Thanks everyone. I am going to check out the Fat Robin and I would love to find some used binoculars.

Jim Zipp often has trade-ins for resale.  I bought my Zeiss scope barely used from  The Cape May Observatory and am so happy I could do so.  Many of us have bins we can resell.  The best reason to buy used anything is to save the environment from the damage starting with getting the raw materials,  to the energy used in manufacture and transport.
