Any one have any information about this vintage telescope?  Is it worth anything?  Where to sell it?  Thank you.

Google Uncle Rod’s Used CAT Buyer’s Guide. There is a chapter covering the Criterion that will answer all your questions.

That is the telephoto lens version. The telescope version comes with a clock driven mount. It works much better as camera lens.

I don't consider anything manufactured after I learned to drive "old", but that's just me.

Yes, I Realized that was a telephoto lens, but I only found info as a complete telescope. The manuals and accessory information still applies, especially for collimation, etc.

Yeah, I have the astronomical version myself. At the time it was the only SCT scope I could afford and my first store bought scope but I soon went back to my 10" atm newtonian again. I didn't have a wedge and a tripod for it so it was pretty useless to me. I could have made one but why bother?
