Thanks for a all the kind words. This almost became compulsive until I finally realized that I would like the rec room back. That is a 450 SQ ft room that has almost half of it taking up with Unitron gear.

Hardly a "warehouse full" but to finaly see "your" pictures is, well, interesting.

To me it's a warehouse. Looks like one, feels like one and smells like one (cardboard had an interesting odor). However, if I would set each scope up it would require a warehouse. There are over 30 complete unitrons in there plus tons of parts.

Glad to see you came to your senses. Thought for a minute you were going to be one of these troublemakers I have seen on here

I don't think my "senses" had anything to do with what I said. It is more that you finaly supplied the photos many had been requesting and you had been promising for years.
As for being a "troublemaker" if questioning what some have to say in their posts is considered troublemaking I am guilty and do not have a problem with that moniker at all.

Never crossed my mind. I kinda doubt that would ever happen in a thread you started. Prove me wrong.

Well ... that is a mess of Unitrons. I must admit I would love to physically roam around in there for while. (Like a few days).

There are a few people that went in and never came back out so I would advise against that
Maybe that odor is not cardboard

I already made sure there were no four legged critters in the dungeon. However, how do I spot Unirats and Polar rats. Are they two legged with a big grin.

There are three species in this genus, Rattus unitronus, Rattus polaris, and lastly the dreaded Rattus humanis. The first two are four legged, pretty small, very friendly and make great pets. They have an affinity for this particular type of astronomical boxing as a habitat but dont do any damage. Rattus humanis however is two legged very tall and can be a problem. They actually remove parts from the packaging and try to assemble working telescopes. They are impossible to get rid of Mark
