Thank you for looking! < This is final, Residual Price, Please don't think the next MT-160, so please examine this chance
for the purchase of Takahashi MT-160 reflector...>

I think when astronomer will choose it's Telescope, there must be reasons for choice...
Conversely, nobody will buy it's scope with no reasons.

Then, if there are people who will choose this MT-160 among many telescopes ( Reflectors) already sold , or now available on sale as a new Telescope,
what is the reason for choice ?

If I am a buyer , I will tell in such words, ( MT-160 is fine for visual and imaging, both of them, the OTA tube is made by iron, so
a little heavy weight, but strong structure. from it, I can expect the stable result of observation, imaging...
MT-160 has many goodness , and they cannot be got from other telescopes at some limited points..)

This time's cheap price is really exception.
I think about 300,us dollars , cheaper...than normal price.

However, even if this price is felt too cheap,from it there may be something bad points about this MT-160?
No, this MT-160 is in excellent conditions.

Really , I have never seen such great condition's MT-160 until today.

The support of sub-mirror is strong, so easy too make adjustment for collimation.

The maker , Takahashi is really good at making all corrector optics lens. ( for example, FSQ 106ED has many accesories , flattner lens, extender lens.from them,
FSQ-106ED has great popularity .)

MT-160 has also special design corrector lens. ( F=6----> F=8 ).
When observer watch the Moon, Planets using this MT-160, much better using Corrector lens.

From using Corrector lens ( included) , I can watch more sharp image.
So, when everyone buy MT-160, 200,it will be better to buy MT-160 with corrector lens.

In the case of refractor( Takahashi Classic FC model), after all, to use with Vari-extender lens , better.

Maybe Takahashi designed them ( Corrector lens for MT-series, Vari-Extendor lens for FC series) from long development period................

Certainly, MT-160 's weight is a little heavy ... but instead of it, stable observation will be possible.

Therefore, I recommend this MT-160 to all the person including now loving only refractors.
I agree. Refractor Telescope is all nice Telescopes, but to choose such reflector like this MT-160 is good ,too.

This may be the final exhibition of MT-160 from me. So, if being interested in this Telescope, I will agree with it.
