Wanted to share with you this Lazlo offering from Goto. I would call this a Model 201 in the Goto lineup, but it is obviously later than the 56-59 printed literature which show a much simpler Alt Az configuration for both the 1XX series and the 2XX series scopes. It has the porro prism erector and a molded Goto logo on the side plate of the diagonal. The fact that there are spacers between the lens elements and the f/15 ratio makes it a Fraunhaufer design IMHO. It also has one of the convertible 10mm-20mm eyepieces with only a HM6mm added for fairly spartan range of magnification. The mount is Unitron-esque, and Goto may have felt that this was a viable way to go in evolution (and maybe a Nihon Seiko patent had run out). In any event there does appear to actually be a serial number here (391) besides the Laslo model number (451). Note the tapered focuser tube with a short .965 draw tube with split friction eyepiece holder. Looks like cost saving move to me. Looking forward to getting it out under the stars.
