My First Scope

This piece of history has been hiding in my parent's basement for nearly 20 years. I decided to open the box and present it for whomever to see. The views through it are not good anymore, too much fungus on the glass.

The scope is a Jason Empire StarSearch 303. It has a 50mm objective and is 625mm in focal length. This makes it an F12 scope. With it, I used to view Mars, the Moon and even caught Halley's Comet back in 1986.
