Does anyone know about this Telescopes? I have a 10" diameter scope with an 1.25 eyepiece. Any help would be great.

Please post some photos. If it is an Optica b/c 10" telescope, it is indeed a rare and probably fantastic scope.

I grew up in the Bay Area and purchased eyepieces and accessories at Optica B/C. They made mirrors and complete telescopes that were expensive, way beyond my budget. They made strong claims about their optical quality and I had mentors who owned their scopes and said the claims were true, so good luck with your new scope!
