Quote:My girlfriend dug this up from her basement. It has a tiny finder scope on it along with a Hybrid Diagonal #94 106 and Celestron 25mm SMA 1.25 Wide angle eyepiece. Is it good for anything?Thanks - Ponz

Quote:If it's like this one, it's a keeper. Was there a mount with it? It's a good lunar, planetary and double star scope. The longer focal length will complement your ED80. Or you could look at it as trash and send it to me...

Quote:I was given a brand new one with case in the 90's for xmas one year - Armourcoated or something to that effect - 2nd worst scope I ever owned - sold it shortly thereafter.

Quote:Now if I could only decide how much to offer on my borrowed C90. It's portable and serviceable, but I suspect not the finest of its kind.

What some may view as an argument I view as a different perspective.
Quote:I think the C90 is the cats meow. But then I've owned 5 Corvairs so what does that tell you?
