    Wow, I didn't know it was so costly, I will have make provision in my will for bequeathing my eight ounces. I bought it about 1970 and I don't remember being shocked by its price at that time.

    $45/ounce for mercury, how many ounces would one need with a Davis Horizon, it's reflective properties notwithstanding, sounds to rich for my blood, sad to note.

    Additionaly, in my limited experience with these devices, water, for sun shots, works just fine so far as I could tell. Couldn't get the thing to work for a moon shot I tried once or twice, possibly due to operator error. For stars, who knows, but I doubt it, corrections here if appropriate.
