I have a superb Takahashi FC100, serial number 8139, that is matched to an EM-10 USD II mount, serial number 01008, for sale. This FC100 is the better of the two FC100s reviewed by Todd Gross in his 70 telescope mini review site. Email me for the URL if you haven't seen it. The scope comes as shown with lens cap, 1.25 adaptor, 1.25 Tak compression lock diagonal, and the Takahashi tube clamp for this OTA. I am keeping the finder for use with a TOA-130, so it is not shown nor a part of the deal. The scope comes with a wooden storage case that is not suitable for shipment, but works well for keeping the dust off the OTA. The mount was purchased new in 2002 and includes cables, hand controller and one counterweight. An additional counterweight is available for additional cost. Selling to help pay for the TOA. This is a perfect combination for someone wanting to get serious about a 4” refractor. And the FC line in my opinion remains superior to the FS series with the fluorite element protected in the back of the doublet. $4000 plus actual shipping costs. (This is close to 30% off discounted cost new.) US sales only.
