Surprisingly good little scope. One of the only things Tasco seems to
have ever gotten right, then for no apparent reason discontinued.I've
owned several of these, and they've all been remarkably nice. Japanese
optics by Vixen. Great for birding or quick/travel astro. Search Astro
Mart forums on 999VR for some photos taken with one like it.

Other Accessories:
9mm Meade eyepiece in Meade box. Metal EP tube. Good little EP
No diagonal with this one. Suggest you get a .965/1.25 hybrid and use 1.25 EPs.
Some sort of zoom eyepiece tube. I put the Meade in it. Sure enough, it zooms.
Focus extension tubes and fittings. (all set screws are with it)
Metal Alt/Az head w/slo-mo knobs for standard 1/4"-20 tripod. (1/4" -20 thread)
Metal focuser. Good construction, smoothe focus.
Finder scope mount, but no finder. (No loss there)
Table top mount with collapsable tripod base. (Extremely sturdy mount.)

Oddly enough, Tasco warranted this thing for life! Optics, scope tube,
focuse. All accessories in very fine condition. Photo is of a previous
scope sold here. Can provide one of this one but it looks just like this,
except without the finder scope.

$100 + shipping from 72111. PayPal preferred. Otherwise Postal
Money Order.
