And the quality of that Jaegers objective should be much higher than the Chinese achro Meade used...
I understand the wife factor; fortunately mine is very patient with me (most of the time).

If you want, you can buy it for me, then send it my way. I'll Paypal you the greenbacks for the scope, shipping cost and a few dollars for your time. Of course that is if the objective is in excellent shape.

Thanks for the advise,After careful consideration, I will not go ahead with this one ,maybe if the glass was in better condition I would . maybe next time if it ever comes along.My goal for this year is to save enought money to get a Meade 6" LXD75 AR6-AT Achromatic Refractor or maybe the Celestron CR6 I must stay focused

She left underwhelmed. I will still keep her anyway.
Hi Lawrence. Tough break on the scope. My husband is underwhelmed by a view through the telescope also... But he rarely says no to me

Well, at least the permission was eventually granted.
Look at it this way, you got the "OK" for a $450 gear purchase.
A man can buy a lot of things with 450.
2" OIII filter and a 2" PanOptic
a 7mm Nagler and an 11mm Nagler and change left over.
Lumicon 80mm Superfinder system with illuminator and change left over.
TOUCAM webcam and necessary adapters AND 2" Panoptic
The possibilities are limitless.
I use this angle - an eyepiece takes up less space than another scope and I get just as much enjoyment.
Regards and clear skies,
