    But if this is the only picture available,
    I would request more pictures, before considering buying it.
    The set seems to be full, there is an eyepiece filter,
    a magnifying glass and two adjusting tools,
    but I would look at the other side, mirrors and filters
    before considering it.
    
    Alex.
