"Was owned by a Texas University"       Actually, no.  The listing says he 'thinks' it was, and ONLY because of a 'sticker' or 'decal' on it.  Don't be fooled by stuff like that!  That listing has been around for close to 2 YEARS, in one form or another.  There IS a reason (or 2, or 3) why it still hasn't sold.

Surprisingly the focussing mount is almost a third of the way down the tube.

Stevegeo, did you buy this scope?  If so, PM me and I will unlock the thread.  Otherwise it was already posted in the Ads thread.
