Very nice. I've never owned one with that 'flip-finder' system, but I guess this is from the early 80's. Its a fine scope that a youngster (did I just say 'youngster'?!?) can use for a long time.

Hi Bruce,

When entering a URL, use the UBB code console. Click on "URL" and a pop-up box will come up asking you to input the target URL. Paste your URL into the box and click OK. Another pop-up box will come up and ask for the title of the link (this is what other's see and click on), and then put in anything you want like "Sears Scope" ...

:)

To be completely honest, I only figured this out myself about 2 months ago!

Bruce, I have that same scope under the Tasco name. It actually is really cool. That finder works great! You'll find it has a flip mirror mechanism that is so overbuilt it's rediculous. The obtics are excellent too, of course the eyepieces are lousy.
