Here is what the sales ad said about this Telescope.

This is large aperture reflector. Ideal for an introduction to serious high-power viewing. 6 inch aperture, as a result, this scope packs a serious high-power punch, with magnification up to 430*making it ideal for lunar and planetary observation. You can see outstanding detail when viewing the moon you'll spot the Rings of Saturn and the Moons of Jupiter. Included is an adjustable full-sized aluminium tripod with a built-in accessory tray. This scope has an Equatorial Mount, so it can be polar aligned to track the movements of stars as they parade across the night sky.

Use the declination circle, hour circle and latitude scale to quickly locate any celestial body. Thanks to precision worm gears and a substantial counter weight, the telescope can be balanced so that the slightest finger touch turn of the flexi cables will move the telescope with a smooth, steady motion. Two 1. 25 diameter Plossl eyepieces (25mm& 6. 5mm) and a Barlow 2* lens, a 1. 5* Erecting lens, moon filter, are included. This has a mount for CD tracking.

Other than the above infor and atatched pics, I don't know much about it and probably wont be able to answer any technical questions. But happy for anyone to come and check out before bidding.

Prefer pick up as its dam big even when tripod legs are retracted.
