Quote:Last year I had asked Questar about ordering a Q7 with 1/10 min optics and they said they wouldn't do it fyi.
Quote:I've always wondered why the have not issued an anniversary duplex?
Quote:I ended up going with Company 7 as they also inspect and measure the scope optics and mechanics (possibly why they quoted a longer lead time, and another set of eyes never hurts) and offer many other full-service niceties like eyepiece swap, free one-day training course, storage until you can pick it up locally if you want, and they're near Washington DC which is easy to get to from the UK.
