They call it a 60 mm, but when you look on the logo tag, its a 50mm F11.
This looks identical to the table top "Jupiter" 50mm I got a while back , down to the Peepsight finder and probably-integral prism diagonal that screws into the end of the draw-tube.
I don't know if the Pentax name puts any better optics , but for a little scope, it's a fine view, and far more usable than more complicated altaz mounts and squinty 24mm glass finders...
Turned mine into a fine little solar scope and having a lot of fun with it...need a few more sunspots, tho.

I email her and she says it also has a sun eyepiece not just the screw in filter.
