Takahashi Sky 90 2nd improved version. Condition is Used.
Sadly, I must sell another fine telescope. It has been a fantastic travel scope for grab and go.but age is starting to slow Me down.. It is the newer(improved) model as You can see by the picture of the collimating screws that are user adjustable. The finish is mint except for clam shell that has the usual marks from the knob/screw. Also there is a mark that is hidden unless You unscrew the dew shield and move back the retaining ring(in other words You wont see it unless You take the scope apart!) That mark is in the 3rd picture. VERY minor dust and optics are great.. . There is a little white spot in the lens pictures and that is ON THE BAFFLE inside the tube.It looks like a spot was missed in factory when they applied the black phosphate anti reflection coating.The focuser is margarine smooth.The dew shield cap is not tight (I will include green felt tape so that You can fix that if You choose). Comes with what You see in the pictures. It is in excellent collimation and if You pick it up I will guarantee that. Shipping(no matter how well packed) can effect this so I can not guarantee that You might not have to collimate it.. With this model collimation is strait forward and I will provide the new owner a link to instructions should the need come up.I will include an artificial star just in case.
.Shipping will be expensive because it will be double boxed with foam surrounds. I will only ship it fully insured and to continental USA. I will charge a flat $125 but I WILL REFUND any excess over $5. You are welcome to pick up locally and will include a bonus if I dont have to ship.
