I thought I would show you what is capable if you watch the classifieds here and are fast , first up this scope is the same as the one in the last post taken a few months ago , this photo was last month .

I grabbed a ED 80 crayford for <$50 , the GSO alt/az mount for < $70 , 7x50 white finder $30 and a rattle can of off white from Repco $12 to paint the counter cell ( up front ) to match the new focuser and finder , a totally different scope for ! $160 , yes the classifieds are your friend .

Yes they all needed a bit of work but thats what makes it all the more interesting ,,, learning . Oh yes they were all brought with my full knowledge of their problems , the people here are awesome and up front .

Watch the classifieds mate .

Brian.
