I own a green tube Celestron Comet Catcher that was sold ... for a short time ... by Astronomy Magazine in the early 80's ... called the "Star 140." I've never seen or heard of any others. Has anyone run across one? It's my favorite "little scope" and it sure does look nice with the green paint job and fancy stripes.

I remember STAR! Until now, I've never seen a STAR-branded version of any of the scopes they sold, however.
