Poster: Preston Smith (see all of this user's photos)
Description: This is an extremely rare Unitron model. Only a few were made in the late 1950s and early 1960s. They sold for a whopping $75 and were used to track Satellite orbits under the "Moonwatch Project"

I don't think it will be for sale ever. Preston will be buried with this one.

I remember these being for sale when I purchased my 114 in late 1958. Like so many things wish I could have bought one then! Could just barely afford the 114 at age 10.
