Hello, I just picked up a brand new in box Meade model 293 for $25 at a yard sale. It was obviously never assembled, and came complete with 4 eyepieces, a 3x Barlow, and a Moon filter. The focuser is unfortunately .965, but its in good shape and everything is complete.

Its 60mm f/15. Does anyone know anything about this scope? Id like to know when it was made, or any other info you folks might have.

thanks
j..
