The Barska 15-45x50 Anchormaster Spyscope Telescope is an elegant all brass telescope with a magnificent full length real mahogany adjustable floor tripod. The brass arc mount is attached to the optical tube and the thumb-screw tripod fittings and support tray are also brass, adding a sparkling highlight to an already stunning room enhancement. Don't think that it's all show. The fully functional optical tube has a reasonable aperture of 50 mm and the magnification capability is a zoom 15-45x. It is as functional as it is beautiful to look at. This is a precision-made, high quality brass optical product that makes a stunning addition to any decor. Nothing more than classical elegance and traditional sophistication.
