Takahashi 76DCU

I have a Takahashi 76DCU, one of a series of 30 that came out a couple of years ago, available for sale.

its ability to break down into two pieces makes it a great travel scope.

I have done some imaging of globular clusters with this scope and it produces a flat field across a small ST2000 chip at the native focal length.

Along with the OTA at $1350, I also have available seperately
A CX 1.7 Module which makes this a very versatile scope $350
An MEF 3 microfocuser $250
Tube ring $90

The OTA, CX module and MEF3 comes in original packaging

There is a small chip on the OTA and the price for the OTA reflects this. I do have Tak touch up paint which I am happy to include gratis. I am not confident in this sort of repair.

In the image of the OTA mounted on the FTX (not included ) the MEF 3 is shown fitted. The original focuser will be refitted if the buyer choses not to add on the MEF 3.

There are a number of reviews on the web for this scope including http://alpha-lyrae.co.uk/ and also

PM if interested.

Cheers and clear skies.
