By the way, where did you find the used AT? I’ve been looking but haven’t found one.
I found it on Ebay at about 5:00 Am on Tue. It is coming from a Long time member with 100% Rating with free returns. ( THIS IS THE ONLY I GO ON EBAY) It had 34 watchers already and it was not in the line up at 1:30 Am when I looked I thought for a moment and did a quick review on CN then puched it in to the cart. The only thing it was missing was the finder shoe. I picked one up for $12.00
I see really nice telescopes now and again on Ebay, they dont last long. But you have to be careful. I always check the venders ratings.
The one thing I get a good laugh at on Ebay, AstroMart and Cloudynights Classifieds, is when a seller wants almost as much as a brand new Telescope plus shipping and PayPal fees and it winds up being more than a brand new telescope with free shipping.
I have yet to be burned on Ebay. "KNOCK ON WOOD"
I am considering one right now a 1970's Sears and Roebuck Discover model 4 6333,on a GEM mount, I may pay a little more for it than I want but It does not look like it was ever set up or used. Original card board box that's in nice shape. I will need a 0.965 to 1.25 diagonal for it no issue, They are pleniful.
I think I need to add one for the collection. Just because, that's all.
HAPPY SKIES AND KEEP LOOKING UP Jethro
