Thank you for looking! < Thank you , It is now in PENDING ! >

This time PENTAX 105SD Telescope is available ! PRICE REDUCED !! If you are interested in this scope, I can't guess next time I can find. so
I strongly recommend !

PENTAX 105SD; D=105mm, F=9.5/ The weight of OTA is only 4.0kg. PENTAX aliminum case is 4.2kg.
This Telescope is long,but very light weight.
I think this (compactness) will be very useful for movement.

I like PENTAX all Telescopes , and I think this 105SD is one of the Best Telescope among Japanese all Telescopes of the each generation I have seen so far.

For this 4 years, I have found only 3 OTAs of PENTAX105SD from Japanese Telescope market.

PENTAX 105SD has a interesting spec among all PENTAX Telescopes except PENTAX's early product.( for example, PENTAX 100, 85, and so on)

It's ' Long Focal length'.

Except this 105SD, others were all ( Photo& Visual Telescopes) ( for example, 105SDHF, 105EDHF , 105SDP,,, and so on)

This 105SD was released from PENTAX in around 1990 year.( This 105SD seems to be released about in 1990~1995)

At the same time, there were similar scopes like (Nikon 100mm ED F=12, Vixen 102FL , Takahashi FC-100N,,,)

All these Japanese line-up were ( around F = 10,with long focal length Telescopes).

Fortunately, I have seen real star by all the Telescopes ( Nikon, VIXEN, Takahashi, PENTAX(105SD).

However, I think all PENTAX scopes seems to have same taste about color......

I guess that the Astronomers like these 'Vanity Taste' ,so will choose PENTAX Telescopes.... I agree to it very much.

If there will be reasons for choice of PENTAX , It will be in (Vanity Taste and Good structure).I think so.

There is the Big and Happy event in this year, ' Mars great approach' in this July. I can recommend this 105SD for ' Mars great approach'.

-----------------------------------------
Recently, I couldn't meet good seeing for planet observation. However, very sharp and high-contrast image, it's PENTAX!
Of course, collimation is perfect, about this 105SD, I can't find any faults for selling to high- amateur in the world, especially the great USA gentlemen.
