How to transport a TAL 1 by air?


Recommended Posts

I have a friend who wants to take my TAL-1 scope abroad and so I'm asking for advice on how to pack it. Assuming most of it will go easily in a suitcase, my first guess would be to remove the mirrors and wrap in hand-luggage. Is this a good idea or even feasible for a TAL-1 ? Or would they be safest left in situ?

Anyone have any experience of similar transport or any good ideas?

The main mirror will drop out of the tube by three small screws around the base of the tube.

The secondary is probably fairly safe.

Clearly the weight is going to be an issue.. get it weighed and find out about the cost of excess baggage.
