Optrex did exist but was bought by Koyocera and has disappeared. Optex is an unrelated supplier of security sensors.

From the information you give, you could buy a right angle prism, erecting type, which allows daytime use as well, like this

and a couple of eyepieces suited to the scope

Upside down image

Astronomical telescopes show a upside down image. For terrestrial use, you can buy a erect image eyepiece. They are not made for astronomical use since they reduce the light and contrast.

A lens is missing

This telescope uses 1.25 inch eyepieces. Comes originally with a 20mm and a 4mm (probably cheap modified acromats) The 4mm would exceed the maximum practical magnification. 50x per inch. Many eyepieces available on Ebay and telescope vendors. If the 20mm is missing, buy a 20mm Plossl. I prefer other designs focal lengths under 12.5mm because of the eye relief. Agenaastro makes great, inexpensive ($55). I like the Sterling Plossls from Smartastronomy too Eyepieces for planetary viewing I suggest the 5.2mm for your high power or a TMB planetary (Astronomics has them for $50 Get the 5 or 6mm
