The unitron is fairly priced and the Comet catcher is tempting.

There are 8 orange celestrons from 90mm to 8" on ebay and a couple of Blue and white models.  Not sure if I have ever seen that many vintage Celestrons on ebay at once.

Anything made for a surgical use is much more expensive than a consumer product. The next time I go in for surgery, I hope they are using very high quality equipment!

That said, a Google search for Seiler Objective lens set found single lens for around the price of this listing.

I hope my dentist isn't buying used lenses on eBay. (In reality, the most likely downside would be to the dentist's pride.)

When I saw this I felt this was two separate objectives from two different telescopes, and then an extra empty box that they wer put in for storage. I did not think they were an actual mated system. Each component to me looks like a very different vintage.Maybe spanning as much as 80 years.
