CAMERA NOT INCLUDED. I am the original owner and was just not getting the opportunity to put this fine instrument to use. Prior to offering it for sale I sent it off to Questar for a check-up. It just completed Questar's Standard Service (Ser-110) for the Field Model Questar on March 26th. This includes parts removal, with a comprehensive cleaning, and adjusting. You can find a complete listing of their Standard Service on the Questar website. Tripod is in good condition, completely functional. Some corrosion on steel adjusting levers; the rest of the tripod is aluminum. Photographs are of the actual unit, if you don't see it in the photos it's not included. CAMERA NOT INCLUDED. Buyer pays for shipping and insurance.
