I have (2) of these .965" holders, but I don't know what they are called. I looked in most of the places to see if I could find out what they are called, but to no avail. In my ad I called them image correctors.

I would appreciate if someone could answer this post.

Thanks

Jack

Its a Porro prism image erector designed for a small, generally 60mm, Japanese refractor telescope. The Japanese almost always prefer to look thru a refractor straight thru unlike us Americans who prefer the 45 degree angle of an Amici prism diagonal.

A bit of an urban myth, I'm afraid.
