That is an Optical "Techniques" Quantum 4. I find it hard to beliueve an owner would not know the telescope and post such an abbreviated description. I guess it is an estate sale at best.

Doubt this FREE massive-looking (ATM'ish) fork mount is still there, but somebody should check
Telescope , Barbecue grill, Antique Drawers (North Ft Collins)
http://fortcollins.c...2583197134.html


That's nearly the complete set-up: the scope, the barbie, the filing cabinet for the observation reports. Only a crate of beer is missing.

3" f/9.2 Seikanon. Probably on a yoke alt-az mount. You can find a pic of one by searching this forum.

Oops, you're right, the 4.5" appears to have been made at 900mm focal length, the 3" at 700mm. I've revised the original post.

Looks like an older Tasco 9TE-5 or maybe the elusive 9TE-0.

Yeah, but for the record it is NOT a Model 160. The model 160 has the weight-driven clock drive - not the electric drive. It DOES have the tripod spreader of the Model 160 that supports the weight driven clock drive. So it's sort of a crossbreed of a Model 152 with a Model 160 spreader.

The focuser is not an original Unitron. Also noticed some nylon screws for the guide scope vice the original metal locking screws. It has a Unihex A and B model but no Super Unihex and therefore no 60mm, 2" eyepiece.

Not sure about the guide scope. Would have to see close up pictures of the focuser, objective cell and ring supports that should be on the OTA.

The last three, 100% original Model 160s I have seen sold over the last few years have went for at least $8K.

Sure wasn't me.

While no longer buying telescopes, I am still interested in parts :lol: But while I was waiting for the pictures to download, someone else didn't!

New purchase (classic) telescope free since 03! That would be August, 03, 2011. Well, it's a start! :lol:
