This ad has been placed before, but now I am willing to ship. Takahashi Epsilon E-130, serial # 5098. See the photo. This f/3.3 scope is now discontinued. Virtually perfect shape and little used, just one time in the past year as my skies do not do justice to the fast optics. Comes with equipment as supplied (rings, top plate, 6x30 finder, and collimating tool). I also have a custom fitted Losmandy plate attached to the rings so it will slide right on to your G11 mount. Telescope is in a foam lined hard rock maple case. Asking $1400.00.
Also available with the scope only if wanted is a 50 mm f/8 photoguide refractor with rings for $150.00 and an erect image 8x50 finder with Tak bracket for $120.00 (these items will not be sold separately). I also have a Tak wide mount 35 mm adapter with an Olympus t-mount for $50.00. The scope is heavy so shipping and insurance will be $100.00. If you live within 600 miles of New Orleans I can drive and meet you half way and we can avoid the shipping charges.
Post office money order or personal check only (will wait for the check to clear). USA sale only.
Thanks for looking!
