HI:

I saw this interesting red reflector on the LA Craigslist. The pier mount suggests that it is 60's-70's vintage and the red suggests Tasco. Aperture looks to be small, maybe 3 inch.

Any ideas what it is??

It's a fork mounted Alt-Az on a pier. The OTA reminds me of a Tasco 3" reflector I am selling on AM right now. But I cannot post a link to it here.

Regards and clear skies,

Secretly we know Clint is dying to trade his 4" Unitron for it! He's just downplaying it so he can swoop in for the "kill"! :grin: :grin: :grin: :grin: Mike
