*** Old Hobby Stuff ***


This is some info on my old Hobby Stuff, like the old Observoscope Star Finder,
Sperti Inc. and W. W. Boes Co. Astro Compass MK-II.

So thanks for looking.

See some info below:

Old Observoscope Star Finder from 1943
Sperti, Inc. Astro Compass MK-II
W. W. Boes Co. Astro Compass MK-II

Sperti Inc. Astro Compass MK-II

This is some info for an old Astro Compass MK-II made by Sperti, Inc., made around the year 1942.

See the scans that I made of the original user's instruction booklet that came with my Astro Compass.

Anyway, this booklet is falling apart so very fast that I am posting it here to keep the information from being lost forever.

Please note: this booklet is just a little larger then a post card in actual size and I think it is very beautiful.

Observoscope Star Finder

Observoscope Star Finder - made in 1945

The white lettering on my observoscope is falling off.
I plan to restore the lettering and then
I will post better photos of it some day.
Anyway I am just trying to show how it works.
Also missing is a photo of the bottom showing that
it can be mounted on to a tripod and also the little arow that points to the hour angle.
Also missing is the original compass that goes on the bottom?...
