Hi All,

For sale is a Tasco No. 19T Observatory Self-Storing Telescope set, from the early 70's, I think. 60mm objective, 800mm focal length, the objective glass is in beautiful condition. You don't see these come up for sale very often. This set is complete except for the instruction manual, and it is missing the infamous illuminated pen accessory. This set is really neat. Everything including the telescope OTA fits inside the pier tube and can then be easily carried to observing site. The accessories fit inside a plastic container that also slips into the pier tube.

Cosmetically, it is in very good to excellent condition, the flat black pier tube and legs could use a fresh coat of paint. The original box however, is only in fair condition, the box is sturdy, but the lid with all the graphics is covered all over with clear packing tape, but still sturdy and useable. Included is a very early Rand McNally Moon map, the roman numeral date lists 1958...

Here is a list of 0.965" accessories included with the set (see picture):

sun projection screen and arm
2x barlow
6-18mm zoom eyepiece (KD optic house mark)
4mm Ortho Tasco eyepiece
H 23mm eyepiece (for use alone or with the zoom accessory)
Moon filter
Sun Filter
accessory tray
diagonal (absolutely the beefiest 0.965" diagonal I've ever owned)
plastic accessory container

Only $300 for this rare Tasco scope set, buyer pays shipping, or I am willing to drive ~100 mile radius from Knoxville, TN to meet (for gas $$), paypal add 2.9% fee, I will take money order or personal check (hold time to clear).

Thanks for looking and Best Regards,


  • Condition Very Good
  • Location Knoxville, TN
