If that price includes the mounting, it's an insanely good buy. I didn't see where it stated OTA only. ???

John,

I know, I'm sitting here with my finger on the trigger. If it comes with the mount I don't think I could ever possibly stop myself :foreheadslap: :question:

It got my attention, too. Take note: it only comes in Cassegrain mode; you'll need to buy the parts for the Newtonian conversion.

HTH,
Eric

"A coward dies many deaths.
A brave man tastes of death but once."

Not to mention, that's one heckuva deal; then you can sell your Vixen VC200L for a bar-gain... :grin:

I looked at the deal and passed(!)
The kit for the Newtonian mode is available from TNR for about $500. Used prices for CN-212s from Astromart are all over the map, at $2600 it would be an OK deal, but not a great one. I decided to wait for the Mewlon 210 that I have on order rather than take a chance on a used CN-212.
