25cm Royal Astro Newtonian Reflector from 1962

Royal Tokyo was an important telescope builder from Japan.  They're very well known for their refractors.  They where one of the first Japanese brands to launch large equatorial mounted Newtonian Reflectors.

The Royal Astro are system telescopes with a dedicated mount and accessories.  The telescopes are very well engineered and build with a lot af ingenieus features.

The large Newtonians (25cm and 30cm) wheren't available in the West because to heavy to export. 

The 25cm reflector we have for sale was never used.  The previous and first owner received the scope from his father who owned a Japanese company.  Since the scope was so big he never used it.
The 25cm Royal Astro is as new.  The optics are in perfect condition.
The mount works has the original clock drive who works flawless.

In 1978 the 25cm reflector was sold for $6.369.
$6,369 of 1978 dollars would be worth: $22,827.96 in 2014
