    I would not think it's astronomical. Rather some microscope EP or a small projection lens. Have you tried to disassemble it? You will need to - it seems to be in a bad need for a serious cleanup. When you do, let us know what lenses make it. Then we can talk more detail.

    It looks like it belongs to a ships scope, not an astronomy scope.

    This one is a Busch & Lomb 10x widefield microscope eyepiece:



    Which is similar (lens size), but not exactly the same. More important question is have you tried using it with your scope? If it works then the provenance will not matter much I suppose.

    Best,

    Hernando
