Hello refractor fans!
I have a very early SV 102 APO doublet. It has OK-4
LOMO configured glass. I have not seen one like this one before since it is white with black dew shield. It has a lens cover with felt trim instead of a screw on like my TV 102. It had an 8.7 FL. Most I have seen are all white or blue. I wonder if Vic got some heat for making it look like a Televue product and changed it.
Has anyone seen one like this before. It is serial number 0022. It has a FT focuser and no discernable color compared to the TV 102 which has a tiny bit at 200X and above. The views are amazing and seems to punch above it's size .
I'm hoping to see another early one. One I saw with an even earlier number was all white. I am a bit confused.
Thanks for any replies!
