Depends on the lens of course....


I couldn't even find prices online but I'm sure that the build price dwarfs whatever optics they use.

Tele Vue Renaissance brass refractors were more expensive than their standard ones. The TVs had brass tubes, knobs, fixings & some had brass draw tubes for their focusers (same era as standard chrome drawtubes i.e. before matt black).

 

Moonrakers are mainly custom, they build what you want, every part, many colours. Custom anything is expensive.

Oh yeah, I'm not complaining. They're basically art pieces with lenses.
