Due to my extremely busy career of producing artwork and running in auto shows, I just do not have time for this exotic refractor setup anymore. And so here it is:
FCT-150 with standard 11x70 illuminated finder with spare 11x70 finder bracket for FC-60 ota or another finder, massive ring assembly with the remarkable Takahashi TGM-2 guide mount, An extremely rare FCT-150 spare dew shield with the built in baffles, AP 2" Maxbrite diagonal, rare Tak quintuplet turret, all the extensions you will ever need including a few I have had custom fashioned, and a professional flight/travel Anvil Case with heavy duty custom foam bed and dual locks. I'm not going to tell you much about the performance of this apochromat except that it will produce some of the most exotic images of the universe available in private ownership in the world. $14,000. (Please note I will not separate these items!) PRICE DOES NOT INCLUDE EM-500 MOUNT.
I would perfer the buyer to meet me somewhere to pick this up. It is very heavy and insurance prices would be phenomenal (But I am willing to ship upon buyer's expense). I am willing to drive up to 550 miles the first 300 miles free. After that you'll have to cover my transportation cost.
You may call from 11am-4am on my home phone (509)-891-5453 or my cell (509) 954-7899 and ask all the questions you wish. I have multitudes of photos of this setup upon request. Very serious inquiries only. I will not trade.
