SOLD Selling my "as new" FC 100DL at about a 25% discount. If you want only the OTA with its original TAK parts as it arrived from Takahashi, it is $1850, double boxed... includes the single speed focuser with 2"/1.25" adapter, objective cap, Tak 1.25" plug. No finder or bracket, no rings, dovetail, etc. Buyer pays shipping cost, I'll ship it by whatever means you like.
But I built this scope the way I thought it should be put together, so if you want it as seen in the photos, it is $2460 which is almost a 30% discount from original cost. For $2460 you get:
1. The Tak OTA, FC 100DL, f:9 with perfect objective, never cleaned and no dust, plus the original focuser and other parts; NO dings, nicks, scratches or blemishes of any kind.
2. K-Astek Rings and Losmandy size K-Astek dovetail from Japan, beautifully machined and as new ($220 new) and includes a 1/4" aluminum top plate if you wish to add an accessory.
3. Baader Clicklock 2" eyepiece holder with the necessary Tak adapter ($106 + $35 new). The Tak 2" eyepiece holder is functional, but not elegant and uses two thumbscrews to hold the 1.25" adapter or your diagonal leaving the dreaded "dimples," no thank you. The Clicklock is elegant and extremely functional
4. Starlight Feathertouch Micro, two speed focuser ($351 new), which makes precise focusing buttery smooth.
5. A custom green laser pointer with mounted bracket ($135 new) made from a polished stainless steel tube with SS hardware atop a block of polished aluminum. This serves as extra weight in the rear to keep the moment of angle on the scope's swing to a minimum; notice in the photos that the center of balance is rearward, which is most helpful when observing. This is a visual scope and the laser makes pointing the scope very convenient... much easier than looking through a finder scope or RDF.
6. FREE SHIPPING. YES, buy the scope as pictured, for $2460 and I'll pay for FedEx Ground shipping in CONUS. New, this scope, JUST THE OTA, is currently listed for $2680... my price is less than the cost of a new OTA and you get a working scope with excellent accessories that is in brand new condition.
This offer does NOT include the mount/pier, diagonal, eyepiece or the Tenba case. Why am I selling this great scope? I just haven't used it in the two years I've owned it. My primary refractor is a TEC 140. My travel scope is a TV-60. This scope is not small enough to travel with me and it is not big enough to compete with my TEC. And I'm 70! So it's time to let it go. Please look at my ratings and believe when I say this scope is not distinguishable from a new one.
I'll agree to split the PP fee, as it benefits us both.
Thanks for looking and Clear Skies.
