Well, shame on B&L for rebranding someone else's work / not manufacturing these themselves, offering it for sale and profiting from it (a common practice)?
Shame on anyone selling or buying them for whatever they feel they are worth - what gives them the right to trade freely?! In B&L branded repro Harbor Masters, of all things?!!
I think there should be published, forthwith, a list of sanctioned-for-sale-and-or-purchase telescopes and their allowed prices. The public must be protected from themselves!

And now for something completely different:
Selsi Telescope Lamp - $225 on ETSY. This brought tears - that's a reflex. a reflex. they did that to a reflex... I love those... nice mount, too...
I think I'd like that image behind the opening credits of the movie I'm writing, "Where Satan Walks..." Matt Damon, as an amateur astronomer whose club (R. Reynolds, J. Leguizamo, Rihanna, Jamie Lee Curtis, Craig Ferguson, Mila Kunis) is tormented by demons (J. Anniston, G. Oldman) during a celestial alignment in the Montana sticks
