Looks nice.

The 7TE-5 has a 60mm aperture with a 1000mm focal length. They are very nice telescopes!

Yeah, that's the 60mm x 1000mm refractor. I have two of them now. I don't need a third one, but I wouldn't mind upgrading to one nicer one... :)

Well, it looks like I'm going to have to buy my 1965 3" Solarama a baby brother. Time to break out the long cannons and get a biddin'

Doesn't (apparently knowingly)setting a ridiculously high $2,000 reserve cost a bunch of money to list? I think I'm gonna pass on this one. My Spidey-sense tells me so.

Where is the reserve stated? I didn't see it? It is sitting at $26.00 right now, reserve not met.

$2000 is expecting *waaaaaaaaay* to much.

Heck, that's Unitron type of money!

State terms and conditions. Place in a plain brown envelope. Drop off behind dumpster around block. Come alone. Midnight.

I think everyone should go to his sale and "Ask the Seller a question" and tell him what its really worth!

I do that all the time. That's how I got the Tasco 900mm for 30 dollars! :lol:

I have told the seller what other scopes have sold for comparing there conditions with the one he is selling. According to the seller, he is selling it for his Uncle. The Uncle thinks its worth $2000.

I'm having a sense of deja-vu. I think, but am not sure, I have seen those pics before. Or at least the "main" one.

I've had two of these over the years. Nice scope. Mount is a little shaky. Thats an issue and trade off with the long requiring long legs on the tripod and trying to keep the weight down.

I'll double the deja. I believe I vu'd the same picture before and also the text part about acquiring the scope in Vietnam in 1965.
