Astrophysics 6 f12 Superplanetary on Losmandy [Re: bremms]

The same scam for the subject scope popped up again on e-bay, which I again reported along with multiple high priced guitars listed by the seller. I was puzzled that some of the sellers other listings seemed legit, and the fake auctions didn't have the same seller as when last listed.

However, for the first time the seller replied to my feedback on the fake items. They replied that their ebay account had been hacked maliciously by a person using the auctions to rip people off, that the current auctions in their ebay account were fake and did not really exist. Explains a lot.

Astro Royal Telescope R-73, d:76mm, f:1400mm [Re: Marc-Andre]
      #5739599 - 03/17/13 08:36 PM

Here is the link: On Ebay

Buy it now at $890 ?? I'd like to have one if only because of the great focuser! The focuser reminds me of Captain Nemo.

Now for something completely different...
My ebay identity is "Penny, get your own wifi." That's a joke only watchers of The Bigbangtheorey will appreciate.
On the other hand, I'm thinking of putting my CN moniker,
"Littlegreenman" up for sale. Oops! Guess I can't say that on this forum . I know! I'll auction it off on Astromart!

OKAAAY Sheldon... love it

Now for something completely different...

WOW! I have the short 910mm fl version of this scope and it is very fine optically and mechanically. Capt. Nemo huh, I thought it was more Cap'n Crunch.

Somebody please make this one go away... pleeeze... before I do.

THANK YOU! to whom ever stepped up! This should be a classic to be proud of forever. 76 X 1400 awesome. The mount is the same as supplied with the 80 X 910 and the 90 X 1400 Royal Astro scopes. Way more than adequate for the 80 X 910, but kinda jiggly for the 90 X 1400. I'm guessing just right for this scope!

I was just returning to hit the BIN and it was gone. I hope it was someone here. I'd love to vicariously enjoy first light. Good bidding!

I wish. I sorta love and sorta hate the sweaty buyer's remorse oh what have I done now thing but somebody else just got a lot of classic rarity tonight. That is a beautiful scope at what I would consider an easy price to live with. Nice!

Betcha have submarine too... when I was 13 went with my best friend to visit his uncle. He had one of those. He also had a 5 inch Unicorn in a housetop roll off... Had a plane... Didn't have a cool car. I really liked that scope with the big wheel.
He had it in his library. Didn't get to look through the Unitron, it was too cloudy. Did get a ride in the plane.

Spotted this yesterday. Looks in good shape. Looked a comet Haley in Baltimore doing outreach with one of these and a Nagler 13mm T1. Belonged to a good friend, nice memory.

I'm full up. I'm just getting a few EP's right now. My funds and time are going to get my Lotus ready for a track day. Great one for a Sears collection! Cmon' You sears scope people! Make an Offer.
I'd rather a nice Cave if I was getting anything right now.

Very cool Allan. When I was a kid my friend (actually his grandpa who more,or less gave them to him) had a pair of vintage 1950s 15x70 Zeiss binoculars and a heave photo tripod to mount them on. They were amazing! And they seemed enormous at the time.
