Hi gang, I came across a fellow who said he had a telescope up in his closet and hadn,t used it much in 40 years. So up we go to take a peek. He brings down this beautiful wood tongue and grove box. Here inside is this beautiful 60mm white tube tasco with chrome knobs, Quality equatorial mount and I mean quality. Beautiful wooden tripod. The lens on this little beauty is fully collimatable.He wanted $100 for it. I have other high end scopes but this little guy not only gives great views on the planets and the moon but its helping me rekindle some great memories as a boy in 1960. Thought you,d enjoy this .

These early Tascos are a real steal and for 100 dollars is a steal. The optical quality and workmanship is top notch. I hope you bought it.
