Obviously, I did take the lens caps off when I was trying to use it, they're just on now as it's sitting in the spare room and knowing my luck
something would happen to it if I'd forgotten!!
If you need any more info I'll try and get it tomorrow. There isn't a serial number that I can see. The viewing is 1.5x and there are 3 lenses that
attach, but I can't remember what they say. I probs shudda checked the magnification and stuff as well but I forgot. It's not great though.
Reflecting mirror diameter 76mm
Focal Length 700mm
31.7mm diameter eyepiece – 20mm, 12.5mm,6mm
erecting eyepiece 1.5x
finderscope 5x 24mm
And to be honest, the thing has terrible
reviews where ever I look online. Unfortunate, but my mam won't buy another, proper one for my dad,
and my dad won't buy one. I think my grandad got it from a car boot sale sometime years ago. We should've asked him how to set it up properly before
he passed, to be honest, but I don't think anyone ever bothered.
He definitely had it working though, so I know I must be doing something
wrong with it coz I should at least be able to see the moon. Really
sucks being a chemist in a family of engineers...
