We're not sure what the former owner had in mind for this, some sort of Nikon adapter for Vixen astronomical telescopes. One piece was made by Vixen and is marked "for common", has 60mm threads on one side and a Nikon T-mount on the other. T-mounts are usually threaded to a lens and two-piece so you can rotate the two parts in relation to each other but in this. This one has the inner piece integral to the "for common" part. From there a Nikon BR-3 ring has been attached to what looks to be a home made (but well done) 2" nosepiece. Any ideas as to what they had in mind? Maybe these two pieces don't actually work together though they do attach to each other. We suspect the real value and valid application is just the Vixen adapter.
