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.

It will be the smallest overpayment you've made for a telescope yet.

Maybe he should try a third time. I would strongly suggest a photograph or brand name. This seller needs more "pertinent" information!

I thought that was just a misspelling of "astronomy", until I clicked on the link to the ad, and there was a picture of two actual astrology books!

If it's taken out of the box, assembled and the eyepiece is even looked at it's used. Iguess it depends on your definition of "used" Bill.....I mean Preston. :grin: :grin:Mike
