Takahashi CN212 Newtonian-Cassegrain with 7x50 Takahashi view finder and EM-10 Takahashi Mount with long wooden tripod and Shimano clamps. This is a highly respected, serious telescope with professional optics. Resolving power is 0.55 arc-second, and limiting magnitude is 13.4. Its unique design enables it to be used interchangeably without recollimation in long focal length mode (Cassegrain-2630mm: f/12.4) for deep sky and planetary work, or short focal length mode (Newtonian-820mm: f/3.9) for wide field of view. It is also an excellent astrograph and, at 34 in. long and 19 lbs., is very easily portable. Its performance is said by many to exceed that of consumer scopes that are twice its size.
This telescope has been used exactly three times, no more no less. Original plastic protection is still on the electronic control box. Newtonian secondary has not been installed, and is new in box. Takahashi ocular and diagonal are new in box. Large accessory mounting plate, large counterweight, numerous filters and lenses, including 4 Plossls and one Nagler. There is not a blemish anywhere. This telescope is truly an exceptional buy. Paid close to $9K. Will sell for $4,500 plus shipping.
