Woodland Hills School Dist. Refractor - Al-Paslow
The telescope moves freely about both RA and Decl. axises and is quite comfortable to move by hand. The telescope tube also tapers from larger (at the main lens) to smaller at the observers end. This of course is the design used in older refractors and helps off set the balence of the scope at the tail end for finders and other accessories. (Dave Smith and Jayson Kowinsky pictured.)
