Here is what I know about it. It looks like a classic edmunds, Comes with both dust covers, finder, spider, holder, seconday, cell, primary mirror and 1.25" focuser. I have tested it and the images are excellent - very sharp and good contrast. Here is the story that goes with it. This scope will not reach focus without an extension tube. I think it is actually about f/8.2. The end of the extension tube is 6.125" from the scope when the eyepiece is seated and focus is achieved. What I considered doing is changing the focuser to a low profile focuser. This should allow a binoviewer to come to focus without the use of a corrector. The tube is about 54" long and approximately 15lbs. Paint has a few scratches but is in otherwise excellent condition. The OD of the tube is 7" - you will need to find a set of rings.
Asking $125 plus shipping. If my asking price is nuts please let me know.
