I've been an amateur astronomer for seven decades now, and seeing a telescope like this brings tears to my eyes. The company that made it, Criterion manufacturing, has been gone now for about two decades, but old astronomers will fondly remember it as the company that made amateur astronomy possible in the United States, and the scope that made it possible was the 4" Criterion Dynascope. first introduced in the 1950's, it sold for $49.50 and was the first production telescope to offer amateur astronomers a precision piece of equipment at an affordable price. It made such things as a parabolic mirror, Equatorial and Alt-Azimuth mount and achromatic 100+ power eyepieces available to the amateur astronomer.
