I have an excellent 90mm F10 900MM Tasco refractor on a quick set tripod (eq2 with machined bolt). This tripod goes all the way up and is rock steady for this setup and its great because if your short its good and if your tall like me its good because the legs extend too. With this refractor I have seen under pretty dark skies M5, M13, M96 near M13, M5, Saturn looks great in it , Mars gives good views also. It is a Synta blue make , the optics are superb to the cheap ones now and stunning views of the Double cluster. Great scope for those cold nights or for that matter the hot nights with dew. AN example is I had a Schmidt cassegrain and a reflector side by side with it and the refractor pulled through with flying and I mean flying colors. Comes with Telrad base 1.25 diagnol, focuser brand new condition. Even picked out M81,82 with this scope and for the limiting aperature believe me thats a feat!!!!!!!!!
Asking for this great setup 250.00 shipped CONUS.
Thanks and Clear Skies
