Better bring a big truck for this sale... one never knows.

Telescope with tons of accessories

Preston you can handle this two ways. Either drive up in a front end loader or pay him with ton's of cash! :penny: :penny: :penny: :penny: :penny: :penny: :penny: :penny: :penny: :penny: :penny:

Wait a minute! You mean to tell me I've been doing it wrong all these years!?! I thought you were supposed to look into the big end of the telescope so you can see that the stars are really far away.

What's with these dips? Are these scopes just front end heavy or what? There's been a plethora of these lately. Come to think of it I've done the same thing! :help:

This one

HEY you CN and AM guys! NO, I'm not selling my classics in the picture, craigslist would not let me repost the original pictures.
Please don't call expecting to buy them and please don't put me on the CN Classics site! I'll get flooded!

OMG

I wasn't expecting this but considering the nature of this string....

Right after I posted this I got a call from the East Coast about the Fecker and Unitron. That's when I quickly added the addendum to CN and AM. Since then I have had two calls about my reference to 'Canadian' and 'American' guys!

Craigslist had deboggled my first post with specific pictures, then wouldn't let me repost for 48 hours using the pictures. I didn't want to waite so I revamped the ad and used another handy picture. I wanted to get the idea across of being a scope guy a little more dedicated than your typical garage dumper.

The addendum must have worked. I haven't had any more request for my classics........now don't start.

... recommended by an astronomer fried of hours.



I'm not sure if the poor scientist was just overworked, or something much, much worse.

I like this one, currently on the Washington, DC craigslist

"Regular telescope gray in color with stand and extra scopes for $15.00"

I guess it's better than an irregular telescope
