This is an older made in Japan (Towa I believe), 60mm, f5 scope on an excellent, heavy duty altaz, table-top mount. It provides excellent wide-field views of star fields and also should be a very good way to view the upcoming comets this spring (NEAT and LINEAR). Mount is exceptionally stable and could be used for larger scopes, binos, and heavy cameras also (1/4-20 mounting screw).
The scope has a couple of issues that don't affect its performance significantly. Firstly, the focuser is a bit rough, as the pinion isn't perfectly straight - still very functional though. Secondly, the coating on the outside objective element is wearing slightly around the edges (a band of about 1-2mm). This seems to be the result of someone tightening the retaining ring down improperly; don't see any evidence of the coating wearing generally, so it should be stable.
Scope gives very nice views regardless and would make an excellent rich field scope or a large finder. Included is a nice 6x30 finder (not a crappy 5x24 plastic number), extension tubes to allow straight through use and the original case for the scope and mount. Diagonal shown in the picture is not included.
I would prefer to sell as a unit for $115 shipped (Canada or ConUS) or will sell the scope and mount separately for $70 and $50 respectively, shipped.
Thanks! and clear skies!
