Hi, can someone help me identify this 4.5” reflector OTA?  I don’t have any information on it just this picture.  Sorry I have no focal length or OTA tube length.

 

Thanks,

 

Robb

114mm x 1000 Bird-Jones with a plastic focuser, possibly 0.965". I'd avoid

You sure of the 4.5"? Can't find it in the catalog. There was a Meade Schmidt-Newton 6". Does it have a corrector plate (glas) up front?
