Does anyone know who made these? It doesn't resemble the typical Towa refractors of the era, and doesn't have the "circle T" marking - instead it has "SYW".

I hope that helps. My grand father kept everything! please reach me @ firstname.lastname@example.org . I will be happy to share the paper work. the other company was Mayflower. All I know is that my grandfather purchased this in 1970. I have ever letter, receipt and manual. I hope this helps.

I try to attach an image (the original color of the focuser is darker (more like your images) as on my pictures. Sorry for the quality but I had to borrow a digital camera
Sorry for the large image, I apologize for any inconvenience I caused with that and try to attach a smaller version.

Anyone an idea who is the real manufacturer or heard about " denkar " or the " syw " in the diamond? As I`m interested in the history of this instrument, every hint is wellcome.
Sorry for the large image , I apologize for any inconvenience I caused with that and try now to attach a smaller version.

Many of the parts look extremely similar to my Mayflower - especially the focuser and finder bracket. I don't think I have ever seen one that looks like yours - it is certainly very unusual and interesting.
Thanks for the photos!

What name would you give the colour of your mount and scope parts. I am restoring an Astro Opt/Royal 60mm F20 mount and tripod and they share the same colour as yours. Mine needs a respray however
Have you any idea what colour this is ???
