Quote:I think it is fake. there was a guy on the solar forum that got ripped off by sale-telescope.com While the sites don't look the same, they look similar and the company address is located in the same town in Indonesia.I believe the scam was they "accidentally" shipped the buyer 2 scopes, and realized it after it made it into customs, so they couldn't just cancel the order, however they managed to get a hold on it with the shipping company and demanded being paid for both telescopes before they would release the shipment. I don't recalled if the buyer paid, or realized at that point that they were a scam, but I think he was out over a grand.Almost everything in this hobby has a price set by the manufactures, so unless it's used, refurbished or a show room model, you shouldn't expect to see one seller offer something cheaper than another. Free shipping or rewards memberships or whatnot is another story.EDIT:here is the solar post I was referencing, again it's not star-telescope.com but they seem very similar.http://www.cloudynights.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php/Cat/1,2,3,4,5,8,9,10/Number/5984216/Main/5981819Jim

Quote:They are not a dealer of our, so they have zero access to Astro-Tech products. They would be a fake store, run away.
