What's the CHEAPEST scope you ever built?

I should get some kind of prize for this. Total cost was about 2 bucks plus a few pennies worth of glue. 1" aperture refractor, objective and eyepiece both surplus achromats for $1 each, the dewshield is a plastic aspirin bottle with the bottom cut out and painted silver, everything else including the stand, the drawtube, the front tube, all were parts from the inside of an old copying machine. Not a good scope for deep-sky though.
