I saw the Tak Starbase 80 system at NEAF and it won my "this is nifty" award. It just seemed very good quality and what all those rickety $50 to $100 systems are trying to convince you they deliver, but don't.
I'm surprised we don't have a lot of them around.
I've never been out with one under the stars. If I didn't have so many refractors already I might consider it. Maybe it's the kind of thing you buy, evaluate, mark down $200 and sell off, just so you can say you checked it out.
But my concern is I wouldn't sell it off if it was good.
If you've owned and/or used this under the night sky please do tell.
