Quote:So I wonder how many 2.4 unitrons you have laying around that you dont use because your Taco seven is so much better.
Quote:Hi All!I have one of the best 60mm Refractors ever produced by TASCO.I was out last evening with the Model 7TE-5 ,and while looking at Jupiter I was amazed to see the disks of the four largest moons,Ganymede,Europa,and Callisto.This instrument has a focal length of 1000mm and I viewed using an 8mm Televue Plossl eyepiece.This is the first time ever seeing this with a 60mm.Is this telescope as good or better than a comparable Unitron?
Quote:Woo Hoo,Look at that scope and all the ones in the background.Bill

Quote:I just hope I don't end up like everyone else here spending lots of money on old dusty scopes.
Quote:Your knowledg for japanese telescope are splendid.Information of Tasco admires over our far.I think tripod and draw-tube are style that Astro optics uses well.Mount style is used by carton and others, We say this style, kojima-siki, designed by syusuke kojima, he is founder of Astro optics.

Quote:But the fact is I have seen the discs during previous observing sessions its just that the satellites' discs were easier to see in this particular scope.
