My "new" Tasco 9VR 60mm f/5 doublet achromat arrived yesterday, and WOW is this a cool little scope! I had previously posted that it arrived here, in another Classic Telescopes forum thread, but so as not to hijack another member's thread any longer, I decided to start my own. The scope is really quite well built, and comes with a lot of nifty little accessories, kind of like the Taks do, with the difference that each one of those little accessories if made by Tak would have cost more than I paid for this entire scope package.
As it's raining all weekend, I won't be able to do any astronomy for a while, but I decided the least I could do was unpack the scope and set it up on my Manfrotto camera tripod on my screened porch and try to do some bird viewing. But alas, even the birds decided to stay out of the rain. At least I managed to snap some pics to share with everyone.
