These come up for auction about twice in a lifetime.

Two hours left. This could be a good price reference in the future.

I agree. I looked at that kit and thought 'if I had a spare $2K, I'd consider it,' since that's the only Pentax I don't have at this point. But 10K, even with a nice stockpile of the old IR bulbs, is crazy.

The seller is better off using the "Westlicht auction". They deal with rare camera gear all the time and routinely sell cameras for over 100,000 Euros.

eBay is not the place to sell a Pentax NOCTA!

They don't have a Pentax appraiser, however. I reached out to them about my factory misprinted Pentax K1000 that says K100, and they agreed it was likely worth a decent price but that they had no one with Pentax knowledge to provide an appraisal. So that was disappointing.
