I've decided to buy a nexstar 8SE to satisfy my astronomy itch while I'm living overseas in china. My 12" dob didn't make the journey. I'm not in a huge rush, but would like to get it by summer so I can take it traveling.
Based on history, is there any pattern for these scopes to go on sale or have a rebate? Just curious. And thanks for all the great advice in the other posts. This has been a dream scope for me ever since I looked thru one in 1986. I'm excited to join the family.

Unfortunately, you just missed the usual Christmas season sale whereby you can often get it for $100 less. The only real pattern I've seen is the Christmas sale. They do occasionally have a rebate at other times, but that's much more rare and unpredicatable and not something you can count on.
