    What contributes the most to a scope's weight: lenses, the tube, or other internal parts?

    Most tubes are Aluminum and other internals do not I feel add too much mass - so on balance I'd reckon the glass lenses are the most significant weight factor.

    Can't prove it tho!! More supposition than anything else.:)
