So I just received a very nice Asiola with a Zeiss Jena 10mm Ortho, the leather case, and the alt-az connection to the mount. If anyone has the mount part, or know what I can use, please let me know.
It’s in really nice shape. No dents or dings. The objective looks nice, and when I put the 10mm in it and focused on a porch light tonight, the image looked very sharp. No issues I could see. The objective is also a #1 quality.
My concern is the glue in the objective. I’m pretty sure they use the same glue as Telementors and Telematers (sp.?). Is there a concern about that? Did ZEISS use Canadium Balsam?
Also what can be done with the exterior covering? It’s in decent shape, but I would like to return it to it’s original condition. Is it leather?
I appreciate any help you can offer.
