Questar Duplex 3.5 (1973) Pyrex Mirror, Broad Band Coatings. Serial number 3-DP.5507-B.B. This was left to me by my father who unlike me was an amateur astronomer and birder. Comes with two lenses which are 16MM and 24MM FLAT TOP (very rare) Brandon EFL USA, Questar Front Lens Diaphragm, Sun Filter, Lens and Dew Caps (non-moon map, star chart), all three table legs (sides and center adjustable), and a tripod-Floating Action Model A made by Gavis and Sanford, the original case and an owners manual which I requested from Questar several years ago. Everything is in excellent condition and working shape aside from the following: The case does have couple of corner chews from a puppy although not affecting usage. Good condition cases from the 1970's can be found for around a $100.00. The scope has been equipped with the metal declination lock instead of the indicator. You can tighten down the screw on it and the scope won't move when you cock your camera. The lock is missing one of the two very, very smalls screws although this does not affect its use. I have none of the camera accessories. You can get a great look at everything from the photos. I would like to know that this scope is going to a good home as it has sentimental value to me. Shipping and Ins is to be paid by buyer and to be determined collectively for the safetest transaction. Will accept pay pal or money order, prefer pay pal. Contact me for more photos, questions and or concerns immediately.
Asking $2,300.00 (neg, obo)...
