I was surprised the first time i bid in an Amart auction. Thinking i had won a good deal right at the end, the bidding continued. They run it just like a live in person auction. As long as someone will bid within a reasonable time it goes on and on. It never stopped till it was three times my bid. Items will seek their value, in the begining or in the end.

That is correct Gerald. Items will find their value sooner or later. Does not matter where the bidding begins. I have been at plenty of auctions where I found something I really wanted. If you let the bidding start low then a bunch of people get on board and it might get crazy with a bidding frenzy. With a nice high bid that is still half of what it is worth you get rid of those bottom feeders real fast and get it over with.

I never got a reply when I asked if it was still for sale. At $900 how could you pass it up.

One of you should buy this scope. For only $300 and it is really nice and complete. Sanders sells nice stuff. Seriously, someone here should buy this scope. A great deal. They also have fantastic optics. I had one years ago.

I was wondering if or when this would get posted. I've got an idea, let's bump up the bid by $500.00 increments within the first day of a nine day auction. I cannot understand some peoples auction strategy. If two people had not started a bidding war at the beginning of the auction the bid now would probably be less than a third of what it now is.




I've always enjoyed live auctions, much more so than the online stuff. I'm rather good at auctions and at watching my limits. I rarely bid early.

In the case of the Unitron, I figured what the heck. Do you really think this early pricing will have any bearing on the likely substantial final bid? Doubtfull. Also doubtfull that I'll get it. I'd be shocked if the bidding stops anywhere near my limit. If I did get it, I'd promptly sell my 150.

Somebody really ought to. They are great scopes. The optics are quite good, the out is nice, the color scheme quite tasteful. And this one is mint. The case is in great condition and it even has the tray lamp. If I didn't already have one like it, I'd buy it myself. It is a very good price considering what you are getting. So somebody: Get it already!

That Vixen Cometron has been listed for sale off & on a long time - since early summer, I would guess. If my garage weren't already a mess of stuff and assorted telescopes, I'd cross the necessary bridge and go retrieve it.

But I'm not gonna.

'cause I've learned "restraint."

Even if my wife insists otherwise....

As a newbie it would be helpful to me, if no one else, to change the title when listing new things. The century old chemist has little to do with a scope on SF CL for example, well maybe he does but you get the idea.
Thanks,
Ron



Well I see that didn't last long!
It does make it hard to follow a thread when you are reading about one scope and suddenly someone uses the Quick Reply to respond to a thread a page back or a new listing that has nothing to do with the header.

I emailed the seller that I want to see this scope tonight.
Any thoughts? It is just down the road from me a few miles so very convenient purchase.
I cannot find a darned thing on the web about it.

I might have to buy it just to save it from some fool who has no idea what it is. There, that should make for a sale soon
