Takahashi Sky Patrol 1980’s version. This is a little gem in every sense of the word. Everything works as it should. Beautiful mount in nearly pristine condition with a few very minor blemishes.

The unique Takahashi 40mm guide scope is included. It has a few paint chips but appears to be perfect in every other way. The optics are superb as you would expect. This has a .965 compression fitting on a sliding drawtube. There is no guiding eyepiece provided. The innovative mechanics if the guide scope mounting system allows for a huge variety of guide star choices.

A polar alignment telescope is built into the RA axis for precise alignment and perfect tracking. The reticle is clean and dust free. Powered by 4 D batteries with RA slow motion hand controller. Manual slow motion DEC. Mounts on standard 1/4" x 20 tripod. The included original travel bag with shoulder strap is in very good condition. The vintage Nikon camera shown in some pictures is not part of this sale.

The mount is paired perfectly with a tripod by the renowned German manufacturer Linhof. Top quality here as well. Very well made, of aluminum and in nice condition. The length while folded is 16 inches; fully extended 45 inches.
