The Questar has long been regarded as the finest personal telescope in the world. It is the premium Zerodur optic model with Broad Band coating. Optics are crisp and clean to the edge on both surfaces. Mirror coatings are not degraded. Serial number 1-Z-8370-BB (see photo for base serial number) In addition to the telescope's legendary resolution, flatness of field and contrast, the Questar has integrated features that are unavailable with other telescopes. It comes with two eyepieces, both a 24mm and a 16mm. It provides three power changes per eyepiece, an internal finder and two telescopic powers. Included also are a star-diagonal prism, solar filter for finder lens, off-axis glass solar filter, and focusable eyepiece diopter. The barrel rotates for viewing height adjustment and is silk-screened with a functional Moon Map. The carrying case looks virtually new and is of the fine grain glove leather type. The removable dewcap is a star chart. The equatorial fork mount is brushed cast aluminum, aircraft polyurethane painted, with friction drive alt-azimuth controls. It includes an AC powered synchronous clock drive motor and declination clamp. The setting circle for Right Ascension and Declination is fully functional. The RA circle is universal for northern and southern hemispheres. The Standard stores in a carrying case that has pockets for the included tabletop legs and AC adapter cord. This scope can be passed down as a family heirloom and will last unknown generations. Invest in something you can use and sell should you lose interest. Or pass down to the next generation. This is the cream of the crop in vintage questar telescopes. Will be shipped fully insured and double packed.
