I am offering for sale a 1992 model Questar Standard with pyrex mirror and broadband coatings (serial # 2-10281-BB). This telescope also has the Questar PowerGuide which includes the built in 9v drive and RA hand controller. The original owner only used it 4 or 5 times within the first few years of purchase and it has sat since then so it is in new condition externally. The secondary mirror, in my opinion, needs to be recoated and the primary mirror either needs some light cleaning or has some coating deterioration along about a 60 degree arc on it's perimeter. Visually the scope performs very, very well on the Moon and planets. Everything else is in as new condition and is working well or has never been used (solar filter). If you have questions about specific components just ask. The telescope, case, Powerguide, off-axis solar filter and the Brandon 32 and 12mm eyepieces have to stay together. Everything else can be sold separately. The basic scope with PowerGuide is priced $1400 below it's cost new in 1992 and over $2000 below current cost.

Questar Standard, as factory equipped and with PowerGuide - $2300
JMI NGC Max Digital Setting Circle package - $ 300
Davis and Sanford Field Tripod (as sold thru Questar) - $ 225
TeleVue 1.25" Questar adapter - $ 40
TeleVue 17mm Plossl (old style - made in Japan) - $ 50
TeleVue 13mm Plossl (old style - made in Japan) - $ 50

All sales are continental USA only, preference given to payment with U.S. Post Office money orders or cashier's check. Personal check ok but will have to wait for it to clear. Shipping and insurance at your expense.

Thanks for looking!
