Comet scopes

Post by Derek Attree » Mon Sep 02, 2013 12:37 pm

Hi all
Does anyone know where the scopes go in the coupler for the comet
the books say there were 7 scopes and I know there are 3 in long recess.
Also are they all the same size in all stations.

The next question is are they the same size as the ones in the rotating ones for the driver ect.

Last question is does any one have a drawing of them or a clear photo showing the shape
and size ....

Thanks again

Derek

Hi Stephen
Thanks for the link .
I was hoping that someone had a sketch of where the scopes go as the walk round book is a bit sketchy on the scope details.
I have taken lots of pictures of different comets and again it seems I have over looked this detail too.

Regards
