Bolt distances on Takahashi Mounts

Which mount - EM-200, EM-400, NJP?

EM-11 or Em-200

I am a little confused since you mention "imaging only" but your equipment/weight list includes binoviewer and eyepieces. For a couple of years I used an FS-152 with binoviewer and eyepieces on an EM-200 and performance was excellent.

I bought one at a pawn shop many long years ago for $90. They thought it was a radio....

Anyway, it worked fine and gave very pleasing views of the moon and low power deep sky. Bought it before the last swing through by Halley's Comet. Went out near Joshua Tree National Park and set the scope up for friends to see the comet. It was a wonderful experience for everyone, enhanced by the little scope.

Almost sorry I sold it.....but a Cave 6" RFT has that base covered now!

Great collection! I have owned several of the Series 4000 eyepieces and found each excellent performers. My favorite - I have owned three - is the 14mm UWA. Great eyepiece, superb views in so many scopes I have lost count!

Can't get replies from sellers...

Posted By Larry Thaxton

I have had several folks respond to ads I placed. However, when I attempt to respond to them by using “reply” I do not hear from them again. I started sending each person a personal message via Astromart and did get a reply stating they had never received my earlier messages. Am I missing something?

Two separate responses to private messages, two different ads:


was curious if you had seen my response of yesterday for your ad, I am hopeful to be able to purchase it. 

Hi Larry -

I never did get an email. 

Not sure if using “reply” is the correct choice once I receive a response to my ads from AM? None of my messages get through.

Hi Greg,

Thank you for looking into this. A screen shot I took of the auction as it appears under “auctions ending soon”:
