That picture is of a Sears 76mm No. 4 6344. A much better scope than what he appears to be selling based on what he's saying. So be careful as you won't get what's in the picture. He's selling a 60mm.

If anyone here really wants the elegant Edmund listed in Jason's post above, I'll pick it up for you for the sale price plus postage... (I'll pack it for free). Just PM me.

Yes, looks like a fun and detailed restoration job. I have been emailing with Doug most of the afternoon (or evening where I am)

I have been looking for one of these to restore for a long time. I got it! I'm so excited to bring this rare scope back from the brink. Just have to drive down to Murrieta to pick it up. This will be a real pleasure to own and restore. You just have to love that wheel! :jump:

Nope. This is the 4th one I have seen. The others were much more complete, but the price was fair for condition and missing items on this one. You can see a complete version here

Thanks Steve. I am going to need to find some of the missing parts. The wooden box(es), tripod, spreader tray, etc.

Thanks Gerald. I will of course post the usual progress reports and pictures on the restoration once that begins.

Congrats Jon, those are the coolest old refractors IMO. I love the helical focuser. If I only had one medium sized old refractor, that would be my choice. Nice find. Terrific finderscope as well. The same one on the Sears 6345. Can't wait to see it all fixed up.
