Takahashi FS-152 SV (short version)
with the giant 4" Takahashi focuser.
Currently sporting a wonderful 3.5" Feather-Touch rotatable focuser with adapter.
We all know Tak quality and this scope certainly will meet or exceed your expectations. Seeing permitting (even when just average) the images through this telescope are simply astounding. I have gotten the best planetary views I've ever seen with THIS instrument and high-power lunar views have left me struggling to find words.
The telescope is in EXCELLENT condition and the objective is near perfect but for a little dust. Collimation is also perfect showing textbook star-tests. The telescope is about 50 inches in length and weighs in the area of 23 lbs.
The $7650 price includes Both focusers; the original giant Tak focuser and the 3.5" Feather-Touch ($885) with adapter ($225), Takahashi FS-152 tube holder ($450) and ADM Tak mounting plate ($70). The scope fits perfectly in the blue Orion case also included.
The "newer" Baader "Vario" 60mm finderscope and bracket ($427) and adapter ($38) to mount onto the Feather-Touch is available at an additional $300.
There are two tiny paint chips on the OTA that you don't even see when the telescope is in its cradle.
This offer is pick-up only. Located in the Burlington, NJ area. Can deliver or meet at a reasonable distance if it helps to share the driving burden. Just cover my fuel and I'll take care of the coffee ;-)
Feel free to ask me for more photos of any aspect of the telescope i may have missed.
