This is a classic doublet. The deep-sky views under dark skies are fantastic with pinpointy stars and a rich, dark backgound.
I would rate this scope as being an 8 or 9 out of 10 in terms of comparison to other original Jaegers OTA's.
This scope in this moderate focal length is pretty rare. I would guess that the objective is 25 - 30 years old. The optics are coated and the coatings are in good condition. There is one very thin, almost invisible half inch scratch on the objective that does not affect performance.
The tube has been repainted within the last several years and looks great. The tube is baffled and has a nice integrated dew shield extension. The scope has the standard Jaegers 2.7" focuser.
Also included are a nice custom made padded oak carry/storage case, two sets of generic 7 inch rings, and a 6x30 Parks finder that was painted to match the scope.
Richard Berry style Alt/AZ mount in photo not included!
