It looks like an old Skyscope from the 1950s that's been repaired by a chimpanze. :smash:

Yup, looks like an ol' SkyScope that's been painted white.
IIRC, they originally had black tubes.
3.5" f/10 primary mirror.
Looks like the back end has taken a bash. :doah:
Lots of brass fittings... that "mounting" is somethin' else, huh? :p

The "Buy It Now" price seems rather ambitious! :lol:

Maybe the BIN is a typo and it's actually $3.99. Not even sure I'd want it. Looks like it's been thru the mill. I'd better check the brass salvage prices first, before i say anymore! :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin:Mike

This is a case for "the little scope that never could"
It's crying for someone to save me. Isn't that what we do here on Classic telescopes is save scopes from the trash can?

To put it mildly.

Looks like the seller is trying to observe some southern hemisphere objects!
