I'm curious to know in what periodicals Questar ran a sustained advertising campaign.

 

There's the well-known and long-running series of ads in Sky and Telescope, of course. Questar also ran ads in Scientific American and Natural History magazines.

 

Does anyone know about other periodicals in which Questar ran ads on a regular or even an incidental basis?

I was a rep for Questar in the early 1980s and published small ads for a few years in Sky & Telescope and Mercury, the journal of the Astronomical Society of the Pacific.

For what it's worth, Company Seven says that, in the early years, Questar advertised in National Geographic. But a search this afternoon of the National Geographic Virtual Library did not turn up any ads in that publication.

They may be thinking of Scientific American...
