Lurking about the interweb I came across a C14 orange tube ..
The ad said good optics with case .. mount and drive need work .. ( key word here NEEDS WORK)
So I ask for details ... I get a few pics of the OTA , and case .. not too bad ..for a vintage unit .
Then later ( 2days) I get photos of the forks, drive and tripod.. . let's just say it's bad.. corrosion everywhere . Flaking paint and white aluminum corrosion everywhere .. wires disconnected .. it's a mess ..
That's the bad part.. the good part.. it's close by ..50 miles so I'm off to check it out . I will post pics as I see it .. maybe it's worth the trouble . Maybe not ..
Stay tuned ..
