I was using this as a living room decoration but a curio cabinet has now replaced it. It has a .965" focuser with a prism diagonal and 2 Huygens EPs. The legs are wood and in good shape as are the optics. The equatorial head is identical to what Orion calls an EQ-1. The finder could use some TLC as the paint is rough in spots and one of the adjustment screws is stripped. I would imagine that this tube could be used for astronomy but I think it's best suited for a decoration/conversation piece. The shipping cost for this from NJ to CA is about $30 via Parcel Post.
