Tak FC-100 OTA

I have a classic Takahashi FC-100 OTA for sale. This is one of the original series of fluorite scopes & is a great visual instrument. You can find a review of it here: http://www.scopereviews.com/page1ah.html

It comes with various Tak fittings including clamshell, 1.25" and 0.965" eyepiece adapters. You can see them all in the first photo. There is no finder.

It is an older scope & it has a few cosmetic issues which are as follows:
- 3mm hole drilled in the middle of the dust cap by the previous owner
- a few paint chips on the OTA
- the focus knob has a bit of play
- there are some dew spots on the objective. It would be possible to clean these off but I have not touched it since they do not affect performance.

This is a great lunar, planetary & double star scope & this model is very hard to find. I am only selling it because I yet again have too many scopes. I am asking $1,350. This price reflects the cosmetic issues I have listed above. Prospective buyers in Melbourne are welcome to come & try the scope.
