The administrators of this site have graciously granted me permission to offer this microscope outfit for sale. I have owned and used it for several years, but am now letting it go because I've decided to concentrate on other activities. I am asking $2,700 net of any paypal charges and shipping at actual cost. This price was arrived at by looking at recent fleabay prices for the same or comparable equipment.

Interested parties may contact me by PM here. At this time, I do not want to sell anything separately. This could happen later, if it doesn't sell as a "happy family".

I can probably furnish it with a Diagnostic Instruments SPOT thermoelectrically cooled fluorescence camera at extra cost if the buyer is interested.

I will be happy to consider reasonable offers.

Just to be sure the policy is clear...

The photomacrography.net forum is strictly non-commercial and not for profit.

As we said when we answered g4lab's inquiry: "Concensus of the admins is that it's OK to post an occasional notice of equipment that's available because a member has upgraded or no longer needs it. Strictly non-commercial -- the forum doesn't make a profit and we don't think it should be used to make one either."

If equipment is offered at a price that's higher than the offeror paid, or if it was bought intending to resell it rather than use it, then the posting is for-profit and/or commercial and not acceptable.

The phrasing in the initial post was a bit troubling, but thanks for the PM providing further information. I've tweaked up the posting to more accurately reflect the situation.

Best regards and hope you find a buyer,
