yes, the feedback looks identical to the feedback before he changed his handle to the one he is using now. He changed it on Ebay also.

Well after enough presure the seller removed the listing. This was also being hotly debated on the Brandon Yahoo groups.

Late model Unitron 142. Appears to be excellent shape, pricey, no extras shown.

Older 6" Criterion Dynascope (?) on Ebay:

The base of the pier seems a bit unfamiliar for a Criterion product...

Price is really steep on that one too. Double the going rate.

I agree, asking price seems too high. Have noticed these types of high prices on instruments being met lately, however. If classic telescopes turn out to be the next big thing (relatively speaking), it could put these instruments out of reach for many of us.

That Zeiss sure is a temptation isn't it.
Doesn't matter for me I just bought this beauty. Yes it needs work but that's the fun part:
