If you were a fan of the Edmund catalog, you'll remember this one.

This is a 1960's vintage Edmund Scientific "Palomar Jr." reflector. Telescope is believed to be complete and original with the following: 4.25" f/10 primary in adjustable metal cell, prism diagonal w/stalk, Edmund rack & pinion focuser, solid white metal tube, finderscope w/brackets, Edmund 5/8" shaft equatorial mount w/setting circles, heavy pedestal, counterweight, 2 eyepieces (one marked 1/4", the other unmarked but presumably 1" FL), barlow lens, original blue "Palomar Jr." dustcaps.

I wouldn't say this scope is "mint" but it really looks amazingly good for its age. Mirror coating is believed to be original. Optical tube has very few marks or scratches despite having original paint. Mount is smooth and solid with gray crinkle style paint in good shape. Pedestal has a mark in the crinkle paint where counterweight swings but otherwise nice shape.

This was a heavyweight small reflector and was one of the standard, "serious" beginner scopes of its day. Since it includes (I think) all the original accessories, I am offering it for $300 plus actual shipping. I can supply additional photos.

Thanks for looking.
