This is the same scope in the other thread that I posted. I don't recall right offhand, but I think eBay pulled it the first time. Do you remember Don? ("Oddball CAT")

It looks like an old Edmund focuser on it. (deja vu)

Regards and clear skies,

Actully that might be a real good scope. Never know. I seen some captured Russian equipment a long time ago Vietnam era. That scope looks real familiar to me.

Looking at the picture I see some kind of vanes (support?) just above the mirror, you can also see their shadow on the mirror. With a correcter why would you put something in the optical path? Surely must have been some kind of military or industrial instrument not meant for visual applications.

Yes this is true, x or in this case a bullseye marks the spot. If your target was covered your on target.Also notice the the hot plastic bulleting on the external body of the scope typical early Russian era LR observation scope. Those rat ........ always liked to keep there distance. Sorry dont want to get political this is not the place.

It also has about a 50% central obstruction...much larger than a commercial maksutov should have. This is even larger than a schmidt has. :shocked: It must be military.
