Anyone know what this 4-1/8" mirror set is out of and what it's worth?
Or should I just pass it on?

Looking at photos I believe it's out of a Palomar JR.

Palomar Jr and Space Conqueror were the same scope, different catalog eras, 4.25” F10. I agree, I think that’s what you have. BTW Mike, I looked all over for you at Stellafane. I asked a couple of folks up on the hill near the McGregor where you usually observe, nobody knew. Sorry I missed you.
