I have a David Clark X11 headset for sale, just came back from DC so it's like a new headset.
Asking $550 shipped
This Meade ETX-105 UHTC (for Ultra High Transmission Coatings) Telescope is in excellent, nearly new condition. It comes with Meade’s 497 Autostar tracking system, a Meade 884 Deluxe Field Tripod, Meade 776 travel carry case, and an expanded eyepiece set. This is a great little scope, excellent for traveling. It comes with a tripod, hard carrying travel case and a complete 6 piece accessory eyepiece set.
In addition to the original 26 mm eyepiece, the eyepiece kit consists of the following sizes:
The Autostar is an awesome feature. Level the scope, point it north, enter your relative location and time, and hit go. It finds a star, you tweak the aim, hit Enter, and repeat. Ready to go. This gives the scope a spatial starting point on earth.
Then, scroll through the selections on the handset, choose, say, Saturn, and hit Go. The scope goes right to Saturn, locks on, and tracks it until you're ready to move on to the next viewing. For more information on the AutoStar system, see: http://www.meade.com/autostar/autostars.html
Viewing is great, especially for our favorites Saturn and Jupiter. Setup is quick and easy, as is storage. This is an awesome, complete turn-key telescope set to start exploring the heavens.
