Do you have the camera rotator (TKA23200) too?

      Hello and thanks for the add.
      I have recently acquired a TAK FC100DL (from the first production run, with the black focuser) that I have so far used only for visual with an occasional attempt at Lunar photography with a DSLR (canon 6D). The views are superb and I’ve been toying with the idea of trying it Out on deep sky objects (with the DSLR) by adding a focal reducer. However from what I can establish, the matched focal reducer for this scope is the TAK FC-35 which Carries a pretty hefty price tag.  
      Has anyone tried this combination? Or able to offer advice on wether its worth the expense.

      My personal Takahashi FSQ-85ED telescope is for sale, with a FeatherTouch 3.0" Focuser (~37mm travel) fitted. It's packed in a Geoptik Carry Bag alongside the telescope's original focuser and a bunch of Takahashi adapters to mount many types of camera to it. I used to use the included Takahashi CA-35 adapter ring along with the included adapter to M42 to mount my CCD camera directly into the FeatherTouch focuser. You may also use M42 spacer rings if you need extra distance. The included FeatherTouch focuser is significantly more performant and stable than the focuser that originally comes with the telescope, hence the upgrade I made to it, having had a couple of issues with the original focuser. The telescope is ready to be mounted, with its original Takahashi tube holder and Losmandy dovetail bar. 
      The telescope is in pristine condition except for a few scrapes on the outer side of the integrated dew shield, made by the motorised telescope cover metallic strap (the telescope has never been dropped or banged against anything). These scrapes are shown closely on the last photo attached below. The telescope has not been moved around much at all and has instead been placed in a remote observatory on a permanent pier in Spain for about two years straight. It is able to produce stunning astrophotographs of deep space. You may see some of my results here:
      The new price for this telescope with the included accessories is just over £3,900 at present. Thank you for looking. Any questions or offers are welcome.

      Hello 6" GSO RC users (mine's a TS Optics but all brands are similar)
      A picture is worth a thousand words.
      So if you have a photo of your rig with spacers etc and a DSLR attached, I'd love to see it so I know what I need to set me on the road to astrophotography.
      A big thank you to anyone willing to help.

      I have a celesctron nexstar 8SE OTA, to which I attach my focal reducer (0.63x by celestron), the a T-Adapter-SC, a t-ring and then my dslr. Does the T-Adapter affect the performance or use of the focal reducer?
