After much soul-searching, I'm finally selling my Tak FS-78. It's been a good friend but I've bought a larger refractor and have decided that the Tak must go.
These optics are truly excellent and the images are sharp and "clean". Planets are very pretty, as are brighter deep sky objects. It's very portable and easy to mount. Lately, it's lived on an EM-2 mount but for a while I used it successfully on a Bogen tripod... not an ideal arrangement at the zenith but it shows that it can be a very convenient grab 'n go scope.
Selling OTA, "clamshell" OTA holder, 2" adaptor, and Tenba case for $1050.
