Is that a Gailand 28mm ortho? (Galoc or whatnot? that tickles the ol memory bank)

That's what it looks like.  :)

Yes it is.  I have one of those in a set of Galocs.  Wonderful eyepieces.

I was going to say It's nice that it's already drilled for a finder scope

And when seeing the spacing of the hardware figured it was likely a Unitron 6x30

It looks like this one also has a mounting block. (barely visible)

Wouldn't it be something if it's the very same scope.

Hi

 

Starman876, I may be interested in the Unitron 8x30 and brackets. Cool to keep this close to original if possible while I stumble my way through learning what I need to know. You all are so interesting. 

What about a RACI finder? Anything that you folks can recommend?

 

Also, I have attached a few pics of more telescope candy.  The Parks 6x30 finder scope was attached to the Parks 10 reflector scope and the Mead came along with that scope as well, but was never mounted.

Can anyone tell me what the offset eyepiece attachment is for? It was strapped inside the wooden box with the scope.

It is a Erecting prism. When used it will give you a image like what you would see thru a binocular. Otherwise

the view through is usually inverted in most astronomical telescopes.

Edmund erecting prisms are very good, using a proper prism shelf just like in a binocular.

Okay, Thank you Robert. I did put it in the telescope and that is exactly what I saw.
