EQ head for many 114/900 Newtonians and probably 114mm Bird-Jones scopes. Comes with tripod hub and counterweight + shaft.

 

EDIT: It has found a home

Offering up this spider and secondary mirror.

3"× 2 1/8" approx and 12" approx inside diameter.

You can see a tiny chip in the photos. 

I can remove the mirror and it all fits in a medium flat rate box.

Broken Sky-Watcher 80mmED focuser (same focuser as other Synta scopes). Some screws are worn and can't be taken out with standard methods. The teflon(?) under the bearing is gone...

I seriously doubt someone can repair it (although my DIY abilities are not stellar...).

If somebody wants to tinker with it, or just take advantage of the diagonal and locking ring, it's yours. Local pickup or shipped anywhere in the US at your cost.

 

Edit: it found a home.

For the Edmund / Jaegers Nutz - Over-sized Finder Bracket:

 

Edmund Finder Bracket P01.jpg

 

As promised, I put the Asahi Finder on my Jaegers 50, so this bracket is available.  And, I even have a small box for shipping -- now, that is uncommon!

 

(I also have some other old astro-stuff in the shed, but I don't know what if anything is worth shipping.  If you're looking for some old Japanese widget, POST about it.  One of us Old Folks may have it.)

I could use an objective (locking?) screw for a 1966 7te-5.  Of the three pairs of tall/flush screws, I'm missing a tall one.  I'm under the impression that it's an old no-longer made weird Japanese threading.  I'm reluctant to remove any of the remaining screws, since the lens appears to be adjusted pretty spot on.   (of course, if someone knows the size or where I could find one, that helps as well!)
