I have recently become infatuated with Pentax telescopes after doing some research on them. To me, they seem nearly the quality of Takahashi and made in Japan. Unfortunately Pentax stop making telescopes in 2008. Also it seems not many were imported here to the U.S. There is some information here on CN for Pentax telescopes, but not so much mounts.
I found this website: http://familystar.or...5&topic=25782.0
It has a brief history on Pentax telescopes with great pictures, you will want to use Google Translate to read through it all but it is absolutely fascinating to me. Anyone have any experience with Pentax equatorial mounts? I have heard of the MS-2, MS-3, MS-4, and MS-5 mounts but haven't really seen any specifications on them. It would be really cool to have people post pictures and any pertinent information here on their Pentax telescopes and mounts. Thanks!
