After much searching, I found an Astroscan for a reasonable price. I shall post a photo of her and her telescope after she gets it. Gotta give it a quick cleaning and check alignment, which I expect to be OK since I actually rehabbed this very scope about a decade ago. The owner no longer used it, and was willing to part with it for a reasonable price.

Luna is the 7 year old daughter of a neighbor.

I may have done that when I last rehabbed it. SN 16251. What year is this model?
