This scope would make a nice Christmas gift for a kid who might be interested in the hobby. This is a 4.5" reflector (910mm f8) and it comes with an Equitorial mount, 5x24 finder, 3 .965" (25mm, 12.5mm and 4mm) eyepieces, and a 3x Barlow.

Realistically, this is a "department store" telescope. The mount is a little shaky and your views through the Barlow and 4mm eyepiece are too dark/unsteady to be useful. The 25mm and 12.5mm eyepieces work ok.

I will include a Meade #70 rack and pinion focuser. Take a small adapter off of this focuser, put it on the telescope and you can use standard 1.25" eyepieces. You get quite nice views this way but you have to have 1.25" eyepieces.

Originally cost nearly $300 when my wife bought it for me a couple of years ago. I have all original boxes and manuals. Will sell for $150 (or best offer) and you pay shipping.
