This telescope is actually my first "real" scope. I purchased it in 1972 at the ripe old age of 13, using money I earned from mowing lawns. It is a 6" f/10 Optical Craftsman reflector (company long since out of business) with superb optics. The mirror was ground to 1/25 wave (1/12 wavefront). It yields wonderful images!
The solar filter is a glass Bausch and Lomb which I purchased for $25 at the astronomy "swap meet" at the Riverside Telescope Maker's Conference in 1986. It is a neutral density filter, giving wonderful - natural yellow - images. So what that it's an 8" filter. I just made an adapter to put it on my 6" scope! This scope is still in good working order - except for the clock drive.
