This is a quite rare and well-preserved Goto Kogaku 60mm f/15 doublet refractor on the original altazimuth mount. The scope OTA is in remarkably good condition for its 50+ years of age and has some paint chips but no dents. The dewshield is fine as is the single knob focuser. The objective is dusty but without chips or scratches and is (as expected) uncoated. It comes with the original 5x24 finderscope and stalk, but the stalk threads look stripped where they fit onto the OTA. The mount has adjustable wooden legs (leather straps to tie them together when transporting), slow motion controls and counterweights for balance. Also comes with HM6, 12, and 25mm eyepieces and a convertible T30-AH40 eyepiece - all are 0.965".

Serious inquiries and offers welcome (might consider offers for high quality modern refractors as well).

Thanks,
Paul
