Hi to all. I've a request from you.
A friend of mine has a Questar and the serial number is the following F-2975-BB. Please, can you tell me the year of production?
Best Regards from Italy

From my records it seems most likely that this Questar was made in 1982 or 1983. The cost new in the United States was either $1675 or $1799 depending on which year it was purchased. Prices for exported Questar were probably 300 to $500 dollars more than prices quoted above. You can always send an email to Questar and they can tell you the actual date.

Hey Ralph, I picked up a field model recently. Serial number F-339, I'm guessing it's one of the early ones. Any clues how old it is. It has the arrows inside of the eyepieces.

My records are a little thin from that time period, but it looks as if it from 1966 give or take a year. You can always contact Questar to get the actual date. The eyepieces you mentioned were used on both the Field Model and the Standard and Duplex Questars at that time.
