----------------SOLD---------------I have a tasco made by vixen 5" shmidt newtonian for sale. It is in excellent condition. Optics are in excellent condition. Despite this scope being in excellent condition the optics are quite poor. Not typical vixen quality. Images are only good up to about 40x. If you look on the forums you will see other comments to this effect. Maybe it is out of collimation or needs some adjustment - or maybe its just a tasco. Anyway, someone out ther could use this as a giant finder or know how to fix it. It comes with a 6x30 finder scope(removeable with dovetail bracket), 1.25" focuser, rings, and corrector cap. No eyepieces or mount.
If I cannot sell this for the listed price I will part it out. If you are interested in parts of this let me know. Pictures will follow later today.
UPDATE - This is a catadioptric newtownian. Fellow astromarter's corrected my posting - Thanks
This scope has an optical window not a corrector plate. It also has a correcting element in front of the diagonal. I hope this helps.
