The Takahashi BRC-250 is a 10" F/5 Baker-Ritchey-Chretien Astrograph that provides a large image field of 87 mm. This rare unit is one of the last ones made by Takahashi with a carbon tube construction, which minimizes focus shift with temperature. (Current production uses aluminum.) Standard accessories include a helical focuser, rotator and a 1.25" eyepiece adapter. Additional Takahashi accessories include an 11x70 finder scope and tube rings. Added custom accessories include a custom-made dovetail plate and a custom-made Thermodyne carrying case. Also included is a Finger Lakes DF-2 electronic focuser with USB interface and all cables and power supply. The system includes necessary adapters for CCD imaging with the SBIG camera/filter wheel camera line (ST-x/CFW-8). The picture shows all the items included. The inset at the lower left shows the focusers and rotator at the camera end.
The scope was recently collimated and all equipment is in excellent operating condition. Buyer pays shipping. New cost with all accessories was $14,000. Asking $11,500.
Thanks for looking.
