Dave has dropped the price on that awesome Mogey 3" EQ kit --> https://www.cloudyni...3-inch-reduced/
Mine never had a finder, and was on some traditional style alt/az mount of heavy-duty brass (the "eye" bracket on the OTA was 3x thicker than the others I've seen). Dave made this one a beautiful display AND a fully functioning long refractor. (Check my Mogey 3 Jupiter photos for a hint of what these antiques can show you.) Stars colors aren't natural, but the colors are bright & vivid, and the views of open clusters are very good, too -- those pinpoints are as tiny as in any other well-made refractor.
