I sent the guy an Email yesterday morning when I first saw the ad but so far no response. The last RV-6 I bought was $40 but I am willing to go $50 and drive 15 miles to get it... :) :)

On the other hand, I already have one RV-6 and another one would just take up floor space and it would end up costing me $50 because I would have to find someone to give the thing to....

:( :(

My guess is the seller found someone to buy it, I just hope that someone was a first timer and not a reseller.

Sell the other one to me and ship it to NJ. It can take up space in my living room.

Richie:

This scope is not so big but it is actually physically longer than your Zhummell 10 inch. The RV-6 is a classic but owning one and owning a DOB very similar to your Zhummell, well, the RV-6 is an old man's scope...

I did get an Email from the seller. Someone is considering it for his grand daughter otherwise I am next in line. I did offer to help whoever buys it get it up and running and teach them how to use it...

Not that hard, that $40 scope went out the door for $100, $90 of it was for shipping... :help: :help: :help:

I'd buy it for the mount.

I could not get mine fixed, I have an extra off the shelf motor, but it needs to be modified to work in the scope.

Hell, this would just save me the pain.
