Questions and AnswersQuestions and Answers
Q: Hi, I believe it’s a 14” not a 16”. 355mm is 14”. Thx. (7/23/21 5:58 AM)
A: You are correct. Good catch! I made the correction. Thank you. (7/23/21 7:26 AM)
Q: Do you have any of the accessories (eyepiece, diagonal prism, AutoStar Suite software, dust caps, etc.) that would have come with the telescope? Thanks. (7/24/21 9:29 PM)
A: Unfortunately no. On the original listing I included the PDF owners manual that has a parts breakdown which may be useful for checking availability of parts. (7/25/21 12:37 AM)
Q: Do you have the case? (8/2/21 3:01 PM)
A: The actual scope is in what appears to be the original cardboard box surrounded by a foam packing. The smaller pieces are in a small cardboard box with a foam packing. (8/3/21 7:47 AM)
Q: Hi...On the rear of the telescope I noticed there is no dust cap? (on the rear of the focuser) Has this been off very long or was it just removed for the pic? The internals are very delicate and can be damaged if any grit, dust or humidity were to enter. You may want to cover this opening with a piece of plastic and rubber band if you have no cap? Apx how long was this scope used by the College? Thanks (8/2/21 5:02 PM)
A: To my knowledge the only cover is the big one (approx 16" diameter). It was used by a former instructor but unknown how long it was used. (8/3/21 7:45 AM)
