           (wonder what he's thinking about)

 

 

  The basic guideline for this thread is to list ads and auctions for classic/vintage scopes and associated accessories that others may be interested in. Do not post your own ads or the ads of your friends, this includes items you may be trying to sell for someone else. We request that you do not post photos from ads. If you must have some reference to a photo in the post, post a link to the photo, not the photo itself. Concentrate on the item for sale, and not the seller.

 

Please post a live link to the item. Do not post "PM me for the link".Short discussions can take place about the items listed. When quoting a post, edit the quoted post to include only the part you are replying to. Do not post the entire ad text, or large blocks of it, without permission from the author. Keep on topic, please!

 

Buyer Beware- CN is not responsible for any of the ads or auctions posted here or their content. There are some scams floating around, so do your homework before pursuing any ad.

  I'm thinking about my neighbor.

You see, it's a long story. In a nut shell,

My neighbor thinks I'm drilling for oil under my driveway.

 I kinda played along with it so I could turn off her 10 zillion candlepower outdoor lite

when I observe.

She is soo nice to me. She let me install a switch.

Was this listed on the previous thread?  I don't know, as I got several pages behind since I've been working on Mars full time the past couple months.

 

It's a 6" Deluxe dynascope, though I don't see the pier in the photos.  Might be a bit pricey, or might not be.  I think I've bought from this seller before.

Didn't these scopes also come with a pier?  My understanding is that the legs fold up and store inside the pier.

My 8" did but my 6" just had the legs.

Another  Edmund Scientific red reflector.

https://www.ebay.com...4.m46890.l49286

 

The Holmar Refractor on Ebay is ending in about 18 hours. 

I asked the seller for photos of the objective and they sent a few. I see what looks like three small clam chips. They go in only as far as the spacers and are all right next to each other.  Pretty poor photos. 

PM me if you wish to see photos sent to me by seller.

I’m thinking that this is something for a microscope. Unitron was really much more of a microscope company than a telescope company. The ‘10X’ seems to be a microscope clue.

Figured it was for a microscope. Shame that it is.  Would have been a neat toy.

??  It's about the same size as your 6" f/4, and your C150R.  And much  smaller than your 10" dob.

 

If it was close to me, I would get it.  I like the way it looks.
