TAKAHASHI MT-160 Newtonian Reflector OTA w/Finder, Corrector & Clamshell
Highly rated Takahashi MT-160 F6.25 Newtonian OTA circa 1983 in very good condition, delivering legendary performance and quality craftsmanship.
The optics and coatings are in fine shape. The original diagonal mirror (w/small chips) has been replaced with an identical Takahashi mirror from another MT-160 (which took me a while to find). Cosmetically very nice, although the OTA is not perfect and has mulitple small dings/dents and paint chips, most of which are hidden from view by the clamshell in the middle section of the tube. The focuser (w/rotator), 6x30 finder, clamshell and end rings are very clean but show some signs of use. The original focuser pinion shaft (bent) has been replaced with a good one from another MT-160. Now the focusing action is smooth and precise. Everything is made of metal and the OTA weighs about 20 lbs.
This listing includes the OTA, clamshell, finder, CRT-MT corrector (F8.3) and both 0.965"/1.25" visual back. The EM-100 mount shown in the last picture is not included in this sale.
