A beautiful sight to be sure. A 1961...you still have and use it?
Yes I do. I've had to do minor restoration...mainly just paint the mount and repair the clutch otherwise I've done little to it. I marvel at its optics everytime I use it even tho the coatings are about 20 years old. Lots of viewing hours thru this scope.

She sure is a beauty of a scope! Wow, that pic was 1970's huh? Hey was that by chance the partial solar eclipse of March 7, 1970 ? If it was, I have a string of shots I did with a old Kodak Pony 135 camera and Tri-X film using eyepiece projection with my 3 inch Sear refractor back then!
Man, seeing this pic, I ought to get mine out and start a thread on old times!! Whaddya think?

Good price let us know how it performs. The mount takes some patience to operate but if you have original optics it should perform beautifully.
