There's also a 30x40 Micronta draw scope (in its own hinged box, too) on eBay at this time. Some of these old 'pirate' scopes can be excellent. I got a chance to look through an old Wollensak the other weekend and it was surprisingly bright and crisp.

I have to post a pic later of a 50mm Swift alt-az I picked up that turned out pretty cool. I was impressed anyway.

My hope is the 50mm was also, as I won it...

The wood all needs refinishing, the mount needs paintin and regreasing, but its a nice little 50mm.No makers mark on the logo, though, and charmingly misspelled instructions.
But before restorations begins, I will take her out for spin over the weekend on the young moon and planets and report back....
Yepp, I do like these little scopes......
