I think optically she should be pretty much on par with my 75/1200 Uni.

How is the orignal wooden tripod? Is it secure enough without wobbling when focusing?
I found the exact Tasco selling in my local newspaper ad, and am going to go and have a look at it this weekend. cheers.

The original tripod is metal and works good if the legs are not clamped down to tight, where the legs attach to the mount the azumith motion will get stiff and cause snap back from flex.
Is the one you found still in the box? if so that's really cool, be glad I did not know about it...lol, it might have the GIANT Rand McNally Moon Map and a couple of ep's and a barlow also. I would replace the .965 accessories with 1.25's, a 1.25 prism diagonal fitted on with a 1.25 hose clamp works great. My favorite ep's in that scope are a 20mm and 12mm for full framing the moon. If you need help just send me a PM, I had to service mine to get the glare out because sometimes they don't spray paint the drawtube flat black, mine was a little shinny, after I did that and blacken the lens edges the problem was solved. If yours is as good as mine I'm sure you'll be very satisfied, I hope you get a brand new one, enjoy your Classic Tasco, I love mine!

I don't think the one I will be seeing comes in original box - but it looked in good condition. I also want to try my 66TE D=50mm onto that tripod with all the 0.965" EPs coming with the 49TE.
I will certainly upload photos of them if I get it. cheers.
