Never used or not, $400 for a Towa-made 60mm achromat is absurd!

Yes somewhat unfortunate sky high asking price . It looks like it might actually be NOS.... and we love the Sear Haight? green color..... but similar to some ebay ads   some craigslist from estates finds are off the charts unrealistic listing prices...….But thanks for posting. It is useful for folks to see the trends both realistic and unrealistic   and the good the bad  and the ugly.....

maybe $125, and at the high end, maybe $150, if someone really wanted it.

Looks like the objective is toast, so I think it’s a bit much.

It's too bad this is so expensive.  I can't remember the last time I saw a Compustar come up for sale.  https://palmsprings....7259857319.html
