T are 3 original scribe marks showing the focusing range. This telescope has good optics and provides a surprizingly clear, magnified image. T are a couple of minor specks in the field of view which might be dust on the lenses. It measures 11 1/2 inches closed and 17 inches fully extended. It is in good overall condition, definitely shows actual use, but no abuse. The main lens is in nice condition with no chips or cracks.
