Welcome to Chicagoland Astro-Ads! This page is provided as a free service to amateur astronomers in the greater Chicago, Illinois area as a place to post astronomy related classified ads, and to shop for used astronomy equipment within a reasonable radius, enabling buyers to personally connect with the sellers. Your hosts are the Naperville Astronomical Association, one of Chicagoland's many fine amateur astronomy clubs. To submit an ad, see the information at the bottom of this page.
--A word of caution to users of this page: The Internet is prowled by crooks, too. If your ad is posted here, you may get responses from various scam artists as well as serious purchasers. And while we've never had any complaints about scam postings, we cannot guarantee the honesty of the people posting ads here, either. Again, the purpose of this service is to help local astronomers connect; we suggest that you complete your transactions face-to-face! (To you crooks, go looking elsewhere for victims; this page is for local U.S. sales, and the sellers here aren't going to ship overseas!)--
To submit an ad for posting, e-mail the ad information to: email@example.com . Be sure to include your full name (no anonymous postings!); also an e-mail address and/or telephone number where potential buyers can reach you. You must provide your city; you may also include a street address if you would like it listed. We do not host photographs of your items on our site, but you may include links to photos or other details if you have them on your own webspace.
Ads must be of an astronomical nature; they can include items wanted or for sale, information wanted, or searches for other area amateurs sharing a specific interest with you. The service area for this page is a 70 mile radius from Naperville, Illinois; this includes Racine Wis.; Rockford, Ottawa and Kankakee Ill.; Michigan City, Ind.; and, of course, Chicago. The concept is for buyers to be in reasonable driving distance from sellers.
The Naperville Astronomical Association reserves the right to edit ad content and select whether or not to run any ads submitted, and in no way provides any warranties on their content or the materials listed in them, nor accepts any responsibility for typographic errors. The N.A.A. will attempt to post submitted ads reasonably promptly, and remove them in the same manner when the submitter instructs us via e-mail to do so, but is not able to guarantee this service. We may remove ads which have remained posted for an extended period on our own.
For more information on the N.A.A., check out our website via the site menu on the left. For the other area clubs' websites, see our Links page. If you would like to put a link to this page on your site, feel free to do so; for the HTML code to add a little picture button, just drop us a request at firstname.lastname@example.org.
