Hi, I have a Vixen 60L, 60mm aperture and focal length of 910mm, on a wood tripod with wonderful alt az mount. All very solid. You will find your Cygnus 60L in the 1991 Vixen catalogue on the page at this link: http://yumarin7.sakura.ne.jp/Csiryou.html
Go down to the 9th row of catalogues for Vixen, and its in the fourth catalogue in this row.
My 60L f15 is very well made and gives excellent views for its aperture. Mine is in the 1985 catalogue listed at 43500 yen. Regards Mark

I have one with 800mm focal length. A great sharp optics and solid high quality refractor just like usual other Vixen products.
