This is a rare opportunity to convert your Field model to a fully mounted and cased Questar Duplex model. (Only one "Questar Mount" has appeared in 20 years of Astromart ads).

This is a 1968 model in outstanding condition, brightly polished, with the RA ring in brilliant purple. Paint is pristine and glossy with no tell-tale scratches inside the arm. Base and arms are scratch-free with only one scratch at upper end of arm d(depicted) that might reduce with some polishing. Works with all Field models (newer Field models have a third hole in the base that receives a spike in the mount). Turntable has unpainted machined surface in excellent condition with minimal patina from use.

The kit includes original push-in legs in excellent condition. AC cord, stop-down ring, case key, and Bristol wrench are included.

Case is original leather in excellent condition inside ant out, with one small rub at the upper right edge (a bright spot toward the back of the right panel is a reflection). Interior velvet in fine clean condition, with minimal wear beyond the footprint of the base.

Not included are any optical elements, including telescope, eyepieces, or filters.

Base plate is marked and shows ordinary wear, and buyer is encouraged to buy a (~$25?) new blank plate from Questar that they or you may inscribe with a suitable matching serial number for your Field model.

Seller is open to deleting the leather case for a reduced price for those who have a case or prefer a Pelican.

Buyer pays $40 toward shipping and any Paypal commissions.
