Can’t buy the Celestron C65

Remember this telescope I wished to buy costing a mere $55? I finally found an Indian dealer who quotes it at Rs.9015 (inclusive of air freight from the US to India, insurance, landing charges, ground handling in US & India, Customs Duty etc). I can’t blame the dealer for the sharp hike.

I would have bought the C65 Mini Mak at this price had I been crazy enough to take up astronomy in India!
