I bought this about a month ago on AM (ad #227168) with the intent of using this as a guidescope. I no longer need a guidescope since I have delayed my foray into imaging for the time being. Other than inspecting the scope to ensure it is in excellent condition, it has not been touched. To quote the original ad "the scope comes complete with the Tak Camera Angle Adjuster, custom wood Takahashi case, and all caps and warranty certificate. 630mm focal length (F8). This is the Japanese market version with FS60C type lens cell, it's about a pound lighter than a standard FS78. This one is in mint condition." Selling for the price I paid: $895 plus shipping. Shipment via Fedex ground should be about $25 for Continental US. I will post a pic of the scope tonight. In fairness to prospective buyers, the first person who commits to purchasing the scope has a deal.
Thanks for looking and clear skies to all!
