Kansas Wind Power still shows a NOS TV76 with 20mm plossl, case, clamshell, and 2” Everbrite diagonal at $1499 as available.  I picked up the Nagler 16mm T5 they had and it was a seamless transaction

I have had large scopes, the last one being a 12 1/2” dob. I enjoyed those very much, but they were a lot of work to set up every time I wanted to view the skies. Needless to say, I could not keep them set up in one location. I had to store them in the family room. So this little gem is easy on the back for me. Grab, take outside, view and bring back in. Nice and simple.

This is an interesting stat.  How accurate is it?

My TV76 is on an original, stock Portamount. It 'owns' that mount, a perfect combination. Great for Grab-n-Go.
