If everything goes as planned I will have purchased a Pentax J60 on Labor Day. It has a nice altaz.mount with three .965 eyepieces-25mm Kellner-12.5mm Kellner-6mm Ortho. The refractor scope is 60mm x 700mm. I understand it was made by Asahi Optical Company 1938-2002 Japan. Asahi means "morning or rising sun". Thanks for any feedback.
Good luck with your pending purchase. The J60 is a very nice scope, beautifully finished, the mount is robust for a 60mm...

The three .965 eyepieces performed very well in that I might just keep this scope with original equipment. I can't wait to view the Moon & planets. There is very little CA on bright stars & with the 6mm Ortho at 117x nice concentric rings on stars. The 25mm Kellner at 28x & 12.5mm Kellner at 56x enhances the Pentax's excellent optics.

But, I certainly enjoyed the views I had from mine. The whole package oozed quality, and the views of Mars were quite revealing for a small aperture. The mount was a little masterpiece.
Congrats to whoever the new owner is!
