Multiple Telescopes and Mounts for sale

Post by bsimon615 »

I am selling some telescopes and related astronomy equipment for Walter Sarrat in the Pontchartrain Astronomy Society. (Walter is significantly downsizing his collection.) Much of this equipment is in excellent to very good condition and ready to be picked up in New Orleans. Prices that we have set are very fair and are based upon research done on the internet. In most cases these prices are set at approximately 1/2 of what you would expect to pay for these items new. If interested in anything do not delay as what you see here today may be gone tomorrow.
