Hey Guys, let me first start by admitting that I am not a Stargate fan at all. Not that I don't like the show, I've honestly never sat down and watched it. However, I do often buy unique items from estate sales...which is why I am here... I recently purchased a Celestron Firstscope 70AZ telescope and noticed that it has "Stargate SG-1" and the "MGM" logo stamped on the side of it.
I can find NOTHING about this "Stargate SG-1" telescope online, other than this one ebay listing: http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll...ht_13971wt_912
I sent the ebay lister an e-mail asking if he had any more info on this, and this was the response I got:
MGM had only about 25 of this Celestron model telescope specially outfitted with the Stargate/MGM logos, and issued them to a few select people as the official Stargate SG-1 Celestron telescope. I assume all 25 were given to people who closely worked with the show and it's success. They weren't available to the public, and so I doubt you will ever find any information online. There is a letter included that is from MGM. I hope that helps.
Can any one here confirm if this is true? Did MGM really have these made and give them to people working on/with the show? If any of you guys have ANY information on this telescope, I would GREATLY appreciate it!
And if anyone is wondering, yes it is for sale.
