An original 2.4" Japanese refractor, imported in the mid 1980s when the optical and mechanical quality was still pretty good. This particular unit, a 60 x 900 mm model on a standard EQ mounting, is in great condition and is optically among the best that I have seen. It comes with the standard complement of .965" eyepieces and ccessories, AND a 15 mm Plossl and a 26 mm Orthoscopic.

The only possible "downside" of this nice, fully usable instrument is that it was imported under the "Jason" nameplate (it's a Model 313), and it has the funky "reflex" type finder that was used on small refractors in this period. [Actually, the finder works fine, once you get used to it.]

If you are looking for a nice (i.e., decent optics & all metal parts)telescope for a highly portable and/or second 'scope, or something for some older kids to use, this might be worth considering. I'd like to get $100.00 for it, but will consider reasonable offers.

Thanks --
