He's including the rotating rings and the 80mm rings.
May be worth it. Although the reserve has not yet been met. He may have his reserve too high. Once it hits about 900, I would reconcider. Too much at that point.

I was not the winning bidder, but I received an email from the seller stating that the person who WAS the high bidder had not followed up with payment and that I was being offered an "eBay Second Chance" to acquire the scope at my last bid price.
Also included was a form that appeared to be from eBay, requesting personal and account information and requiring payment through Western Union only! I responded that I would not use WU and would only consider PayPal (for which I was already set up in eBay).
By this time I was more than a bit suspicious (and sorry that I had responded at all), so I sent a copy of the document to eBay. They informed me that it was NOT an eBay form and that they had NOT authorized any "Second Chance" etc.
Moments later I received ANOTHER email, purporting to be from PayPal, informing me that someone had made an "unauthorized attempt" to access my account and that I needed to re-verify my account information by responding immediately to the email. This, too, was a spoof (confirmed by PayPal)-"phishing" for information that truly would have allowed someone to access the account.
Coincidence? I think not.
Subsequent emails to the seller have gone unanswered.
Did the seller have his listing "hijacked" by a scam artist...or was the whole thing a scam from the start?
Enquiring minds want to know!
Whatever - lets' be careful out there.....

No, on second thought, I believe it.
