COMPLETED - SOLD - Daystar Quark (Chromosphere) - MINT in box

Recommended Posts

For sale is my Daystar Quark, Chromosphere version.  It has had infrequent use and I can't justify keeping it. Works superbly with my ED80.  It was purchased in July 2017 from Widescreen Centre so is still well within the 5 year warranty period.  I am looking for £625 posted to a UK mainland address.  Everything is complete in the box including instructions, USB cable and power adaptor.  Payment by bank transfer please.

It would be good to see images taken with it if possible.

It was purchased from another SGL member who originally got it from WSC. I have only used it for visual at which it excels with the ED80. I always used my Lunt for imaging but not since 2018. Due to summer travel commitments my solar work has dropped off dramatically hence the sale. The original receipt is still with it.

Has it had any issues?

If it is a good example I will purchase it.

Not to my knowledge. Regarding ‘good’ I haven’t experienced other Quarks. It can’t be compared with my Lunt because the experience is somewhat different due to the 4x.

Hi Chris,

I have decided to spend a bit more and buy a quality tested new Quark just to be sure.

Thanks anyway.

Regards,

Simon

      Last summer I spent a lot of time observing and imaging the sun with a WO Z61 and Quark Chromosphere. Recently I have acquired a WO Z103 and if the sun ever comes out I would like to use this refractor for imaging as well. Question I have is with the wider aperture of the Z103, is it safe to use with the Quark and is an energy rejection filter needed?
      I previously read that it should be ok up to c100mm without an ERF but I cannot see any reference to this on now on the Daystar website.
      Thoughts welcome.
