For Sale: Takahashi FS-78 package

I have an FS-78 that I've used frequently for
guiding for the last 6 months or so. However, I
now have an FS-60C as well as an FSQ-106, and
it looks like the FS-78 will be neglected from
now on.

As it is currently setup (as shown in the picture),
it has dual Tak clamshell holders bolted to a
Losmandy universal dovetail (very rigid), a Sky9
reducer (.8, yielding about 505mm focal length),
FS-78 adapter for SCT threads, and a Starizona
Virtual View Adapter instead of the Takahashi
camera angle adjuster.

I like the VVA because it takes up some of the rather
ample back focus of the short tube FS-78. Without it
I would need a tube extension to reach focus with
some equipment. The VVA also gives me a 2" opening
with dual thumbscrews (and other attachments for
either 1.25" opening or T-threads).

I'm sure some people will want to buy only part of
this configuration, but I will give preference to
those who want the whole configuration (or most of it).

Current retail for included parts is about $2100 not
including shipping. I will sell the package shipped
in CONUS for $1750. If you don't want the VVA you can
knock off $100.
