1200 power scope? I don't have a big enough mount, or tall enough ladder.

Good deal, but twice what I paid for my Vega.

Which ad read: "8" telescope--$200."

I remember when you posted a picture of that Mak-Newt a long time ago bierbelly. You should be put in jail for stealing.

That was an exceptional find. I love the appearance of that scope. Great find.

This is the complete info about the telescope for sale:

Here is a high quality Telescope. Cost approx, $600.00 new. Has many optic lenses for various planetary magnifications. This thing is really awesone. Now you can see the man in the moon and the Pyrimids on Mars (ha ha joking).
Anyway, I'm looking to trade this for a 50 to 65 in or there abouts, big screen HDTV or plazma. Or sell for asking $300.00
Has original manuals. Many micor setting. Believe me, it's a high quality item.
I live in the Zanesville area.

Which fish is a telescope that looks like a comet?

http://newlondon.craigslist.org/for/2060462073.html
(I am not the seller of the fish.)

Is this a common aquarium term?

Here's another ad that turned up when the key word 'telescope' was entered, this time featuring R2D2 from Star Wars:

(I am not the seller of the R2D2 robot.)

Of course, $200 went a lot further in 1969.

Ok, maybe not jail, how about house arrest. Yeah $200 would have went a lot further then, but still a great find.
