Tsa 120

Takahashi 120mm refractor, complete with Nova Hitch Mk2 Precision Alt-Azimuth Mount (with QR adaptor for tripod). The package also includes a timber (hardwood) Heavy Duty Surveyor's Tripod with a machined adaptor designed to accept the the Nova Hitch.
The telescope and mount are in immaculate condition. The telescope was bought brand new from Claude at A.E.C (Takahashi distributer in Australia) late 2014. The mount was imported from the US (made by Charles Riddel who has since passed away). Only a small number of these mounts were ever made (they are no longer in production)

I will only post this item (within Australia) if the intended purchaser is prepared to pay full freight insurance and meet all packaging and postage costs.
Alternatively, feel free to create come and see in person
This is an extremely reluctant sale, however, my eyesight is failing which is really forcing my hand
The price includes:
Telescope, Finder scope, Nova Hitch Mount plus QR adaptor, Wooden Tripod, Takahashi Rings, Stainless Steel Dovetail Plate (made by Charles Riddel), Diagonal TKA-00543 to suit 2'' eyepieces, CA-35 Camera Adaptor (Canon and Micro 4/3 adaptor), Tak-Wide T mount

Price is $7500 or best offer (will not separate)
I am based in Albert Park (Melbourne), Australia
