PST serial # list.

In March 2008, sent it in to Meade and they fixed it. Came back with clean front lens. Still didn't notice any difference in image, though.

Serial # of my PST is 97320.
So, it should be rusty. The views seem good but I have nothing to compare them to.
Pic of objective is attached. Bought used but with original paperwork indicating 'scope was shipped April 7, 2005. So no warranty coverage.

First sunspot I saw was 1185 a few months ago.
Its my first scope of any kind and I love it..everything except the horrid focus ring and included 20mm lens. Maybe its just mine. I need a bigger scope already.

Serial number 94765, and I think it looks rusty. Images are okay though it but not 'snappy'
Just bought used, a week ago. Currently evaluating options regarding replacement of the objective from someone else's modded PST, or paying for a repair.

Thanks in advance for letting me know.
ps. First light, or should I say second light was terrific. Scope came with a TeleVue Click.Stop.Zoom 8-24mm eyepiece

The replacement ? certainly leaning away from another PST to Lunt,this rust problem is a bit of a fiasco , some people have had to return their PST several times because of this problem and it still seems to be rearing its ugly head, Dave.

Funny story of how this came to me. Prior owner (member of my club) had an older PST that succumbed to rust. He sent it back to Meade. They repaired it, shipped it back, and UPS lost it in Utah. It took months of waiting while Meade resolved the situation. Meanwhile he got impatient and ordered a Lunt 60. Once Meade and UPS resolved that it was well and truly lost, Meade sent him a brand new PST which was now utterly superfluous, so he sold it to me. Happy day!

Or is it clear , see through.
It was the early models with the metallic coatings that were prone
