This is Tak ts50mm refractor (early 80s) with the Tak adjustable lens cell, nice R&P focuser, a .965" Tak diagonal, and adapter that threads to the focuser. I assume 1.25" accessories can be used with it as well with the right tak adaptor. The serial number on it is #5015. The small rings for the scope do not have the screws. Apparently, metal screws were used since the OTA has severe paint scars from use which are not evident in the photo. The focuser shaft seems to have been dropped because it is slightly bent, but the quality of the machining is so good that it feels smooth and no "wobble" can be detected. I see no dents on the knobs though. That's how well this things were made! The optics look in excellent condition, but a bit dusty, and I dont want to touch them. My hunch is that this is a superb guidescope unrivaled by any other junk out there. I really have no idea of the value, so I will consider the best reasonable one I get. I can provide detail close-ups to anyone interested. SOLD- thanks Tom
Thanks for looking.
