Best & Worst investments in telescopes

My best: A TV Oracle 3 apo purchased new in 1987 for $750. Appreciated 50% after 13 years of use when I sold it.

My worst: a 14.5" truss-dob with a turned edge that I hadn't discovered until years after the maker went out of business. Cost about $1800, had to part it out for half that or less.
