Quote:Thanks. Clint, with the guide scope and sliding counterweight attached, does it become a 155?

Quote:Steve,The transformation from last Oct. is impressive An early 152, being an original unit is a rarity would be my guess. Have you decided on which objective?I hope it's now just the motor drive that you would need for a 155 transformation. Great thread! ThanksBill
Quote:Sent the original lens that came with this scope to Barry at D&G today. Now that I have a second lens back in my hands, felt safer sending this one off. There are some minor fungus issues (after being stored in a garage in St. Paul, MN for 15 years), so I really wanted Barry to do the cleaning for me. Sorry this has been so slow...
