It says 82 foot focal length but i'm sure they mean 82 inches which would be F7.3. It will need a long tube at 2.1 metres focal length. If someone wants a longish newtonian it could be a nice buy if it goes for £40 like the estimate. I see that it also has a flat which is not stored very well and some scuffing on the main mirror surface. I suspect it will go for substantially more. I bet Philjay will know more.

 

Here's some info on Cox, Hargreaves & Thompson Ltd...
