click to return3" REFRACTOR ON EQUATORIAL MOUNT

 

This is the first telescope I obtained, and I have had a lot of use out of it. It is big enough to give nice views of planets, and yet small enough to pick up and take out just for a few minutes. It probably gets used the most of any of my scopes. It was kind of army green, or close to it, and all scratched up, so I painted it a light blue.
