The Vixen mini 60S.  This is the pure Vixen version of the Tasco 9VR.  Mounted here on the Manon 600 tripod, configured as a true equatorial mount.

The Soligor 63mm.  This is really a nice telescope, and uncommon.  Only a few have surfaced on CN over the years, less than four that I can remember.

Yes, it is!  Chuck, are those the original bundled accessories?

 

My black-tube Monolux came with all of those -- except the YUGE H50 eyepiece.  Note the prism diagonal:  Both the Monolux & Stein Towa had that same N-S / Unitron style body with slotted eyepiece sleeve.

 

Is the Soligor's lens cell & shield one piece?

Yes, sir, JW, those are the original accessories.  I even have the manual for it.  I'll have to check it to answer your dewcap question.  I haven't had this scope out since last summer and don't recall.
