Here ya' go. Do you have a Tasco site?
No, I do not have a Tasco site...but that is an interesting thought. I've been compiling information on Tasco and documenting them along with all the other vintage telescopes that are similar. I figured the more data I have, the better chance of understanding the history. This madness started for me when I was looking to buy my first nice vintage scope a couple years back, a Tasco 7TE-2. After going thru the archives on CN, I came across only a few threads on the model which made me want to learn more.
Once I started, I could not stop digging deeper and deeper into the timeline on Tasco's other models as well...which led to Royal Astro and on and on. With the wealth of information here on CN, Amart, Ebay, CL etc. along with sales literature albeit flyers/brochures/catalogs and instruction booklets/sheets that I've collected (all not cheap
) I've been able to figure out most of the timeline on Tasco from mid/late 1959 thru the late 70s. The lack so far of any literature or documentation except for a couple of late 1957 Tasco 7T models has been the most challenging so far along with a few of the transition models in the mid 60s. It's the hope of finding more info on the earliest 1950 Tasco models, that keeps me in the hunt so to speak.
