Quote:here is a close up
Quote:If you look at the picture from Mike E that is a telementor II. I think you have a Telementor that dates before mine which places it before 1970.
Quote:I noticed that also. Will check into that tonight. maybe just needs a little cleaning..

Quote:Starman, my Telementor looks exactly the same as Mike's one. I was posting the image of original homemade OTA that came with the lens. I put the lens into the Telementor right now. Now I need only clear sky!
Quote: Well, I found out that I put the lens into the Telementor's OTA in wrong way. Unfortunately, my C63 lens does not fit into the OTA in its correct orientation...
Quote:There is no correct thread from the long side of the C63/840 cell. There is one but only very very shallow and the cell inner diameter is slightly smaller than the diameter of the outer thread on the Telementor sliding tube.
