the only thing that stops this is the value of the items going down which begets a mass sell off. I would not be surprised at all to find that none of these people have any interest in astromomy at all, or use any of this stuff.

I acquired a large collection of William Buchele's optical books at a Vernonscope auction a few years back, but I didn't realize how accomplished an optician he was until I read the background on him described in this eBay listing. I thought he was just another guy. I'm sure he'd be happy to know his books are still being put to good use.

Take a look at at90210 Much of his buying is outside of the telescope categories. But if you see he's high bidder on something you want, plan on spending a lot of money.

But one does wonder where all the equipment goes. There are some odd balls who collect vast amounts of old Sony discman players on ebay too... perhaps these people are fronts for secret conspiracy groups sent from the future to obtain our ancient technology
