So the funnest part of collecting anything is the suprize of opening the box and saying either shoot theres mold on it or Wow I have never seen one this nice before!!!!
Yup! The great Most Emphatically NOT Haggis-shoot!
You either roll snake eyes and get poor glass, or you luck out and score big.
Part of the fun is the hunt!

As someone else said, "what some guy will pay"/"what some guy will take."
I am not a big fan of 60mm scopes, prefer the 80mm and larger and I look for a deal.
Some recent acquisitions:
80mm F/11 Celestron/Vixen First scope $50
Meade 310 $50
Criterion RV-5+ $65
Sears 6333 $20
THe problem: Some good deals but then, what do I do with all these scopes?? Last count I had like 25???

I am the one who is awaiting the Sears 2.4' from AMart. I have been looking for a few months and happened to spot the ad when it had 4 or 5 hits. So... I went for it. Will let the Forum know when it arrives and first light. I felt that the price and stated condition were fair. Allen
