I would buy it if it had a 1.25" focuser.

nice scope.  This could be a sharp fix up for both at and through.

 

The RA housing is one of the longer castings. There were quite a few factory lengths. This one doesn't look like it will take a drive due to lack of shaft extension.

The RA shafts are not threaded for extensions. I've only seen those on the DEC shaft for the weights.

Better photos now in this ad.

 

Florida, 2 for 1 package: The headline scope is an Orion (Synta) 120mm f8.3 achromat, but the seller is throwing in what looks like an early Tasco 60x1000:

Why is it half the time in CL ads Newts are pointed at the ground?

I think it's just a matter that the people haven't a clue on how to use it.
