Please read the following eBay auction link and tell me if you found this as funny, and sad, as I did.
Key words to look for...'vigorous rubbing', 'wipe marks', 'lens cloth', etc.

The second to last picture in his auction shows how bad the primary is (bottom left).
I'm still trying to figure out how that would happen in the warm dry Arizona climate.
I hate to say it, but I wouldn't pay any more than his starting bid ($20) for it, given what it will cost to refinish the primary mirror, and the time it would take to fix the mount's corrosion.

That's a shame.
