Takahashi Baby-Q FSQ-85ED

I am having a bit of an Astronomy clear out. This scope is guenuinly like new, rarely used and comes in a custom Pelican case. Setup cost $4,500 in 2011 (new costs about $6k at the moment). I never got into the wide field so I am going to move it on and invest in something else.

- Modified Four Element Double ED Petzval design eliminates astigmatism, coma, secondary spectrum, spherical aberration and field curvature.
- The Takahashi FSQ85ED F5.3 Astrograph Telescope provides over 200mm of backfocus to accommodate demanding applications.
- Outstanding flat field with 60mm image circle and accepts medium format CCD cameras or Digital SLRs.
- The Takahashi FSQ85ED F5.3 Astrograph Telescope includes 72mm rack and pinion focuser with built-in 360 rotatable camera angle adjuster.
- High order of color correction produces outstanding images and extremely fine visuals.
- The Takahashi FSQ85ED Refractor is airline portable at only 12.68 long!

Kit includes;
Tak FSQ-85ED Baby Q OTA
Tak QE0.73 Reducer (Never Used)
Tak Tube Ring with a 7" Losmandy Vixen style dovetail
Tak E-180 (SBIG) STL Adapter
Tak CA35 Extension
