I think the interesting thing about RGO box going for $45 is, with a bit of patience, one could find the actual eyepiece with box for maybe $20-$30 more. So the box is worth more than the eyepiece.

Your logic is flawed. Many, many things are worth more when "parted out" than when sold whole. How much does the EP alone sell for? I don't know as I've never looked at what they cost but it probably isn't less than what was paid for the box...

Pff... That box has terrible Field Curvature, limited FOV and no Eye Relief to talk about. Not worth the 99 cents... :smirk:

Agreed, for box perfection you need an XW box which is sharp to rhe edge :)

I have an absolutely gorgeous box from a 2X Powermate T-ring adapter, pristine LNB. PM me if you're interested.

Orthos? Ortho boxes are small, will they command a bigger price? They are sharp to the edge....

Hey I kept my Sansui speaker boxes also from a store in Troy Ohio outside of Dayton purchased back in 1976. If I ever buy eyepieces new I always keep the boxes.
