Takahashi FS128, 1997 version (serial number 97004)with 2.7” focuser and 2” compression ring adapter. Optically perfect, mechanically excellent with 3 pinholes in the paint on the leading edge of where the ring clamped and about a non-through scrub of about 1mm on the dewshield in the OTA paint if you look hard enough, certainly no dings or dents. Zero false color in focus to my eye, exceptional star test as would be expected and amazing contrast – just a spectacular scope optically and mechanically. Also includes the Tak dewcap, Tak clamshell ring – the ring is in excellent mechanical condition but was painted black to match the mount it was used with and does have a few paint chips on it – and an Orion padded scope carrying bag that fits the FS128 very nicely (the bag in in excellent condition as well).
