Here's a teaser....

Remember the Unitron Ads we all used to dream over in Sky & Telescope? At NEAF, you'll have a chance to see FOUR Unitron Equatorial Refractors.

A Two Inch
A Three Inch
A Four Inch
..... and yes, A FIVE INCH!

Napkins will be available at the display to prevent drooling on the scopes.....

(Approval has been received from Peter Indrigo of Unitron USA to post a picture of the vintage Unitron Ad).

Yes, but they no longer make telescopes. Just microscopes.

Thats great! Maybe I will see old Edmund 6" f8 reflector that I used years ago! I heard and see photos of famous Unitron telescopes and now I will have chance to see real scopes!

Very cool! I'll have to make sure I take a break from running the CN webcam to come see those. This was a great idea you Classics guys had!

I forgot about the display, and moved my '81 C5 (S/N 724) to storage at Deerlick...

Rusty, Be sure to pop in their booth. I was telling Preston all about you and told him to find you at NEAF. Yes, it was all good.

Looking forward to meeting you and Rusty face-to-face!

The idea sparked into a firestorm - and now here we are traveling to NEAF to show our vintage scopes!
