I could have Unitron engraved into the hole cap.

and got a first light through her, makes you wonder when she last collected a few photons, the previous owner just used it as a display piece in his living room. Anyway it was on the brief side but i viewed the moon and Saturn. It definitely is sharp and has that snap to focus sweet spot.
I used the Unihex with its arsenal of eyepieces, the 40mm i
got from Johann gave a really nice, but i was really impressed when i tossed in a old vintage 28mm University Optics flat top Ortho, Wow! thats one sweet vintage eyepiece, if you ever run across one "Buy!it". I also tossed in a 20mm Masuyama and 16.8mm Meade RG eyepiece, the 20mm tossed up an incredibly sharp view, fantastic eyepiece.
Saturn was a beautiful gold color, and i could see either
a background star or possibly Titan ? it was a tiny tiny pin point of light at the 3 o`clock position relative to saturn.
Eventually i`ll do a lot more viewing through the 131 but it appears to be a real sweet and fun scope.
