Here are some photo's of my first classic scope a mint 60mm x420mm Carton widefield refractor.I was wondering if anyone can nail the age of this scope down?Iv done some daytime tests the optic's are very sharp and it is well made with a very smooth focuser.Best $40 i ever spent :-)
I have one, mine was sold under the Park brand name, I paid a $100 and only got the 28mm eyepiece but it was in mint condition in the original packing and I felt I got a good deal.
I have used it a fair amount, it's a good scope but at F/7 there is some chromatic aberration visible, splitting Izar, which is easy in my Asahi-Pentax 60mm F/13.3, was barely possible. Currently I mount it on an Quickset "Senior" mount. It's an old photo tripod and handles the scope quite nicely, 200x is possible.
You got a nice scope there...
