Black tube with Celestron label. Made in Japan, this is the scope now sold by Orion as the VX80, and _not_ the current Chinese-made Celestron Firstscope. Aluminum lens cell, high quality coated, airspaced doublet, nice 1.25" focuser. Chromatic aberration is barely detectable...these scopes beat the Pronto/Ranger on just about all counts, except for field width. Excellent quick-look scope for lunar, planetary, and solar viewing, and surprisingly good on deep sky from a dark location. Also makes a great guide scope.

This scope is in excellent working condition with clean optics. The "Celestron" decal has faded from being displayed in a sunny window, and there is a very small crease in the side of the small I didn't even notice it when I bought the scope, but I'm disclosing here so you won't be surprised. Otherwise the scope is in fine condition. Includes front and back caps, 6x30 finder (no caps for finder). $195 + $12 shipping in US.
