Sears Discoverer equatorial refractor model 34451 new
      #5445728 - 09/28/12 07:34 PM

Anyone know the Sears Discoverer equatorial refractor, model 34451? One is for sale not so near me, but not so far from friends deserving of a visit. Looks to be complete. Cardboard box with full Styrofoam inserts and white tube suggest quite a late model; would that mean its not as good as an older powder blue tube? Looking at the reflex finder, I suspect it is a Towa. Did any manufacturer other that Towa use that design? (Tanzutsu built a reflex scope, but at a steeper angle with a chunkier eyepiece.) An asking price of $75 brings it home.

As far as I know only Towa did that design but that could be debateable. I have one of those that is a Bushnell that has a circle T. I like it just because it has that reflex finder, something different. It should be the same as the Jason 313 I believe. I would try and talk him down some and go for it.
