Celestron Model Identification

I recently purchased a Celestron telescope at
a garage sale. It was cheap ($20) but the
eyepiece is missing, as well as any manuals or
product information. I'm trying to restore
it to working condition, but I haven't been able to even determine the model number. I should add
that I don't know much about telescopes.

The telescope is about 6" in diameter and roughly
19" long; the eyepiece opening is 3 cm. The seller said he purchased it to view Halley's comet so it's roughly 20 years old. The telescope came with a Velbon tripod (model
VGB-3C). As I noted, I can't find a model
number anywhere on the telescope.

Any help identifying the model or any other
information regarding this type of telescope
would be greatly appreciated.
