Awesome! Now I don't feel so guilty about depleting that collection by one mount. Better this gear be in the hands of someone who appreciates it rather than buried in a closet. Don't see any folded 75mms- certainly there's one there?

I really love these Unitrons. Only thing I do not love is that they had a different factory make the mounts from year to year. Or the machinest had more saki that day

I did not take pictures of the 40mm's Dave because I knew you would be depressed

This is about 10 years of mad buying. The UPS guy was getting a bit upset. The Fed Ex guy was OK with it. The postman is getting slower every day. Love those priority flat rate boxes. One day one came filled with counterweights. He looked like he aged that day

Better all those scopes and parts are with you, rather than with someone who wouldn't appreciate them or know their value.

Only problem is that I will be moving in a couple of years so I need to start moving a good portion of this gear out.

I do not think so. That will mean someday someone will be selling all this at my estate sale.

Best to part with what you can live without, then, and keep what really matters to you... unless, of course, it all really matters to you...

To be honest there is no material matter I cannot part with.

I don't live far. Let me know when you are moving. I'll be glad to help.
