I have to part with my brand new Takahashi FS-78 due to the fact that I need the money to move:( This OTA is BRANKD NEW with not a scratch, blem or ding of any kind (always stored with Silicone bag). I purchased 3 scopes originally and decided to keep this one after star testing the FS-78, a TV-85 and a Pronto. The Tak blew away the Pronto, as expected, but also showed crisper detail on the moon and Jupiter than the TV-85, and no false color at all! So I had to keep the Tak.
Now financial problems are forcing me to sell this beauty only having used it 4 times:(
It comes with receipt from 2002, and Certificate of Inspection from Land Sea and Sky Texas Nautical Repair Co.
The OTA was purchased new for $1320 and I will sell it for $1100 firm. I also have a temba case and 6x30 finder bracket bought in 2002 also with receipts from Anacortes. I'll throw them in for $100 more.
I'll also take a cheaper achromatic and some cash. Intes, Stellarvue or Vixen.
