This TAL 65 Russian made Newtonian is not what you might expect. It would seem to be a cheap toy but it is not. Most of the parts here are metal. This is built like a little Russian tank! The 65mm aperture 500mm focal length objective is well made with a very smooth surface for superb images. You don’t often find that in small telescopes like this. The mechanics on the mount are simply superlative. This is a well-made miniature full-featured equatorial mount with all the quality of a Losmandy in a tiny little package. This scope is a descendant of the TAL Alcor which is held in high regard by those who own one. This one is just as good and is on an equatorial mount to boot. The mount can easily be configured in Altaz mode if desired. The supplied eyepiece is a 15mm along with a barlow and spacer for two additional powers (30X, 90X, 130X), much like the Alcor. It has a simple but effective peep scope finder mounted on the OTA. The TAL65 OTA by itself sells for $200 on the TAL website without the mount. US sale only. PAYPAL only and I will handle the fee. Buyer pays shipping. Give me your zip code for a shipping estimate.
