I have ask this before and never really found my answer. This is a Celestron 6" Short tube reflector. It has a built in barlow or some kind of glass between the secondary and the primary. I seen a manual on a C150-ND but it say's it is a f5 and tube length of 14". This scope say's f7 and tube length is almost 18". Just the tube only is 17 7/8+/- a 32 of an inch. I don't know were else to turn. Did Celestron just change the scope from f5 to f7? I see articles on the net about it but, when checking they all seem to point to the f5?

Can you post some pics?  That might help us or trigger someone's memory.

Looks like the Chinese version of the Celestron 150HD..  At the time Celestron called the HD a hybrid.  I believe Ed Ting reviewed it.   The HD was probably one of the better Jones-Birds.

I hope it's nothing like the Cometron Jr i had back in 1986 that would never come to focus.
