The Parts Start to arrive..

A knock on my front door heralded the arrival of the first and most important bit, the P8079HP tube, and here it is in all its glory:-




Its clearly a used item, because there are chips missing from the rubber seal around the output screen, and a nasty ding on the actual metal surround ring on the sensor end.
However, I have been very lucky because the parts that matter are flawless,- under careful examination, the actual input screen and output screen are clean and unblemished. Nearly every person who`s articles and video`s I`ve read have mentioned slight marking or surface scratches on these parts.
I`m waiting now for the objective lens and jewelers loupe to arrive then I will source and buy the case for the unit.
