Found this about an hour north of me. A 6" Newtonian telescope, made by the Criterion company in the early 70s. Still in fantastic condition, even the optical surfaces were not trashed as they usually are with older telescopes. The motor drive still works perfectly. I used to drool over the ads for this scope when I was young. As near as I can tell, I'm the third owner. The person I got it from brought it from North Carolina, and said they got it from an uncle who was the original owner.
