I picked this scope up at a yard sale for $20. The glass is excellent, the ep has some dust and seems to have degraded some. The views are "cloudy" I suspect due to the ep. It has a drawtube focuser, and the ep is integral with the draw tube. The gentleman I purchased it from said it was over 50 years old, he had recieved it as a gift when he was 8 years old. He said it was a "Heath Kit" telescope, one that the end user could assemble themselves. Not sure if this is a real collector, or if it might make a decent guide scope with some mods to the focuser?
Thanks for any input
