Hi All

A buddy kindly gave me this scope they picked up for a few penny's at a boot sale.

It has no markings on but I think it's an old Tasco, what do you reckon?

It has a neat little sliding brass eyepiece cover.

And a little cardboard tube.

Ps I'm going to take it to a dark sky site so it can really stretch its legs for first light.:)
