Andra, hello, I am also Italian, I live in L’Aquila. That must be a mid-19th century telescope. Nothing exceptional: lactescence (spherical aberration), chromaticism, coma. If you want to show it off in your living room (after you’ve cleaned it up a bit, of course) it might do. However, if you plan to observe the sky with it, then I recommend using that money to spend a nice evening in a restaurant with a pretty girl. Maybe I’m wrong, but I remember my mother always telling me: dear son, old stuff dies in the house of fools.
