Dave, as you can see from all the replies, this place is very likely to be a rip-off! Better to scour the CN classifieds, and S&S fora for deals, as well as Astrom*** (That-Site-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named!). Using these sources you will at least have half a chance at possibly getting a bargain on a decent scope without losing your shirt!




As I've posted before, there is absolutely nothing to be feared by mentioning Astromart. See! Astromart. I said it again. There are no rules - stated nor implied - regarding mentioning Astromart. It most definitely is not the "Site-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named!" I'll say it again: Astromart.




Now you've done it!!!!

You must now either go back and deliver unto them an shrubbery (cut down... using an herring...), or utter "The-Phrase-Which-Must-Not-Be-Uttered-Or-Spoken-Or-WHispered-Or-Mumbled" unto them (unto their ear(s)... either one will do... or all of their ears... collectively... emphasizing the capitalized letters in each word... dis-TINCT-ly) that they may then be so pain-ed, so distrac-ted, that they then forget (for an season) your having mentioned previously "That-Site-Which-Must-Not-Be-Named" that you may then escape (for an season) the consequences of having utter-ed so vile a thing as you did utter.


ASTROMART!!!

(Oh drat! Where in blazes did I put that herring?!)

Or ultra-high-powered laser range-finding sword sites. Hey, can we use those for telescopes?

Yea, but a big dob is a pretty heavy light saber handle.......now the ETX80 model light sabre is very easily weilded....it's pretty underpowered though, kneepads provide adequate protection from it......

Well I zoomed in with Google maps satellite image, and I think I can see a brand new Astro-Physics mount sitting on the clearance rack outside the building! Please wait while I mail them an envelope stuffed with $100 bills. I think they'll accept it in lieu of wire transfer.

Do you think this one would be OK as a starter AP scope for my light polluted suburb? Their price looks cheap enough, isn't it?
