    Default Does the 8" Meade Starfinder have a "model number?"



    Just purchased my first Dob, to re-launch my astronomy hobby after 25 years absence. Looks to be a good starter scope which I got at a bargain as it's covered in vintage 80s-90s stickers. In honor of one sticker I've dubbed it "Bevis". So question #1 -- does the 8" Meade Starfinder Dobsonian have a model number?

    I couldn't find any part numbers listed in the 1999 version of the manual. Here's a link to it.
