Beautiful instrument but, if I had any money, I would spend it on something to observe and photograph with, rather than a museum piece.

A museum piece I would think... Price, well what someone is willing to pay for a slice of history 📜?
Cheers,

Probably a wonderful scope, but I don't think it would work very well in my SkyShed POD or would be the right scope for my Bortle 6 back yard. :)
