Looking at the japanese price, I bet this will be priced around S$2k. I wonder if McGill will sell the mount separate from the scope, quite a nice mount for 3-4" short fl refractor or 6" mak (maybe even a c8?).

Should have a look at it!

I try to make it cheap for a launching Price of just S$1,650.00 for Table Model as the one shown in the photo and $1,850.00 for Tripod Model. Sample arriving from Japan next week, pls sms me for a appointment to view, I can even bring it to a location where most interested parties can view.

A further discount of 5% will be given for group purchase of 5pcs and above.

Cheers ! :lol:

The price is for the whole set, should be here by next week, the scope is a 100mm dia MAK and the mounting method is actually secured by a dovetail like all other Vixen mounting, which means you can replace the scope with other smaller scope like the W.O. 66SD APO, but you need to purchase a Vixen Universal Dovetail Plate at $120.00 and you can be at your choice of scope.

Cheers :lol:
