tasco department store telescope

Post by johnkra »

FS @ $75 in Hopkins area.

Tasco galaxsee 114mm reflector on manual equatorial mount. Near new condition.
Comes with original accessories: 2 eps, 1 Barlow, 1 red dot, 1 moon filter, original manual, and box with all internal packaging.

Views are ok but improved using better eps and Barlow.

Reach me at kj0p at arrl dot net

Warmer evening please

What is the focal length? It would be important for the potential buyer to know if it is a normal Newtonian reflector, or one of the Jones-Bird designs with a focal length corrector lens inside the focuser tube.

Spec. is 1000m and tube length is around half that. It is possible that the included Barlow is the corrector. As indicated in my post using a decent Barlow and decent eps the views are ok for the instrument.
