if it is this site you saw: [url=http://shopping.discovery.com/product-57665.html]http://shopping.discovery.com/product-57665.html[/url]

it says .2 lb not 2 lb (i think it should have had a zero before the point to make it easier to see)

Ahh, now Im with you.

I think that must be the UWA ep that weighs 2lb. This one is the regular plossl, which I should have of course have mentioned.

Meade? No, the company couldn't afford to buy that much raw material. Some of the Televue EPs do weigh about 2 lb, though.

"Some of the Televue EPs do weigh about 2 lb, though."

True. I have seen pics of some of them and they are as tall as a can of coke, and just about as wide also.
