Vixen 100mm f/10 Newt OTA Super Polaris
This is a great, classy looking 4" f/10 reflector from Vixen, from the Super Polaris era, late 1980s to early 1990's
Fitted with a 0.975" visual back / eyepiece holder. This can be swapped out with the standard Vixen thread-in 1.25" visual back.
I might have the original finder and bracket

The primary mirror with a flashlight test reveals some dust. An area of the mirror around one of the mirror clamps reflects a rainbow colored smudge. Eyeballing the clamp it is 1/2" long. The area affected by the colored smudge surrounds the clip by 1/4-1/2" or so. I cannot see evidence in the eyepiece of this condition.
Secondary mirror appears fine looking down the focuser.

Visually this is great on planets, as expected.
This includes hinged rings each with a threaded metal block. This fits/ bolts directly on some variations of the Super Polaris mounts or a dovetail can be attached.
There are a few blems on the tube that cleaned off with a damp rag, after I took the pics : (

Length 37"
Width outside diameter: 6" at each end (approximate)
Push pull collimation screws
