New homes for old scopes (1 Viewer)


Mike Kilburn

Having just bought a new Kowa TSN 883 my wife is badgering me to chuck out my old and battered scopes which the Kowa has replaced.

I have a Leica APO 77 with a zoom lens and a Zeiss 85 Diascope.

Both have been dropped to the point that both the eyepiece and the object lens are visibly dented, bu the Zeiss at least is still just about useable.

I'm loath to throw them away in case even the parts are useful and would welcome any thoughts on who if anyone might want them.

Thanks in advance for any ideas.
