    Looking for info on some old optics

    Hi,
    New here. Found this forum while searching for info on some old optics I got in a box at an auction. I'm wondering if any might be for large format cameras. I have a feeling I may have some telescope parts in the mix, but I just don't know. I'm a photography enthuaisist but have not ventured into large format. This is one of those deals you get when you bid on something else.
    Here's a guide to what is in the photos (from left to right). :
    1. some kind of filter holder (?)
    (back row)
    2. Bausch & Lomb OPtical Co. ROchester N.Y. U.S.A. 3173229 (maybe 3 optics, visable one marked 18 In. E.F.)
    3.Bausch & Lomb OPtical Co. ROchester N.Y. Maggard-Bradley Co. Moreehead, Ky. (maybe 2 Optics, top one marked 5 1/8 in E.F. B & L O Co)
    4. Gundlach - Manhattan Optical Co. ROchester N.Y. (Maybe 3 optics, visable one marked with name, 5 1/2" and Front)
    5. Bausch & Lomb tube (Maybe 3 optics. Tube marked B & L O Co., 3 In. E.F., and Front)
    (Front Row)
    6. Maybe an eye piece? No name marking. Graduated 4 3 2 1 0 +1 +2 . "Right" appears to be written by hand on brass.
    7. ?
    8. ?
    9. Threaded barrell with maybe 2 optics. Embossed label says 2.5 IN. f/3.5 Miyauchi

    Other Picture
    2 Koncia optics. Maybe from a camera but I found vague references to a copier. Just throwing it out here in case it applies.

    Any help with these ID's appreciated.

    They are mostly projector lenses, but you can use them on cameras like large format or digital.
