I've found this "Antares astroscan" on a marketplace here in Italy. I think it's an original Astroscan.
1. What is the Serial Number of that telescope? When looking in through the front "window", you can see a colored sticker where the eyepiece focuser is.
2. Is the telescope "Made in USA" or "Made in Japan"? The carry strap has two bolt holes on the side; by looking underneath the strap's metal tabs, one can see the manufacturer location stamped into the side of the red ABS plastic.
3. Both of these items have an effect on the value and optical quality of the telescope. Please advise; thank you.
