Oberwerk 15X70 Ultra binoculars and Tripod – $460
The Oberwerks 15x magnification pulls objects much closer than the cheaper Celestron 8×56’s
Original cost of the two items is $620 plus shipping and I am wanting to sell them for a 26%
Size and weight: Binoculars ~11 in. long and @ 5.5 lbs (Case is 12″ x 12″ x 16″ @ 14 lbs and
Tripod in box is 7″ x 7″ x 36″ @12 lbs).
Condition: The glass on the binoculars is pristine and always covered even in the storage box as
they came from Oberwerk
Would prefer to have local pickup in the Phoenix area but willing to travel for in-person

Meade 10″ Starfinder Telescope
Meade 10 in. Starfinder Reflecting Telescope. The Scope is on an equatorial mount with a motor drive. After the polar alignment procedure, single drive tracking is possible of stellar objects. Two eyepieces are included.
Asking price is $250. Contact Len Cohen at 623-546-3741, or email to email@example.com
Orion Spaceprobe 130 ST EQ
Consider this slightly used donation scope as-is… all it needs is an
eyepiece (i.e., 25 mm) and if desired, a finder scope. The Orion Spaceprobe 130 ST (short tube) is a convenient size and with a 5.1 in. aperture, and has a bright f/5 focal ratio. The scope is perfect for the more serious beginner or intermediate stargazer. The 130ST comes on an equatorial mount with dual setting circles and slow-motion hand controls. Once polar aligned, the EQ 2 will easily track celestial objects. Weight is only 27 pounds. Sale price is $150 or obo. Call John @ 623 544 2425.
