CaK PST for sale - help

Post by Montana » Thu Oct 31, 2013 12:23 pm

The hubby found that a CaK PST is for sale on Astromart, however I do not have access to this site.

Can someone please tell me how much it is?

It's a bit daft making people pay to subscribe to this site :? but perhaps it is an American site only?

Alexandra,

The price is $1099, which is, of course, ridiculous.

I clearly should not have given away all three of ours, eh?

these kinds of unscrupulous sales ads really rub me the wrong way.

This guy could give this to a school or an outreach person and take the tax write off and receive back more than it cost new and do something good for others instead of attempting to reap maximum profit. Of course, I realize that this isn't everyone's opinion.

I tried to register with this company they took my money then banned me and won't refund my money or tell me why they banned me, this is what they said.

(you are on a watch CLOSE list because of discrpencies in your sign up information)

then when I asked for my money back this was their reply.

(please contact your bank to dispute the charge)

Not happy.

When dealing with Herb York, always use a prophylactic (credit card). ;)

Sounds to me like it makes more sense to avoid all contact.

Not if you want to be able to sell astronomical equipment on Astromart. I realize there are other places to sell astronomical equipment, but Astromart is the most active. I've sold many thousands of dollars worth of equipment there that I was unable to sell anywhere else. Putting up with Herb's behavior is just par for the course.

Case in point, I put a scope up for sale this morning and it sold in five (5) minutes. I'm glad Astromart is there. I'll put up with a lot of Herb for easy sales like that.

For many of us, dealing with the bizarre behavior at Astromart is not worth it.
