My new Tasco 'Novice' 60mm. It was given to me.I just love the color.
I'm not sure how old it is, these 60mm Tasco's are pretty timeless.
I'm very surprised to see it has a coated air-spaced objective and 3 spacers rather than a ring spacer.
You can see right now it's multi-coated ! and sadly I think I made a family of spiders homeless
I have been given/bought a few modern Tasco scopes over the last 10 years or so, they're getting better all the time! the novice is fairly recent.
i've had the Galaxsee, Luminova, and Novice. The galaxsee is okay the latter pair are better(just) but still not at Japan standards. Free is the best price for any scope and thats what i charge when i pass them on.
They're a cheap multicoated achro, the Luminova takes 1.25" accessories, other than the "average" mounts they're not a bad starter scope. Great find.
Sad for the spiders though, they lost a planetarium
