Before looking at how to find a used telescope for sale, it is important to consider what to look for in a used telescope. It is easy to see a bargain, and once we buy, find that it wasn't such a great purchase.

Telescopes are scientific instruments. Ok, it won't be used by NASA, but it still is a scientific instrument. There are 2 factors to consider, when buying a used telescope. That is the optics and the physical parts of the mount, tripod, and the tube that holds the optics for the telescope.

If any of these have major defects, then it will cause a lot of problems, with you trying to look at objects in the sky. For example bad optics would cause a more inferior image. And what is more worse, is that a smaller telescope that is new could outperform a used telescope, so it is a point to consider.
