Stands about 43" tall when level on the tripod.

The original shipping box is included. Bears a shipping date of "12/24/35".
I've taken the telescope out and can confirm that it works great! Two of the lenses are quite clear when looking at the moon. One of them is a bit scratchy but still gets the job done. You do get a very good picture of the full moon when it's available. I didn't try to find any planets but I'm sure you can.
I believe this may be the approximate power telescope that Galileo used (read that somewhere).
It is a very nice piece. Makes for a striking display and the bonus is, you can actually use it!
I'm sure it will make a fantastic addition to any collection.
