Attached are four pics of my Zeiss Telementor ll with Zeiss Turret and three Zeiss Jena EP's: H-25, 16-H and 10-O.
I was fortunate to have found a finely machined 1.25 inch ep adapter (supplied by a fine gentleman from Deutschland) which fit in the larger threaded ep hole and inserted my excellent Burgess 24mm Modified Erfle.
I wanted to identify that spartan looking OTA with a little color so I added a "Zeiss" logo just for fun.
Optics are pristine. Focuser = excellent. Zeiss Turret is a dream come true....so smooth with a prism as perfect as I have ever seen. The 40mm finder I was fortunate to locate from Germany and the OTA and mount from a French gentleman. it was a struggle finding all of the extras after receiving the OTA, mount and tripod....almost 2 years to complete this beautiful beast!
A couple of nights ago I observed Jupiter, Saturn, Albireo, a few globular clusters and a few other DSO's in Sagittarius environs.
It never ceases to amaze me how well this small aperture telescope performs at all reasonable powers. Observing with the turret is a wonderful experience and makes the night always special - even with so little aperture. Still so many objects to discover with 63mm of excellent glass.
Guess I said it all....
Clear skies to all Zeiss owners!
