Help coronado bf10??

Post by Ahousefavor » Sat Nov 02, 2019 1:11 pm

So I purchased a sm40, tmax, and bf10 combo on offerup for 100$ last week. Everything is immaculate except the "bf10" the sm40 is serial number 292 so I figured there both from early coronado before meade took over and that's why the bf10 looked different (the diagonal is black instead of the gold color that it should be and think it's not the prom t version because the sides dont look the same). I just got them in the mail today and as I'm looking at the bf10 and I realise the no filter on the side that goes into the scope (itf filter I think)... is this safe to try out lol?

Attached are pictures of it
