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.

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!

Another one them "floor" models. Maybe they used it to check whether the home improvement ferry had installed any baseboards or tile yet. :grin:Mike

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
