That's a nice looking scope with good optics from the era when Tasco was branded onto some high quality glass. The price might seem steep to some, but consider what a comparable-sized Unitron costs. I've heard some claim that these older Tascos had very sharp optics and virtually no CA.

Regards,

I had my 10TE out last night...same scope as the 15TE but without the motorized drives. While observing the Lunar terminator, CA was not apparrent at 100x, but was beginning to show at 150x. BUT..I'm not complaining. It is optically a nice scope. The tripod is a little on the shaky side, though.
