76.2mm x 1200mm telescope. Made by Royal Astro for Tasco in 1962. Outstanding optics. Excellent condition. I've read if the optics were made today the tube assembly alone would be $1000. Mount mechanism was stiff when I got it, I lubricated it and it moves good now, Could probably use a disassembly and greasing. Uses .965 eyepieces, has 3 and a 2x barlow and an image inverter for terrestrial viewing. I will include an adapter for 1 1/4" eyepieces but no eyepieces. Original finger jointed wood box/case. Seems to have everything except paperwork and I found that on the internet. Last one of these scopes I found online sold for $510. My price, $450. Thanks.
