4" f/5 Chinese-made refractor with 2" focuser. $160 including shipping. Airline portable with dew cap detached (length then about 19"). Cosmetically ugly (flaking paint, otherwise fine), but an excellent performer with a 2" focuser that will hold a 31 Nagler and heavy 2" diagonal.I have used this as airline carry on and it is a superb low-power sweeper. Wide, flat field views with my Nagler 31 are superior to the TV 85 in magnitude reach and field of view (5 degrees!). This combination yielded sharp, pin points and best view of the North American nebula I've ever seen (surprising contrast: multi-coated)This is not a planetary scope, but it is an inexpensive scope for open clusters and great low/medium power traveller.
