It is a shame!  Soligor camera stuff gets good reviews.

Yep. Back in the 70s, I had a nice Soligor telephoto lens for my Miranda 35mm SLR.

Very, very bad.  Both of us replaced the objective with a RAO 60/1000.  The rest of the scope is excellent - very much like an early Unitron.

 

Original objective DPAC:

With the RAO objective, it's a great performer.

The original objective really stigmatized this scope for a period of time. It took some time to get over it, but given it's rarity, it's good looks, the replacement RAO objective, and the rest of the build quality now makes it a prized possession.
