George had a price list for the items he had.

I will go ahead and accept the scope on behalf of the club.

Was a price ever decided? I might be interested in setting up an observatory on Hatteras Island.

Yeah but I think we need to go to Georges house one day and find out what is and isn't there for the Observatory. We can put it on Astromart and toss any funds into the pile JT From: backbayastro@... [mailto:backbayastro@...] On Behalf Of Dale

Subject: Re: [backbayastro] Telescope donation Mark, I normally took donated scopes, sold them and put $ in treasury. You could bid it out at a meeting or astromart, ebay, I would never turn downa piece of donated equipment. Somebody will buy it.Dale From: gerlach.mark Sent: Monday, September 24, 2012 1:44 PMTo: backbayastro@... Subject: [backbayastro] Telescope donation All:
I had a gentleman call me wanting to donate a scope to the club, no stipulations or restrictions. His wife wants it out of the dining room and he does not want to go to the trouble of selling it on the internet.

It is a Meade model 8800 8" f4.5 Newtonion. From what I can find, this model was introduced in 1989. I didn't find a date that it was discontinued. He said it was over 15 years old and needs some (unspecified) work on the gears.

I know we have not accepted scope donations in the past, but might this be something we could accept and sell to a member or other interested party?
