Quote:It would be interesting to know exactly which AP refractor was on the mount. The mount is worth around 8,000 and depending on the scope, anywhere from 9,500 to 35,000.

When the 175mm was introduced I saw it displayed as a bundle with the AP1200 for the regular retail price, which was somewhere in that price neighborhood; $25K-$30K. Of course, neither is available new any more so it may have some rarity value enhancement.
