That sucks, and by the way that is my pic!

 

Steve

 At least your most excellent pic doesn't suck.

Actually I've already had well over $40 worth of fun

with this and nothing about the entire process was

ever "sucky" for me at all. There was just an initial

bit of disappoinment at first perhaps.

On a positive,  "lemons to lemonade" note:

 

With none of that pesky glass getting in the way, the scope should deliver exceedingly "clear" views as well as zero chromatic aberration.. 

 

:whee:

You're a good guy badback. I believe a seller should not use someone else's image on an item to sell it. That throws up a red flag for me. Too many ways to get  and post pictures. The seller should have been more honest about the condition of this item and its missing parts plus you traveled to get it . I personally would have left it there, but its good that you can make it into working unit. Good luck my friend  Peace, Gary

If by any chance the one eyepiece it came with is the silver 12.5mm, I'll buy it from you for half what you paid for Ichabod here. I too have a 6344 complete with head and 4 of 5 colored eyepieces.. Hey I'll even trade you a black head HM 12.5mm..

 

$40 is a good deal.
