New Standard dewshields are $225 plus shipping and are a matte frosty blue. This one is a shiny deeper blue that matches scopes sold by Questar in the 1990s. I'm happy to have items like this in my parts bin in case something comes along that I can improve with it, but if anyone needs this for their own scope (like the buyer of the recent Ebay OTA with matching moon map skin) I'm offering it here. This is about 8" long - 2" too long for Duplex scopes - only for Standard.

It has beautiful unfaded color and finish, and presents beautifully as shown in the four main views, which fairly represent how it normally looks. But it has some areas of scratches, and some missing start chart paint. All of these are shown in the worst light. Note that part of the label "Hydra" is erased, as is a small segment of the equator. After seeing the worst areas, go back and try to find them in the main views to see how subtle they are in most conditions. The scratches are limited only to the areas shown - most is immaculate.

I know that used dew shields often go for about $100, but this is irreplaceable and I am happy to hang onto this if no one needs it. I'm open to trades (such as Questar Brandons of 12mm or less, or your excellent dew shield of the wrong color).

If this ad isn't marked sold it's still available.

$7.50 shipping makes total $150
