CAVE 10" parts & stuff
      #4841996 - 10/03/11 06:25 PM Attachment (102 downloads)

I felt I had to see if I could "rescue" these parts for this 10" CAVE. I convinced the seller to strip the parts for me instead of junking the whole thing. His ex-roommate left it and he just wanted it gone. He would not ship the entire scope and mount - nor was I sure I wanted to pay to have it shipped anyway. Well, here we go!

Cave original finder? This is much bigger than the little one on my 8".

The big eyepiece is most likely a 2" military erfle eyepiece.

Wow Steve, 1959. That would sure be an excellent scope to restore / rescue. Would be a shame to see any of it trashed.

Looks like a Criterion finder.

Cave Orthostars? I haven't found a pic with the numbers on the side like this yet...
Nothing like a flash to show the dust!

Where is the rest of it located? Maybe one of the Cave Rescue League members can go get it.

At least you saved the optics, that's what most important. Maybe someone will dig the other parts out of the trash and post about it here.

Man, I'd make a road trip! Especially when you price a replacement tube from Parks. And then, there's the mount...
