    Default Selling used excellent condition 15" Obsession telescope



    Part of estate sale for my late Uncle who was very much into Astromony. He owned several telescopes including an Obsession 15" telescope made by Dave Kriege which retails around $4,500.00. Selling at $2,500.00 OBO. Reply to this thread if interested.

    Haven't had my telescope long enough to have "inchitis", but you will have no difficulty selling it at that price. I suppose there is a kit of accessories as well. It would be helpful to list them. (Oh.... I wish.......)

    Hi RjVjRj ..Welcome aboard the forums ..Thanks for joining up and jumping in ...I don't think you will have any trouble selling your uncle's scope ..That is a great price depending on what condition it is in ......

    What condition is the mirrors coating ? Do NOT attempt to clean the mirror ..An astronomer will know how to clean the mirror if it needs cleaning ..The chemicals used for cleaning mirrors these days will harm the surface ...

    I think you should buy the scope wwpierre ...You can afford it ......
