A very sharp coated lens. The guy I bought it from was told it was an Edmund lens from the mid-80's. It looks to me like a Jaeger's lens as I can find no record of Edmund selling 6" objectives. The coating makes me think this is not one of the Surplus Shed Jaegers (if it is, it was one of the early ones!) Anyways... This is a bit of a mystery. The previous owner spent a good amount of time correctly orienting the elements and it shows in the images. There is one scratch or perhaps a coating defect of about 1/2" that is pictured.

I put it in a PVC cell, painted hammertone black and machined to fit over a 6" OD tube and machined for a slip-fit 6-7/8" ID dewshield. I have both available if anyone is interested, though I won't ship such a large tube.

The lens cap is part PVC, part 3.5" newtonian, there is a 3.5" hole as well as a 1.5" dia cap, so you get a choice of 3 apertures to have fun with.
