Well, it looks like the post office lost the Celestron 80mm OTA I recently bought on eBay. They are promising a report by tomorrow. Tracking shows that it pretty much dropped off the face of the earth after leaving New York last week. The seller is furious with the post office. He's pledged a full refund if it's really lost, wants to keep his 100% rating, but didn't insure the package so it will be a loss for him. Live and learn!
I once waited 19 days for a telescope to get to me from the east coast, via USPS, but in that case, there was a tracking record of it touring the entire east and deep south before eventually heading west. In the case of the Celestron OTA, it leaves NY on the 14th and no tracking updates afterwards.
