Hi. New to the forum. I picked up this telescope from a garage sale sometime in the 90s when I lived in San Francisco. I had some fun with it but it’s been neglected for some time, so thought I’d learn more about it. As you can see from the photos, it’s an Optica b/c. I can’t find much about this brand/type except for what I’ve seen on this site (old, good quality optics, collectable).
I know it’s missing the counterweight and rod (it didn’t come with one) and I suspect there would have been an accessory tray; the way the legs bolt together looks dodgy.
Can anyone tell me anything else about it and where I might get those missing parts? I now live in the UK; I don’t know if that will make things more difficult or not. Thanks.
