Lurking online I found someone offering locally a very nice Vintage CZJ scope with mount, tripod and accessories. Images attached in this post.
Doing some research I found out it could be an 80mm or a 110mm Refractor made around 1920s. According to the lenght of the tube including bronce focuser (157cm or 62,5inches ) it should be an 80mm Scope. But what is making me doubt is the finder, as looking at different images from catalogues of the era, the finder came on the 110mm model.
Any idea no how to identify the real model prior of looking at the glass and inscription on it?? I've seen several images in this forum and online of the glass on these Scopes and that thats where I will find real info regarding what type of Scope is it. The owner of the scope doesnt know much about it and I'm affraid of asking to look at it and maybe break or misshandle it.
They are asking 1500usd for it complete with boxes and accessories.
Any insights if this is a good buy will be greatly appreciated.
thank you very much!
