I have seen a couple of the Star 12's come up for sale recently. There isnt much info available. The reviews are brief.

Its a 120mm f/8.5 doublet ED refractor. I found a couple of ads in 1991 magazines but no review.

Here is what I have so far.

1. a handful of ads here, search for "star12" or "Star 12"

2. www.scopereviews.com/page1.html#7

3. weatherman.com/scope.htm#Twenty-three

4. excelsis.com/1.0/entry.php?sectionid=12&entryid=177

5. geogdata.csun.edu/~voltaire/tmb/tmb1.html

6. magazine ads from 1991

www.astro-physics.com/about_us/adhistory/pages/1990novas.htm

This ad was in Astronomy but not S&T

7. www.yahoogroups.com/group/ap-ug , messages #7261 and #7277, (and 52909 !), 54819

8. http://www.cloudynights.com/ubbthreads/showflat.php/Cat/0/Board/refractors/Number/4000059/page/0/view/collapsed/sb/5/o/all/fpart/1

I place this here in case someone else is looking too.

Cheers
