This is the complete info about the telescope for sale:

Here is a high quality Telescope. Cost approx, $600.00 new. Has many optic lenses for various planetary magnifications. This thing is really awesone. Now you can see the man in the moon and the Pyrimids on Mars (ha ha joking).
Anyway, I'm looking to trade this for a 50 to 65 in or there abouts, big screen HDTV or plazma. Or sell for asking $300.00
Has original manuals. Many micor setting. Believe me, it's a high quality item.
I live in the Zanesville area.

Which fish is a telescope that looks like a comet?

(I am not the seller of the fish.)

Is this a common aquarium term?

Here's another ad that turned up when the key word 'telescope' was entered, this time featuring R2D2 from Star Wars:

Of course, $200 went a lot further in 1969.

Ok, maybe not jail, how about house arrest. Yeah $200 would have went a lot further then, but still a great find.

This particular ad ranks up there as among the best. "PAY FOR YOUR PURCHASES" is what it should be titled.

On the Wilmington, North Carolina Craigslist.

P.S.--I hope they catch the scoundrel!

Sorta fits with this thread....

Did you ever notice that you only get responses to about 1/2 your emails to a CL seller? They list a telescope, it is within driving distance of my house, I actually ask real questions (not, "I want to buy your item") and never get a response. Not even a "sorry it is sold". Just venting - thanks.

That happened to me this week. I emailed the seller, the scope is maybe 3 miles from my house, a mile from my route to work, and it took a day to get a response. The seller agreed that after work would probably be best, and seeing it would be the best way to learn about it. But other than telling me what major intersection it's near, he hasn't said anything about how to contact him or when we might meet.

It's a rusty old Newt, so I think I'll just let it go, on the gamble that none of it is especially collectible.

-Tim.

:foreheadslap:

I'd never pay $1,000 for that refractor when I can spend "only" $400 for this reflector:
http://modesto.craig...2064655802.html

I mean, c'mon: it's totally worth it because the seller assures me that the color is "totally auesome."

Thanks for the heads up Nave! Just bought it! Should be able to get it for under $600 after the UPS ship and pack fees.
