Quote:Is the RG 20mm Meade WA a collector item ? That is the question. If yes having the box may increase the value of both. An empty green box for the Nagler 11mm T1 was sold 50$ on Ebay !

“I am the only person to ever ace a 1951 USAF resolution test. My 'to observe' list says 'done'. I do not use charts or atlases when I starhop; men do not use maps. One of my sketches won an SBIG deep sky imaging contest. I am the life of star parties I have never attended. I never say anything looks like a faint fuzzy - not even a faint fuzzy. Pilots aim green laser pointers at me. Don Pensack proofreads my CN forum posts.” - The Most Interesting Astronomer in the Universe
Quote:Well at least judging from the pics there are no clouds in the box. Perhaps onlly new stuff comes with free clouds.

Quote:Vintage clouds are extremely rare and hard to find. You're lucky indeed if you ever find one NIB or NOS. I once saw a box of vintage clouds sell for over $1000 on EBay! (Buyer was from a drought stricken region in Southern California.)You really have to be careful with vintage clouds though, you just never know where they come from. They could be left over from a tornado or hurricane or something.
Quote:The vintage clouds could be an issue. i was planning on buying some off ebay some time ago to go with a vintage Zeiss Telementor then I noticed the seller was from Chernobyl so I dropped out.You have to watch yourself on ebay. You think your getting a bargain but sellers arent always honest about stuff like clouds.
Quote:this thread is hysterical !
Quote:I'd say it's worth at least $9.00, but the box market is hot so it might hit $9.25.
