    Buying sextant on ebay....sometimes it works

    On the other hand all things come to those that wait.  I was able to purchase 
    the MS-733 high end Tamaya (Spica?) for $450 after watching the ebay sextant 
    list for almost a full year.  It was a "buy it now" price and I lucked onto 
    the offer within minutes of the posting after 11 PM east coast time, with the 
    minimum bid being $300.  Lots of pictures of good quality allowed me to 
    decision to offer the buy it now price immediately.  Granted that buying 
    through ebay is somewhat risky for a quality object the price may justify the 
    risk.  The sextant and box is in absolutely pristine condition and has 
    standard scope (4X40) and optional binocular scope (7X35). Helps to be lucky 
    but being diligent checking the offers and knowing model types and expected 
    value helps because in many cases you need to decide quickly.  It is also 
    true that really good deals are somewhat rare.
