What's the difference? LX65 v's LX85 OTA

Other than the rack and pinion focuser.....what else causes the significant price difference? The paint colour?????

It seems for that extra $500 you get a 9mm eyepiece, A 8x50 finder instead of a Red dot finder and as you mentioned a Rack and Pinion focuser.
That's about it, I don't think those extras are worth $500 though.
