Hey Nave,

I'm actuually in Bozeman Mt. and there is an RV-6 AND an Edmund Astroscan on CL that you missed! Jeese man WHAT DO WE PAY YOU FOR! The Astroscan would fit in my car (I'm packing two scopes already) The RV-6 you are gonna have to come get :lol:

I picked up the SPI 60 X 1000 in Spokane on my way through yesterday and made a first light observation near the Continental Divide at about 6000 feet elevation. Star tests and Jupiter at 3 AM Mountain Daylight Time. I've heard others here complain about the mosquitos where they observe from, but I was more expecting to be eaten by something like a grizzly as I fumbled around in the dark while cursing the optics. Beautiful mechanical build however (I'll maybe do pix tonight) optically stars pretty much appear as three tailed comets. That can't be good! Oh well.

I packed my Asahi Pentax for the trip and had it out twice in Idaho and once in Montana last night and early this morning. And those late hitting Persieds. That was all WOW!

My new approach to flooding this thread is to let listings I find "mature" for a week before posting them to allow locals to have scooped them up. If they're still around, they're fair game. I'll date the ads.

That guy is in dream land wanting $180 for that toy.

I thought C8 too but he insists you look through the side of the 20" x 10" tube and not the back of it. I never got any photo's after asking twice so it's still a mystery.

Here is one tripped over on EBay: http://cgi.ebay.com/...e=STRK:MEWNX:IT

I have looked through one a ways back and was impressed by it. Much higher build quality than modern day Meade, Celestron etc


PS As of 5 minutes ago, it's mine. :)

I sure hope you (or someone here) get them. I would've love to have them but I won't be able to drive there for 3 weeks and I'm sure by then they would be gone.
