Garage sale Stellar branded Towa 60mm. Old enough to have metal focuser knobs, a finder with a coated, unobstructed doublet, aluminum lens cell, and a 2 element eyepiece, a really nice diagonal, and a wood box, but new enough to come with a 20mm huygens instead of the AH and to be packaged with partial styrofoam inserts. All four objective surfaces appear coated, the cell and shade are both aluminum and thread on. The mount and tripod are like new and seem reasonably functional. The focuser has an internal rack which isn't making contact with the pinion. Luckily they also had a Meade 60mm f5.9 with a couple of wide angle MA eyepieces. Swapped focusers and collimation is good, plus there's no need for a hybrid diagonal now. It seems like a hodgepodge of nice basic components with some ugly cost cutting in the accessories. The eyepieces, barlow, and image erector are of the throw-away variety. JTII sticker looks like the 69-70 version.
Daytime images are sharp with good contrast, less fogging from internal reflections than with my 60s with only a coated first surface.
Edit - I'm assuming it's going to be a killer: after being clear all day, just as it started getting dark, a thunderstorm rolled through.
