Help ID TVS-5 like Objective Lens.

Postby Tracer » Wed Jan 18, 2017 1:00 am

Can anyone tell me what I have here? There are no markings except for some red letters in the #4 image which read "BS6 DESCOM 236." The unit maximum exterior dimensions: 15.3 cm (6") wide and 20.7 cm (8 1/8") long.

The catadioptric lens look flawless with close examination, and there is a lens on the back. When I look in through the back lens everything inside the housing looks excellent, no damage or specks of dirt anywhere. The input side of an MX9644 tube matches up to that output lens.

Any ideas?

Since my original post I have seen another objective lens identical to mine on ebay being billed as a TVS-5. Then I see this one on ebay also labelled as a TVS-5. Note the two knobs used to adjust the reticle and the slight difference in the housing.

I assume there were variants to the TVS-5?
