For sale is FCT-100 f/6.4, in great shape. S/N 89xxx so made in 1989

The scope is in great shape. Body has only a few very small blemishes (not sure if you can see from the photos) and the front lens has a few small dusts.

The optics is amazing. I actually had a chance to set it up with a AP 105 traveler owned by a friend. After observing Orion Trapezium the two scopes visually , we both concluded that the FCT visual is slightly better than AP traveler. And I personally think the Orion nebula is slightly more vivid (or more contrast) with FCT (maybe due to fluorite?)

The reason I am selling is only because I've got a chance to buy a TEC160ED so need to raise fund.

What's including is the scope with front end cap and the rear accesories shown ready for 1.25'' diagonal to view, as shown in the photos

If you want to do Astroimaging, you can check my another ad of a rare f/4.6 reduce specifically designed for FCT-100 (And we can possibly make a package deal)

Asking for $3850 plus shipping&insurance to CONUS.

Paypal preferred, MO is OK. There is 3% fee with PP business transaction.

Thanks for looking!
