Unitron Herschel wedge??

http://www.ebay.com/...=item234124f2b0

 

 

and in the realm of things prices just a TAD too high:

 

Nippon Kogaku Tokyo 50 mm 750 mm Telescope

http://www.ebay.com/...sd=221355934241

Holy Smokes!!

 15x overpriced in very good condition. That one was ridden hard put away wet and used as a pry bar. That is unbelievable.  Worth $50-75 for parts or resto maybe.

Yep, at first I figured there was a typo in the ad, but he's serious apparently.  It wins the award for most overpriced item ever.

Just think, i paid less than 10 times that amount of two 4' Untrions in the past.
