Seriously though, I had considered leaving a will and donating all of my astro stuff to a local school when I kick the bucket. (I have no kids of my own and my stepson already has his own gear)
Regards and clear skies,

Maybe I will have them bury my stuff with me. And I will put a curse on my tomb : endless poor seeing for any who dare to disturb my grave and gear!

Did any one see the moon and Venus show tonite....Just awesome..It felt as though I transported back to ancient Eqypt watching the heavens from the Giza Plateau as the moon and Venus both rose together, high above the great Pyramid, signaling the start of the annual flooding of the NIle.

Sorry but shoot me in the foot The rarest of rare and the only one on earth my dads telescope aww heck I guess I will just get rid of it on E-bay DADS OLD UNITRON
Like I told you before people today dont care!
I don't understand why everyone is always down on people selling "family" stuff like this? I mean look around at your own stuff......do you really want or even expect someone to keep everything you have just because it was yours? Perhaps these people inherited vast collections of coins, weapons or other items and decided to keep them instead of the lone telescope that "dad" set up once or twice.
Now if you have a guy trying to use a sob family story to push up the value of the scope then yes, I agree that is crazy but the seller of the Unitron mentioned in this thread does not appear to be doing that.

If your were My dad Bill I would keep all your junk!!!!
LOL! Heck, I keep hoping for a fire to assist with cleaning up all the junk around here! Seriously though, the older I get the less stuff I want! My attitude is that if I'm not using it.....it's outta here!
