Hello again. I've recently rescued this old scope from my local club, and wanted to confirm its identity with the renown classic telescope community. I BELIEVE what I have is one of these:
That is, the 12X40 guidescope of a #20TE. Unfortunately, the scope badge is missing (If there ever was one), and the scope was painted in a horrible baby blue when I found it. I have since sanded the blue off revealing the original white, and I intend on touching it up with a light coat of gloss white. It will then find new life as an auxiliary finder on my 76 mm Royal. What do you think?
Pictures after a THOROUGH cleaning and sanding of the blue paint.:
