Does any know something about Zenith Refractor 76.5/1250 mm, made in Japan?
Looks like a 1960-70:th scope

I dont know, but there is a circle k prinz optics Japanese scope in that size - the 660 - I have one and its a nice scope - albeit a tad undermounted, it could be steadier.

I have a 60 MM Zenith, got in 71. Altitude-azimuth mount, but had full slow motion controls. My first telescope. Purchased at a discount house, Zayre, in St. Louis.
