Takahashi Mewlon 250

After moving back to the suburbs earlier this year, this fabulous scope is not getting the use it deserves and I have decided to move to something more portable that is easier to take to dark sky sites. The scope comes with BRC250 rings and OPT dovetail plate, Tak IR finder, and a professionally made transport case. I have included the Baader M71/72 Tak-Adapter that replaces the standard visual back where you need more back focus (e.g. for binoviewer use).

The scope is 10 years old and has a paint chip as shown but is otherwise in good condition. The Mewlon is renowned for its build quality and the design almost eliminates any problems with dew. Although well suited for planetary use (3000 mm focal length), the aperture combined with a low power eyepiece gives good views of deep sky objects as well.

$4900 pick up or delivered in Melbourne metro area, or freight at buyer’s expense.
