Vintage 1960s Tasco 60mm refractor. F/16.7.

Galileo would have disavowed the de’ Medici family for this telescope.

A few scratch marks on the tube, but the optics remain as outstanding as the day they were crafted, inserted and aligned in Japan. Once owned by famed Minnesota astronomer Willy Groebner. The long focal length of this telescope features outstanding definition of the moon and planets. Optics throughout are in excellent shape for being 60-plus years old. Comes with 1.25 inch right-angle diagonal. Original viewfinder offers a 6-power wide field view. S/N 761653. Buyer pays shipping and insurance, if the latter is desired.
