Not sure the Q12 is exactly a prototype. I recall reading somewhere or another that NASA has been using one for years to film launches at Cape Canaveral.

Here is a picture of a Questar 12 from the late 1970's.
Taken at the RTMC in California.

Is that on a Byers mount?

Edit: I went back and read the whole thread; JohnH above stated they were sold on a Byers mount.

Green with envy~! (I can't even afford the mount!)
