Hopefully not an "Amityville Horror": Meade Starfinder

The pic is of the 10". If this scope is indeed new, it would be interesting to hear how that came to be! (since they haven't been made in a long time).

I'd bid if it wasn't across the country. But it is. A prospective buyer might want to ask them to post pics, even if (maybe especially if) it's of sealed boxes.

Its a camera joint that sells telescopes, so it was probably an old telescope left in the rafters of the store. :shrug: I just hope the tube walls don't ooze blood.

Yes it is, and looks to be in decent condition. Price is higher than I'd want to spend, though.

Hi Folks!

This thread is getting long and unwieldly. So it's time to shut it down and restart a new one. :)

There is now a new thread stickied to the top of the forum.

Best regards and clear skies,

MikeG
