One of finest 4" visual refractors made. The rare Takahashi FC-100N.
This sample is from 1990 and followed the "Newton Star Seeker" which is the same telescope just produced in 1988-89 for the Japanese Newton star gazers club. This sample is in excellent condition. I have owned this scope since 2004 and have babied it and have compared it basically ALL 4" Apochromatic telescope and have always seemed to reach for this one while others sat on the bench. . Excellent star test with some of my most memorable observing sessions provided by this scope.
There are numerous reviews available supporting how wonderful these telescopes are. I have never come across a bad review. I particularly agree with the Dark Star web site review.
Personally IMO the build is superior to todays Tak FC DL series. I don't think many would disagree. The fluorite matting glass is also not the same with the newer offerings. In addition the FC-100N is a f/10 doublet. Not f/9
I am willing to ship this telescope overseas but would only accept Bank transfer for overseas buyer.
This auction is for the OTA and eyepiece adapter only. Nothing else included.
