Quote:Seeing that shipping wise I appear to be on the far side of the moon, I can only hope this does not sour everyone into not shipping. I can not count the number of times I had to assure the seller I was not scamming. I have bought everything from a large SCT to minor accessories through here, and all I can say is that this should be the very small minority that would be trying this. My location in Canada is off the beaten track and there are little if any choices in retailers, so the used market is a great way to buy gear, and for the most part I do it sight unseen, and depend on the seller to represent themselves fairly.

Quote:Just this last 10 days or so lots of high end cameras and even a telescope or two listed in London UK (but check seller's other items and see that most other items are in the USA and $30 tops). All are buy it now for "ONLY 2600 USD" (like we americans call our currency USD...) and "don't contact me through ebay, "contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org"Buyer... and Seller! beware!

George You know you're getting on when the equipment you farmed with is showing up as suburban lawn ornaments.
Chris Small telescopes, some medium size, a smattering of eyepieces and filters. The human brain-a 3 pound, 30 watt, self-programming supercomputer that can be mass produced by unskilled labor. Member IDA
