A collector's item no doubt. PRINZ were mass-produced 'scopes and the quality varied from one to the other.
I once had a new PRINZ 3-inch/f.16 refractor that gave good definition. The eyepieces were simple Huygenians, handy for projecting the Sun.

Really like the cat photograph! And to ensure that this posting is astronomical...there used to be a constellation "Felis - the Cat", which was expunged later , with the stars now in the tail of Hydra, I hope that the water snake did not swallow the cat!. However there is still some felines in the sky...Leo, Leo Minor and Lynx. Regards maf.
