Have here for ya a very clean for its age, 1984 Celestron (Carton or Vixen of Japan) .965-inch 90-degree prism diagonal. It will come with its original, over-sized set screw.

This is one of my favorites of the vintage small-class diagonals as this model is NOT aperture stopped and ALL of the unit is metal; aluminum for the upper barrel and triangle body and the lower barrel brass. It is a lovely upgrade to later-years Tasco, Bushnell, Celestron, and Meade refractors, and is quite at home in any vintage C90, Meade 97-series Mak, or in 30mm and 50mm finder scopes with tension slit focusers for right angle format viewing.

Weighs exactly 2.7 ounces.

Cosmetics are excellent on the lower barrel, excellent on the triangle body, and very excellent on the eyepiece barrel and set screw. The prism is free of fungus, scratches or chipping. Extremely light coating pits here and there at worse; overall optically excellent, maybe better to those less discriminating. You will NOT be disappointed with this Japanese-made prism!

Price doesn't include shipping. Will ship to anyone anywhere.
