The photos in the link you posted show some subtle differences, so this may be an improved version of what is marketed by Konus. The Bosma site shows model 100102 as being close to what your photo shows.

Not involved in any commercial link. But I own a 102-1000 refractor scope and it is OK. see the mars forum for some observations from me and if CN will publish my review for the refractor.
A little heavy but performing honnestly on the planet.
For me the mak is not a konus, the tube is almost 450-500mm lenght which is a good thing with a primary ratio of 3 minimum. Less aberration.
If it is as of the same level as my refractor for the quality it shall be a good OTA, not perfect but something like good. Expected obstruction 0.36-0.38.
Never has in my hand but looks on better design dimensions.
To be followed with review owners.
