Thank you very much for looking!

This MT-160 (s/n; 91107) is in excellent conditions.

​I changed the MT-160's price to affordable price from deletion of some accesaries.

Now, everyone may think that ( 160mm diameter reflecter is too small ! ).
Yes, I agree with it's opinion in one side.
However, except Light--gathering power, MT-160 's star image is very sharp.
The structure is solid.
Newtonian reflector ; the center of field vison is perfectly No-distortion.
Takahashi's MT reflectors have all special Corrector lens.
When observer use Corrector for MT-160 ( or MT-200, MT-130) ,(Flat view) can be got
in addition to extension Focal length (F =6----> F8 ).

For visual using, ( especially for Planet , double star) usually , to choose long focal length will be
However, it will be hard to use all Telescopes with very long focal length ..........

I think that the method by Takahashi for such approaches about Newtonian reflectors were interesting and nice .
