Hi, 

I just purchased a used Zeiss Diatal, and it hasn't yet been shipped to me.  I have a few questions regarding it.

First, it has a claw mount of some sort on it (see picture at end of post).  Can these mounts be adapted to fit on an 11mm dovetail?  If not, I'm thinking of removing the mounting bracket.  How are these brackets attached, with solder?  Weld?  If soulder, I can melt the bracket off.  If weld, I'll have to cut/grind the bracket off.  Would cutting/grinding the bracket be likely to damage the scope because of all the vibration involved?

Do these scopes have self-centering reticles?  Regarding self-centering reticles, can they be retrofit to scopes that lack them, or not?

Is it possible to replace the seals on these?  

On this particular one, there is fog inside of the scope.  If the seals were to be replaced, and the scope filled with inert gas, is it likely to work, or on a scope this old do you you think internal components have rusted out?

Thanks.

It's made by Hensoldt, which I believe was a subsidiary of Zeiss.
