I am offering for sale a 1963 Questar Standard telescope in strictly excellent condition. Serial number 3-1623. This telescope looks nearly new and functions like new as well. The scope was serviced and upgraded by Questar in June of 2016. In addition to the usual cleaning and lubricating the following was done: 1) the optics were given new coatings, 2) a solar filter for the finder was added, and 3) a new diopter adjuster/eyepiece holder was added which allows the use of standard 1.25 inch eyepieces as well as thread-in Questar Brandon eyepieces. I also just added a new vinyl carry case for the scope. (Note: the original leather case is also included if the buyer is willing to pay shipping on it.) The optics of this scope are in great condition, and I notice very little image shift when focusing.

Included with the telescope are all standard accessories: off-axis solar filter, legs for table-top use, power cord, two original Japanese-made eyepieces (40 ? 80X and 80X ? 160X), original eyepiece adapter, carry case(s), and original instruction book.

Asking $2295.00 plus shipping. PayPal preferred, but buyer to pay the 3% fee.

The following accessories are also available to the buyer of the 1963 Questar. I will sell these items separately only after the scope itself has sold and the new owner has declined purchase.

1) Full aperture solar filter. This filter was recently purchased and is in new condition.... $325.00
2) Davis and Sanford Model A tripod. Not perfect cosmetically, but works just fine....$85.00
3) Padded cover for Questar case. This item is new (retails for $130)....$90.00
