Takahashi TOA-130

I purchased this telescope second hand, assuming my name would never come up for an AP-130... I don't need two 130mm telescopes.

Focal Length 1000mm
F7.7

This telescope was originally fitted with the 2.7 inch focuser. After I purchased it, I managed to find a second hand 67 flattener, which prompted an upgrade to the larger Feather-Touch focuser. (I have not experienced the same issues as Andy with his focuser - see collimation results from CCD inspector and image of NGC5139 taken tonight, albeit with a smaller sensor than Andy uses)

The extender can be fitted behind the flattener - frames the moon nicely in a full frame DSLR.

There are a few minor cosmetic marks on the tube, but the optics are clean.

Current advertised new prices from Claude,
TOA-130 (4 inch focuser) $11614
67 Flattener $1399
Finder Scope $395
1.6x Extender $539
CA35 Adapter (for extender) $130
Tube Holder $450
Total $14527

I'm asking $AUD9500, plus shipping. I will be advertising this on Astromart, hence the American coin in the pics for sizing of cosmetic marks. I have the original Tak boxes for shipping.

And another shot of the lens, because I've discovered it's really hard to photograph a lens...
