Got my first morning views of Jupiter & Saturn with my 1984 FC-50 + 1985 Sky Cancer EQ on the restored 1960s Filotecnica:

 

Jaegers 50 Restore S43 - M4348 OTA (FC-50 SxS).jpg

 

The morning was a continuation of last night's sky testing a NOS 1960s A. Jaegers 50mm F12 achro, that I attached to a Monolux (Towa) 4348 OTA -- hence the blue tape.  I've got all the parts to build a same-age OTA, but wanted to make sure the old Jaegers is worth the effort... it is!
