Just now walked into my man cave muttering, "Wonder what my Tinsley would bring at auction?" -- and she tried to hide behind that 40mm SPI...
Best I can tell, these have gone for about $1300 without the case, when they've shown up at auction -- which ain't often.
Terra put on her Naughty Hat on the auction thread, tried to bait me on this scope. Here's my pros & cons based on what I know.
Pro - another oddball for the Fred Sanford of Vintage Scopes.
Con - unlike my current Tinsley, it's an expensive oddball.
Pro - good cosmetics, maybe it wasn't used much.
Con - maybe it wasn't used much because the views stink.
Pro - I could win the auction.
Con - it could be a Pyrrhic Victory.
Pro - it could out perform my Questar.
Con - yeah, right!!
Pro - it would be a cool display.
Con - how often do I display my Questar? Never - they made cases for a reason!
