How about a 516?  I actually don't know if it works yet, but it might, or I might fix it ^^'

The shitload of idiots at Danaher. I shall kill the executives with Tektronix 465s to their head and throw a party at their grave site.
I'm not saying we should kill all stupid people. I'm just saying that we should remove all product safety labels and let natural selection do its work.

Well, they have taken a supremely innovative company like Tektronix, and starved them of R&D to create new products and instead focus on scamming people with 10 year old technology because they purchase Tektronix and that's what they always have purchased.

Does a Tek type 526 vectorscope count?  I also have a 7834 storage with 4 plugins, but I don't think that would count... too "new"

Saw today a 519 in a local surplus store. $450 IIRC.  Did not look as good as this picture. It looked huge and old.

Bastard!  I've been hunting for a 519 for a while. It's a really unique and special scope.

Anyone have an idea what model that is?

Well... it's an old thread but why not.

Here's my old RM503. "Precision low frequency oscilloscope" with inverting and noninverting inputs.

I have a  Tek 503 and a 535 box of bulbs. Also a clone of a 545 made by Hickok which I'm wondering if I should part it out or restore it.

The 535 was used in a movie I was in because the director loved all the knobs, but I think it ended up on the editing room floor.
