I have a 80mm f/12.5 Goto refractor OTA. I have had this telescope for a number of years and have always been impressed with it optical performance. The telescope is very well built and has the finest 30mm finder I have ever used. What is interesting is the lens cell states it is a semi-apochromat. I am not sure of this telescopes vintage. The first photo shows the the lens/cell. The second the OTA next to a 60mm Unitron, the last the focuser.
