I am impressed by Takahashi here in the USofA, the service was great! After talking to the peeps at TNR they sent me the missing link for my FC-100DL's visual planetary observing this season, the Takahashi Extender Q1.6x. I had been trying to find a used one but kept coming up empty, even my secret sources for unobtainium was dry for months. I gave up and called and ordered one and one showed up via FedEx truck. Of course now all of California is on fire and I can't see past my nose for all the smoke and ash flying around here in the SGV - San Gabriel Valley.
It's a curse I tell you!
