Rare SV version of the famous FS-152 in perfect condition with perfect optics (Serial No. 4004). It delivers the goods in a way that only a two-element Takahashi can. I've had it side-by-side with equivalent sized APs, TMBs and TECs and nothing outperformed her, particularly her edge in eking out that deep metal blue/orange star color.

Everything original from top to bottom including the clam shell. The scope was always housed in a separate third bay of a clean, climate-controlled garage; was never left unattended outside, and not used for anything other than visual observing, glass has never been touched. I travel frequently between NYC--DC and can therefore hand-deliver (my preferred method) but would be willing to ship (in which case add $150 for materials to prep it for safe transport). $7000 clean (plus any 3rd party fees, if any, and actual shipping cost).

I do have optional accessories worth considering that were purchased to specifically mate with this scope and that functioned perfectly (with all Ethos EPs and a Baader Mark V binoviewer):

- 155mm tube rings set for FS-152 (price TBD)
- Feathertouch 3.5" dual speed focuser, 4.5" DTT, brake, end cap (FTF3545B-A) (price TBD)
- Adapter 3.5" for Takahashi TOA 130/FS 152 telescopes (A35-503-TOA 130) (price TBD)
- End Cap 3.5" w/2.0" compression ring opening (price TBD)

Happy to demo. I am in NJ, Exit 2 off the turnpike just south of Philadelphia/across the river from Wilmington, DE.
