You know I have a whole tool box full of antique tools. Wonder if some of those wrenches I have will fit the Uitron trunion nuts?

It's not a 150 it's some strange alt-az model. The mount definitely is NOT Unitron.

It is a very early 150. I have one just like that. The 150 mount that was made later looked like 142 mount in steroids.

The first Unitron I ever looked through looked just like that one. It was fairly old then (late 60s), and probably was purchased by the college in the mid 50s. It was exactly that mount. It's definitely a Unitron. Odd that it doesn't have the 40mm 1.25 inch eyepiece. It would have been a Kellner and not a monochrome on a scope that old.

Judging by this old 160 photo the tool box (4 oclock close to middle) had only a wrench and screw driver. Just like in the 4" altz photo.

That's a great deal for someone.


Might not be a great deal if the objective is trashed, or the eyepieces etc.. I've seen and purchased many scopes where they advertised as "in great condition" but were far from that in the real world.
