Excellent condition vintage Celestron "Polaris" 8x50 astronomical telescope finderscope with C8 bracket (good O-ring, nylon tipped metal thumbscrews), fixed (but diopter focusable) illuminated eyepiece in right angle diagonal, working reticle illuminator, "Polaris Guiding Plate" calculator, fuzzy photocopy of the instructions and front cap as shown. Glass clear, ready to use. The illuminator takes a readily available PX14 battery but you can stack two PX13/PX625, taped together with a few metal spacers which is what is in the illuminator currently (and what a PX14 is...take one apart to see). No battery leakage or corrosion in the illuminator. Uncommon to find all the correct pieces, in good overall condition with a working illuminator.
WHO WE ARE: Oddog2 is a husband/wife team, home-based small business specializing in the buying/refurbishment/selling of primarily photographic equipment. We do occasionally have other types of things to sell that come to us as a result of our search for camera-related items. We have 47 years of experience (22 years as a hobby, 25 as a full time effort) with photographic equipment, both as a shooter (17 years newspaper photojournalist) and as a collector/restorer/seller. We have been on eBay as Oddog or Oddog2 since September 1999.
