Maybe they stuck a fluorite lens in it. I just bought the same OTA for like $350 a while back. All them Vixens are good.
I saw this last night. There is a link to a Youtube video where the seller is trying to explain the scope, and apologize for his lack of knowledge. He does point out wear and scratches on the paint on the tube, probable missing parts (Yes, there are. One slow motion control, at least), etc.
I've sent him a message suggesting he Google Orion Vixen 4" achromat, and explaining why it isn't a fluorite model. I also suggest/urge he take the listing down and repost it with corrections.
I've done this in the past with eBay sellers for erroneous descriptions with mixed results. Most never reply, some thank me and correct it. But I've gotten some replies along the lines of, "I'm going to leave it up and let the bidders decide what it's worth."
Sometimes it's exasperating enough I think of quitting eBay and other peer-peer selling venues, and going back to businesses like Smears and Walls Phargo where I can count on being ripped off!
(Sorry. Anybody seen my meds?)
