David, you have now established that C is the eye tube belonging to the Keplerian (long tube), since a Galilean cannot use a graticule, as the eye lens is negative (concave). If you look belond the graticule, you should see another lens called the field lens. If F is a negative lens on its own it will give a small and erect image in all circumstances. If it is a positive lens it will give a magnified image when used as a magnifying glass, but held at arms length it will give a small inverted image. If it is positive, it may belong with C and the eye lens at present with C may belong to A, though with an absent tube.
