Tasco 8 inch Newtonian reflector back on ebay

ebay auction: 300037128677
I don't remember whether the seller had fewer or more feedbacks than the current 11- maybe they have more now, or did they dump the old ones and start over??
Anyway, since the search function is disabled on CN at the moment I was unable to find the original thread, so am starting this new one.

Well the whole thing (including a nice equatorial pier) went for $150. Try to find a deal like that on an '80's vintage 8 inch long focus reflector with an equatorial. I would have bought it myself if not for the question about the seller and no shipping.
Those big Tascos (there was also a 6" f/8 offered) were made by Meade.
They were only marketed for a short time in the early 1980's. The retail selling price of them was much higher than what Meade's white-tubed scopes sold for so VERY few people bought the Tasco models.
