Takahashi FC 100 DL for sale - **NOW SOLD**
Simply the best optical performance of any telescope I've ever used - and that's a lot in over 45 years owning and using telescopes. Only for sale due to current financial position. If I win the lottery this weekend the ad will be removed!

This was bought from Ian King at Astrofest in February 2015 as an ex-demo telescope. Instead of a serial number engraved on it, it actually has DEMO engraved on it. It also came with the wrong designation around the lens - referring to it as being the f7.4 version, when of course it is one of the f9 limited edition first run. This has never bothered me, in fact I've been proud of its uniqueness, though you may be able to replace it if you really wanted to - personally I wouldn't bother. The focuser is super smooth and optically it is stunning in every respect.

For sale is the optical tube, 2 inch and 1.25 inch fitting, Tak bespoke longer version tube clamp (FAR superior and easier to use than any rings I've ever used), Take 6x30 finder and GEOPTIK high quality soft case.

To buy this new in the UK will cost you 2858 (for as long as dealers have it available) - this is the cheapest I can see it offered at least. And, this does NOT include a case of course. The price of this well proven telescope is 2150 INCLUDING the case.

PLEASE NOTE - I'm afraid I will not post this scope to any destination, the scope must be collected in person from Oakworth, West Yorkshire or it can be collected from Kelling next week.

I may accept a SW Equinox 100ED, or SW 100ED pro in part-ex, but this would be subject to them being in excellent optical and mechanical condition and complete. (possibly a 120ED)

I will add some pictures here as soon as I can, though this may not be until Sunday.

For anyone who wants to try the scope out, it will be available at Kelling from Thursday 21st until Monday 21st September. Please contact me for pitch details. Also please get in touch if you want any more information. Of course, if sold before Thursday the scope will not be available at Kelling.

This scope has also been advertised elsewhere.

Thanks for your interest and sticking with my rather long-winded ad !!

****SPECIAL PRICE - 1990 if deal agreed by Sunday 24th September when I'm at Kelling. This price cannot be guaranteed after this date*****
Price: 2,150
