Hate to see this great scope sit in my cabinet so am opening it up to reasonable offers.

Recently purchased from a friend who bought it on here a while back. This is one well known quality scope and the few times I used it the images were amazingly clean and crisp. The glass is in pristine condition and Rack an pinion focuser is smoother than most of today's fine focusers. Solid as Tak is known for. It has an integrated CAA and comes with a 1.25" visual adaptor that has the twist on compression for EPs as well as a 2" visual back (for your 2" diagonal) with a sliding draw tube by TNR made for the FCT-76. It also has a prime focus adaptor as well to round out the accessories. I will also include a 5mm Takahashi eyepiece. There is an a additional hole drilled on the clamshell flat and ring for attaching a variety of accessory mounts.

I thought at the time it was a good idea to pick it up but I simply cannot justify all the high end refractors in my stable and have to move it on.

For the price you get:

- FCT-76 Fluorite Scope with pristine optics and some small paint chips and marks on body
- 1.25" Visual Adaptor
- 2" Visual Back with slide out draw tube
- A Prime Focus Adaptor
- Takahashi MC LE 5mm eyepiece
- Losmandy D style dovetail bar.

Price of $2150 includes CONUS shipped with PayPal fees included.

Will consider out of country but buyer pays actual shipping.

thanks for looking
