This is a Tasco by Vixen 5 in. catadioptric newtonain. I bought this for a prodject but have to many and it's been on the back burner too long. The main mirror has some mares on it but they do not effect the performance.. The secondary mirror and built in barlow are dusty but in excellent condition. The tube is ugly. The photo is deseptive. I banged out the large dents and made the tube round again and repainted the inside with ultra flat black. The focuser is a .965 size but 1-1/4 in. visual backs fit the thread. It also comes with a tube extension to reach focus on most eyepieces. The finder needs a crosshair.A very nice portable Vixen optical system that needs some work. I searched in vain for a tube that is 5.5 in. in dia. with no luck. Includes polaris style tube rings.Will ship to conus only. Thanks for looking.
