Quote:You did good Scott !The mystic purple anodizing is gorgeous, wish I could have had that option when ordering ours. Although the star charts are standard on both the Q7 and 3.5" model, I preferred an unadorned finish on a Q7. The size contrast in your photo makes the 3.5"" Q look smaller than I remember? It's been almost thirty years since I last observed through one, but recently I was also able to purchased a 1971 model, and from a reputable member here on CN. Its blue in keeping with our Q7 but comes with the star charts, which my Wife likes. We are looking forward to our trip back to California soon, for the clear skies, and to pick up the 3.5" from my friend who it was delivered to for safe keeping. It will be interesting to compare our two when we have them together. Enjoy your Questars Scott, and Clear Skies.
