Buyer pays shipping

For auction is a Takahashi TOA 130NFB with accessories. I am the second owner and have had the scope for about 3 years. Reason for auction is I have too many scopes and not enough piers! The scope is in good working condition. The objective has a moderate degree of spotting and dust (see images) due to remote observatory usage for about a year and a half in the desert Southwest. I have not made any attempts to clean it or alter it in any way as it has not affected performance. There are also 2 small scuff marks on the side of the OTA (see image). Included are several accessories listed below. There is a 2” compression ring to which you could attach a diagonal (not included) and eyepiece. I also have included the CA35-T-mount adaptor for DSLR usage. I will have to ship 2 boxes, one for the scope and one for accessories. Original manual is also included.

I can only ship to CONUS. You must have a shipping address in the continental US. PayPal only. Free shipping.
Winning bidder is NOT responsible for shipping cost. I will cover insurance as well. I did not find that option in the drop down menu so just ignore the "buyer pays shipping" above. Also I will be waiving the PayPal fee so the closing price will be the total price. Thanks all for your interest!

What is being auctioned:

  • Takahashi TOA 130NFB OTA including 4” focuser which incorporates the Tak manual camera rotator. Tube mounting rings, ADM losmandy style dovetail. You have the option of mounting a second dovetail on the top of the rings
  • Tak TOA 67 flattener
  • Adaptors for the flattener and also for DSLR attachment (bayonet Canon type)
  • Stellarvue F50W2 finder scope and mounting bracket

Thanks for looking!
