    I think Joel intended no insult here.  He is merely trying to
    establish/maintain his presence in the market, which is a different
    motivation than that of most of the posters on this list, and leads to
    different behavior.
    I would just as soon not reveal how much I paid for an inverting scope.
      BTW, I believe it is 6x not 7x, according to one manual I downloaded.
    I've not tried to measure its magnification yet, and don't know how,
    offhand.  I am very pleased with it, but I wish that a clear sky would
    coincide with an interval when I have the time and inclination to use
    Joel has a good point that the box has the letters, "SNO-T," on it.  It
    is natural to then advertise it as a "SNO-T," so that the buyer is not
    confused when he receives a "SNO-T" but had ordered a "SNO-T."  That
    leads to suspicion on the buyer's part regardless of whether this is
    explained before the sale or after the sale or shipment.
    In microscopes, various measuring devices are inscribed on glass disks
    which are inserted in the eyepiece at a focal plane.  I don't know
    whether the eyepiece of telescopes would differ, but have assumed they
    would not.
