COMPLETED - For Sale: Takahashi Mewlon 180B

Recommended Posts


I am selling my Takahashi Mewlon 108B as I made a serious mistake – I started Electronically Assisted Astronomy and now I am after a flat field refractor. This Mewlon, being the B series, comes with the 7x50 Takahashi illuminated finderscope, factory front cover, factory dovetail and a 2” JMI motorized focuser which works both with or without power (you need to loosen up a tool-less screw to gain manual control).

I purchased this scope from Italy and you can see an actual review of this particular scope here (Google translate is your friend):


The ad from Cloudynights is here:


The scope will be shipped in the original box, properly packed and the original case will be placed in a bigger box, again, properly packed, via courier service, fully insured with tracking. I tested the scope myself and there is no loss of illumination or mirror damage which would warrant a recoating of this scope any time soon. The photos I attach I took when I mounted the scope. For more photos, just see the ad above.

I would be happy to part with it for £ 1,240 including shipping and delivery.

Very nice! I always wanted one of these. Maybe a bit close to my TSA-120 though. Probably should hold out for the 210.

Good luck with the sale.

Thanks! Horses for courses and all that. Quite a lot of fun dual mounting this setup but yeah, probably too close, although the Mewlon could be used for planetary imaging as well :)

      I went to my family house in the countryside and was able to take some pictures during xmas eve.

      Total exposure: 6h
      H_Alpha: ~3h (730x15s) --> R, G
      Oxigen III: ~3h (710x15s) --> B, G
      I didn't have a view on Polaris and could not spend too much time drift aligning (it was xmas eve after all :D) hence the short exposures. Moreover I dont have the proper connection rings to put my flattener on my mono camera so all stars off center are a mess :_(.
