Hey Chris ...

Where the heck are the pictures of the guts of your scope????   :)
I'm either at my bench, here, or on PokerStars.

A CCD is a charge-coupled device, not a charge-capture device.  Chris said the latter at one point.  :) Just an fyi

Because there wasn't one for AmpHour #12.

Hey John,

Great point! I was meaning to actually post those on my blog soon. Gotta keep them coming in somehow, eh?

I'll be sure to post a link here when I do.

Chris

Shoot, thought those resized automatically (they do through the WP interface but I didn't use it). I'll fix it. Sorry!

Cool pix Chris! Thanks.

Niggly point ... are you sure it's a Tek 485?  Your first picture of the panel seems identical to my 475A, and I googled pictures of 485s, and they don't quite match. *shrug*

My guess would be 465M, since he mentioned it was the ruggized version of the popular model on the show, and I believe it was somewhat modular. If I remember correctly, it's not actually related to the 465 (the 465M name was for marketing reasons), but based on the 455.

I've never needed to take mine apart so I have no idea if it's modular or not.

Wow, I wasn't even close (nor did I look, sorry!). It was the 425M.

Much love for the 465M. If I remember right it was designed to be dust proof so it's totally sealed and has no fan (unlike the 465). They don't suffer for it either (think military temp range), but they're not often well taken care of on the outside. Still, it's nice to see pictures of a scope's guts without a fleck of dust on it after thirty years! I'm not sure if the 425M would be the same, but those pictures make me think so as everything is nice and clean.
