The Ultimate Telescope Mount?
If you own a telescope, you will know the importance of a good mount. You know the feeling; the one you have is never quite good enough, particularly if you are into astrophotography. Well if you are quick you can perhaps buy the ultimate mount. (Can you guess what it was originally used for - see the link (E-bay) for full details) It even comes with a 250mm aperture f5 refractor! Better call the bank manager first though as the price is an eye-watering $100,000 (ono)
