My daughter found this scope at a church rummage sale.
As is for 10 bucks!
I won’t see it ‘till December (vacation) but I got a project lined up for me..
Missing a dovetail and a finder as far as I can see.

Lucky you! It's a nice find. I would suspect the dovetail is on the side of the rings not shown. Enjoy.

As is so typical, the position of the polar axis would make it appear the original owner did no know how to properly use an EQ mount, unless they were using it for terrestial use. I see so many low end scopes advertised with the EQ mount in this improper position.
