Where did you get the price of 830$ for this telescope? It sounds way to good to be true!

I have found several distributers and can't find a price for less than 1500$ for the telescope and mount package. The ota alone goes for about 1300$.

The prices listed here are entered by other users. Ideally, they are SRP, but since this particular price is so cheap, it could be used..

I got mine directly from the factory at about USD 800. However, shops might charge you more because they have to pay for shipping and customs etc. Try Malcolm at www.talscopes.com the prices there are not that high.

>Excellent scope for the money. Built like a rock, has withstood a couple of drops. Good eyepieces with it. Pedestal mount a bit low, but still rigid as a rock

Is $830 the real cost of this scope? Are there additional shipping and handling and tax liability charges that one needs to figure into the cost? Are there any accessories that oneneeds to obtain to optimize the use of this units abilities (e.g. diagonal, oculars, mount, tripod, etc.)

$830 is/was the factory direct price. Shipping for a single scope from Russia adds quite a bit to the real cost - several hundred dollars. They don't offer factory direct sales anymore unless you don't have a dealer in your region. I got mine from a person that bought three of them direct from the factory last year, and the cost for me was $1150 plus shipping from Oregon to California ($57) I don't believe he made much profit from the deal, as he said shipping cost was nearly half the cost of the scope.
