I'm looking for one of the little 5 x 20 finders that came on small refractors sold in the 1960s, BPE [Before Plastic Era]. These were typically all metal (except for the eyepiece), and came with real achromatic objectives (can you imagine?!) Condition isn't too important [minor dings, scratches, and missing paint OK], and would even take just a tube shell w/o the objective and/or eyepiece as long as the main tube and objective cell are metal.

Also looking for a few tripod leg - eyepiece holder brackets from the same kind of telescope -- see photo. Lacking a functional time machine [understand that Art Bell is going to be working on this in his retirement, lol...], I'm hoping that someone may have a few of these in his or her old parts junk pile.

Clear Skies & Happy Holidays --
