Quote:The more we talk about these old telescopes here on CN the more hits Google gets when someone searches for information on that old scope they have in their basement before they put it up for sale. Seller discovers its collectibility and lists the item at a high price. WE are responsible!

Seller discovers its collectibility and lists the item at a high price. WE are responsible! I'm an example of that - found CN from googling my Cave while fixing it up. Not that I want to sell it, but I had a good idea of relative condition and value with an hour or so of reading. Some people will wind up using the scopes, so there's an upside!

Telescopes are instruments of hope and faith. Hope that a better, clearer and brighter universe can be observed. Faith that we can bring these discoveries back to our small planet and create positive changes for all of it's inhabitants.

Quote: Ebay... do not determine what the top price is you are willing to pay for the scope. Rather, determine what is the price you can walk away from the sale with no regrets. That gets rid of the "what ifs" and doubts...
Quote:Out of curiosity, how or what do members of this great forum use to determine the price when selling one of their classics?
