Super gorgeous classic refractor from the early 1960's. I know they are all gorgeous but this is just beautiful! Excellent glass, and the paint/repaint is professional automotive shop (2008) exquisite! Wood tripod legs are of the split wood kind which are in my Nippon Kogaku experience rare. Case is excellent. Focus is smooth and yes those knobs are white and nylonesque. Remember the "Graduate" scene, Mr. McGuire... "One word, are you listening? Plastics. There is a great future in plastics. Will you think about it?" Anyway think about it.

One photo is included to reference the size of the OTA as compared to an average Japanese 60mm refractor of similar vintage.

Kit includes 4 Nippon Kogaku eps... 5mm, 9mm, 12.5mm, and 18mm, star diagonal, poro prism, sun projection system, finder has no crosshairs.

Shipping would entail 3 cartons to maximize a safe landing... mount, tripod legs, and telescope in cabinet. If you are truly interested in bringing this sweetheart home I'll work out a best estimate of dimension and weight. Actual shipping cost will be paid by buyer. Or come and get it and avoid the shipping expense.

Local pick-up $850. Well packed for shipping $900.
