I got this in a trade and it is really is a kick of a little scope. It is basically a modified Tasco body(.965")with a machined aluminum 1.25 adapter. It has a fully coated 70mm objective. It has a "bean can" literally as a dew shield that is all painted black and beautifully mounted onto the tube. The inside of the tube is blackened and baffled. The eyepiece is a modified binocular with a modification to fit 1.25" diagonal. It is a rack type focuser. Also comes with a Meade mirror diagonal and 1/4-20 mounting plate. I was going to use it as a finder on my dob to replace a 50mm but it is too heavy. Would make a good finder on a big dob. PayPal or money order.
