The 75mm got too expensive. With shipping the objective was almost as expensive as the entire Tasco.

I think the last 75mm lens went for $150.

I think the mad craze of bidding is over. Things are back to normal. Evident of tile guy sales. prices are back where they belong.

When I retracted my bid the amount was at $170.51 plus the shipping. The Tasco was $180 plus shipping.

You got a great scope instead of just an onjective. I would be very pleased if I were you. And you most likely have a better scope in the end.

The telescope package looks great. Likely the optics will be fine. I think you got it at a bargain price.

When I was cleaning up what I thought was a Tasco I found this small makers mark! What does it mean??

I have a Vixen SP-80 refractor, and I discovered I can unscrew the 1 1/4" adapter on its focuser. I then removed the .965" tube from the Tasco's focuser, and then screw the Vixen 1 1/4" adapter onto the Tasco. Now I have a 1 1/4" focuser on the Tasco! Although the focuser does have only 1 7/16" travel. Here is a picture of the set-up.
