  1. Keeping the bracket but the finder is still for sale. Gave it a clean today and it is in good shape apart from a few small paint chips. £40 delivered to a UK address, bank transfer preferred. Also on UKABS.
  2. Still for sale. Would trade the bracket for a green one for a 6x30 finder.
  3. The reshuffle continues. For sale are my two smallest Takahashi scopes, an FC-76DC from January 2017 and an FOA-60Q from January 2019. Both purchased new by me from Ian King. The FC-76DC includes a nice pair of rings but no finder scope. I also wasn't planning on including the dovetail but could be persuaded if you need one. There is a small mark on the tube (pictured) otherwise in good condition. Optics never touched. £750 collected. The FOA-60Q includes the clamshell and finder scope. I can include the Berlebach Vixen-style dovetail if required - it has the usual marks. The scope itself is in great condition as you would expect as it's not that old. Optics never touched. As a visual observer it has provided me with the flattest field and tightest stars I have seen in any of my scopes. £1100 collected. If you were thinking about an FS-60Q then you could pick up the FOA-60Q for the same price The primary reason for the sale is that I would like something a bit bigger to help balance my binoviewers as I now use these 100% of the time. Both scopes have the original manual and certificate as well as the triple boxes - so posting at cost to a UK address could be an option. Thanks for looking. Al
  4. Hi Nico. It looks like it would be an additional £5 to ship to the Netherlands, so a total of £29. If you are still interested please send me a PM and we can discuss details. Thanks Al
  5. Will split if required. £40 each delivered to a UK address. Regards Al
  6. The Tak that Es was cleaning is mine, but it is not the TOA-150 it is the older FS-152. Thoroughly nice chap who did a great job. He mentioned how close he thought the two scopes are, hope you enjoy using it. Al
  7. Looking for a Takahashi accessory holder ring for a TOA-130/FS-152 (156mm internal diameter). Tak part number TKA27430. Ideally in green but wouldn’t rule out the newer blue. Thanks for looking. Al
  8. Hi @azrabella It won’t fit a Skywatcher shoe without some sort of adapter. It is designed to bolt directly to a Takahashi scope. The atlas is the Cambridge Double Star atlas. Regards Al
  9. For sale is an adapter to allow the 72mm Baader Clicklock adapter made for Takahashi scopes to be used with a Mewlon 210. Not sure if this fits the 250. Baader part number is 2558231. £24 delivered to a UK address, bank transfer preferred. Thanks for looking. Al
  10. For sale is an Antares 50mm finder and Takahashi bracket. I believe the magnification is 8x. Optics clean, bracket and tube have signs of use cosmetically but nothing major. £75 £40 delivered to a UK address, bank transfer preferred. Thanks for looking. Al
