According to Texas Nautical where I had this scope cleaned last fall,
this is one of a very few multicoated FC 76 scopes to make it to the US. This evidently was a test model with the new harder coatings were applied to the rear flourite element.
The scope gives excellent views especially of double stars up to 300 power (the most I can reach with my eyepieces). Perfect tight disk with one faint outer ring. I have split Orion nu with this scope. Has older Tak ring (a bit heavy arrangement), Tak 1 1/4 diagonal, and finder bracket.
I have a 7" Teleport that I am using more than this scope. And I am thinking seriously about a larger scope project, thus the for sale posting.
Asking $1300 plus shipping for scope plus Tak holder(final price).
Will include diagonal and finder bracket with scope.
I also have a solid wood tripod for sale as well as Orion EQ2 mount.
