According to Texas Nautical where I had this scope cleaned last fall,
this is one of a very few multicoated FC 76 scopes to make it to the US. This evidently was a test model with the new harder coatings were applied to the rear flourite element. Have note from TNR confirming. Otherwise, appears as a regular FC76 except for the name plate (is completely in Japanese). Optics perfect condition but tube does have three very small scratches from the tube rings.

The scope gives excellent views especially of double stars up to 300 power (the most I can reach with my eyepieces). Perfect tight disk with one faint outer ring. I have split Orion nu with this scope. At low power can usually see Rigel's companion--quite sharp at low power. Has older Tak ring (less elegant), Tak 1 1/4" diagonal, and finder bracket.

I have a 7" Teleport that I am using more than this scope; yes the Tele gives better high power views because of aperture advantage. And I am thinking seriously about a larger scope project, thus the "for sale" posting.

Asking $1200 plus shipping. Includes scope plus Tak ring, Tak finder bracket, and Tak diagonal. Last price--I keep if no takers this time.

I also have a solid wood tripod for sale as well as Orion EQ2 mount that I have used with the scope. Price at around $90 for EQ2 with
its standard legs or $150 with NatureWatch tripod.

Thanks for looking and hope you have better weather than I have had.
