Yesterday locally I purchased this off of Facebook Marketplace. I was only buying it for the wooden tripod legs. But I took a look thru it with the 0.965 25mm Kellner that was included & it was extremely sharp on trees & house chimney & no CA.  

This scope is hefty for it weights more than my Celestron 102mm Omni f/6.5 Altazimuth refractor. I always keep my equatorial refractors in altazimuth mode. The only thing I don't like it doesn't have hinged tube rings for balancing. I would like to buy a hybrid star diagonal to use my 1.25" eyepieces. Anyone still using one of these & know the focal length?
