4.5 inch Tasco
4.5 inch Tasco circa 1969
this was my third scope after a pair of 60mm and a 50mm refractors.
I was able to observe all 110 of the Messier objects with this scope.
Photography was limited to the moon and planets through the scope and some piggyback telephoto deep sky work.
Also checkout that crazy windup clock drive.
