I am sure there should be two. There is only one when sold with the FC76

Only the EM1S is listed but I am sure it is the same mount

I am sure your right. I am only going by what is in the pictures.

Too bad the tripod legs are missing, probably not easy to find originals.
There`s a picture here in this old ad of the tripod.

I bet you do! I myself do not know whether I should laugh or cry.

I think the weight is heavier on the em-1 than the p2 that came with my fc-76

I spoke with him on the phone. He had just woken up from a good day's sleep.

So he hadn't been to see the scope yet. Tomorrow morning.

Are you really not planning on bidding?

I just noticed in the manual posted above that the drive calls for SIX volts, not 12, and definitely not the much later 24 volts.

The tripod probably looked very similar to the one with my P2 mount/FC-76 scope from 1982. Only the P2 castings are a pretty hammertone metallic green, and so are the metal parts in the tripod legs. The EM-1 probably had that gray-green paint color on the tripod leg metal parts and white lower leg extensions like these. The tray looks identical to the one with the P2 mount as well.

Looks like a new player has come into the bidding. This is the same person that is bidding in a couple of other vintage scopes. Tim????
