For a power cord I'd call Warren Kutok at Photon Instruments Ltd. who is extremely knowledgeable and helpful. Davao Optical has moved into government contract work and the owner was neither helpful nor interested at all in supporting Quantum owners.

That should read Davro Optical.

I'm very sorry to hear that Davro Optical is no longer interested in their Quantums. But then I didn't suppose that the company's nostalgia for them would last forever.

We will see how long it lasts. I had the AS100 and was not impressed. Maybe the seeing was not good when I used it. However, the little telementor was giving me better views on the same night. Hard to beat that little scope.

The Telementor is wonderful. It's also 63mm or aperture at F13.3 so CA is not an issue and images are tack sharp. At 100mm/F10 some CA is inevitable, even if it is a Zeiss.

That thing is amazing. It is way out of my price range but it is very, very cool. Did you see the Eagle symbol? That would place it between January of 1933 and May of 1945. I'm guessing more precisely between 1935 with the advent of the Kriegsmarine and early 1945 with the Allied bombing and destruction of the Zeiss optics plant in Dresden in February, and the Jena factory later in March. However, I would bet this particular telescope is from earlier in the was; as the war progressed resources would have shifted to the production of more strategic military optical devices such as tank sights, periscopes, bomb sights, gun sights, etc.

Looks like a prewar CZJ scope. After the war began Zeiss optics were identified by the code blc (and rln after 1944) to disguise the manufacturer. I'd say, given the eagle symbol, 1933-1939.

It is a very interesting scope. I knew the experts here would provide info on the date. I knew that eagle symbol was special. Thanks

I think this scope was listed a few months ago for $9,000.00.

You're correct, it was listed at $9k but had the Zeiss eq mount with it. It looks like he's just selling the OTA now.

Hi all,
This scope seems to be creating a bit of a stir across the pond too. Google Translator helped me through this.
