Previously owned/used scopes

Bushnell 76mm Newtonian
Focal length 700mm
It was my first astro scope. I spent very nice time with it.

150mm Newtonian
Focal length 1000mm
This scope was my second scope. Because of very poor quality (even worse than 76mm Bushnell!) I had to return it to seller.

263mm Dobsonian
Focal length 1250mm
While my 150mm Newtonian was reclaimed, seller borrowed me this scope. Its optical quality was also poor.
