This is a very nice 2.4" f/15 equatorially mounted telescope from the mid-1980's. It comes complete with all of the original factory .965" accessories, plus two additional, better quality oculars (see below)and is in virtually new conditon. As you'd expect, everything on this one is solidly made of metal -- no junky plastic here. Most important, I have star tested this one, and it has really GOOD optics. Normally, I'm partial to the 700 mm scopes, but this one has the nicest 900 mm objective that I have ever seen.

Specifically, this is a Jason Model # 313, with the heavy duty EQ mount and the odd, reflex-type finder (it actually works!) that was common on imported scopes from this era. In addition to the original H12.5 mm and SR 4 mm .965" oculars supplied, I'm including a 26 mm Ortho and a 15 mm Plossl eyepiece.

This would be a nice scope for someone just getting started in astronomy, or for a second scope and/or a collectable. There is no storage box for this one, but I will pack up everything very carefully. Because of the excellent quality objective and the two extra oculars included [check out the prices of GOOD .965" eyepieces these days, if you can find 'em], I'm asking $125.00 for the scope, and will go 1/2 on the shipping.

Clear Skies --
