Would any of you have the Jason Discoverer #313? It is their 60mm f/15.2 which ran for one year in 1977. It is one of the highest quality achromat objectives I have ever encountered and a leg-up from my two Unitron 60mm. Unfortunately, I sold my #313 setup at a star party years ago and am currently missing it!
I will pay up to $330 for the scope on it's very rigid eq. mount. Even moreso if you have the rare RA drive. The ota should be metallic grey/gloss with a beautiful machined dew shield with two carved silver bands on the end. The focuser will have a heavy duty built .965" draw tube which extends about 8-9 inches. The finder is an SLR type and the mount has round, ash legs. Also, the slow motion controls should be rubber coated and the knob ends made of machined steel. Some #313 packages were equipped with a tiny accessory tray lamp. Hope this description helps.
Scope must be in "showroom" condition. The tripod can have a few scratches, as stain will hide them, but the optical tube must be mint or with scratches so minor, I'd not notice them. At the moment, I cannot be contacted by phone so e-mails only
