Sony DXC 1200P Trinicon Camera - Trinicon Removed

This is the trinicon removed from the magnetic deflection and focusing assembly.
The large aluminium ring like structure fasten the whole assembly against the telephoto lens assembly.
The plastic ring on the "eye" end of the trinicon holds a filter ( likely infra red ). The whole filter is clouded with a silicon grease like substance.
( This is a common problem with vintage electronics - degradation of rubbers, glues, softening of adhesives etc ). Not sure if the degradation caused here is a result of having being left in a hot and humind environment for too long. ( Made in 1974, discovered in 2008 in a junkyard )
