    I picked up a bunch of stuff from a deceased telescope maker.   Two telescopes, one is a 6 inch f 8 dob mounted newtonian.  The other is a classic  90 mm F10 on a EQ mount.  If you have a small refractor, the EQ mount makes this a great buy at $75.  The 6 inch f8 is priced at $100.

    Want to play with eyepieces?  A almost dozen eyepieces at $10 each.  Ranging from 4 mm to 25 mm.  How about a finderscope for $10?

    There are astronomical mirror blanks ranging in size from 4 inch to at least 14 inch.  Price will vary,  but the three bigger ones should bring the club several hundred dollars each.  They are that good!

    Also, a couple of diagonals.  Good quality.  $15.

    And, for you newtonian buffs.  We have some good quality collimation tools.

    $50 for a set of three or four.

    We also have a Techron 2 inch rack and pinion focuser.   This is a bit of a collectors item.  $100.

    I will advertize here for two weeks,  and then  move all this to Astromart.

    Concerning the estate sale advert posted.   I had forgotten club policy so the previous listing should be taken as a hint only  of what is to come.  Sometime in April or May this stuff will be available to AAC members....
