Anyone use one of these? Preferably using 1.25" eps at more than 75x. Looking for something fairly small but decent optics. The center is what needs to be good, don't need really good at the edges. This is primarily for 50 yards and occasionally 100.

Better one is the LOMO Astele 70 if you can find one on the used market. There was also a C65 Mak by Celestron. It was the kind that has correct images built in (positive corrector).

There's a 65 for sale on eBay but they want more than a new C-90. Never seen a LOMO 70 for sale since they quite making them.
