I have acquired a Takahashi and it is time to put the CR-150 up for sale. This is the version of the Synta 6" refractor imported by Bresser of Germany they call the Phoenix with CG-5 mount and both are in excellent condition.
The OTA comes with both inner and outer front lens caps, dewshield, 9x50 finder, Telrad base, two-inch focuser, and the original accessories, the 1.25" eyepiece and camera adapter, 1.25" diagonal, 1.25" Barlow, documentation, and tool kit.
The CG-5 mount has an all aluminum tripod and does not have any plastic parts on the tripod as do some of the ones Celestron is now selling. It is of the later design with the ball bearing RA and has been cleaned and re-lubed and the weight bearing latitude adjustment screw has been replaced with a larger hardened one (important for those living at higher latitudes).
It has the slow motion cable controls, eleven-pound counter weight, and CG-5 dovetail plate. There is some paint chipped around the dovetail from being assembled in the dark, but other than that is in excellent condition.
I will sell the OTA and the mount together for $575 shipped USPS.
