Well, since Steve linked it, I'll fess up. The three refractors are mine. I'm not losing my mind, just changing the direction of my observing interests. The 2.4" and 3" refractors, which were seldom broken out for observing in favor of the larger telescopes that I have, have now been relegated to non-use by my recent acquisition of a Q3.5 (vintage, or course). Like the dozen plus antique military rifles I've sold off over the last year that never got used, as well as the garden scale train collection, these telescopes need to go to a home where they will not be packed away in perpetuity along side the bathtowels and spare linens.

You have to understand this is pretty kicked back small town in big Texas ranch country. The owner is 63 and a bit difficult even getting around some focuser information with the scope in front of him. I think it's a helical. It's all more like "Here it is, come and look at it". The bino is interesting. Does anybody know anything about the Tuthill bino?
I'll be down there in about a month, for a Spring visit. I'm interested is some accessories, not the scope particularly, know nothing of the finder, the mirror has been face up uncovered for at last the last 3 years and the owner says its pretty dirty and he has no concept of coating condition. I could transport from Llano to Denver if you're along the way.
The listings may disappear as he'd just as soon not bother with it till I get there and look at it all. Maybe, maybe not. I told him to leave it all up, and I'd relay any info I get. He didn't care, his call, even stating he understands I might look at it and not want anything. It'll just be easier that way. You gotta understand, this is small town in.....

This is as far as I can get to relay.

I'm not sending the seller a note, but he has a bit of disclosure issue with the substantial substitution of a vintage Celestron fork/drive assembly. The Celestron looks to be late orange tube to early black tube. I guess it doesn't matter since he says the drive doesn't work?!?!

I have the ol' precurser Criterion Dynamax 8. Cute little blue bunny hopper when sitting on a table. Nothing frustrating about it, even though the optics AND mechanics have issues. It does work. It is what it is and I don't let it bother me. It's vintage, it's classic because I think it is, and girls of all ages at public star parties find it cute, it has great cosmetics and cool aesthetics. I'll slowly mess with it when it gets it's turn, and it will get better. Lord knows I have other scopes for other aspects of viewing so no frustrations at all.

The villian hacks onto existing sellers auctions to list over five pages of items. One of the other items is a Tak FS 102 sold by the tile man. I let the seller know she was hacked and recieved a thank you.

It works like an OAG: there's a little mirror you can flip into the tube that picks off some of the light cone.
