That is a 10 inch scope after all. The mirror kit alone would cost the same via mail order. I think in reality, it should be more. Once the Revelation series of Dobsonians came on the market over 2 years ago (the 12 inch retailing for £499 delivered UK), competitors have been forced to almost match the Revelation prices. The one you mentioned here richie - does that price include delivery? Can you post a link here?

Looks EXACTLY like a Revelation, just a different colour tube. The Dob mount is identical. That probably means the same low-cost manufacturing source too. Looks legit to me.
