That's what I call maximizing greed by minimizing the telescope!





We had discussion on this topic a while back.
IIRC it didn't go well. nuff said

Goto's 40x-80x Astronomical Telescope Making Kit

Now that this has gotten to more than I would be willing to pay, I'm listing it as interesting. Hard to tell, but looks 40mm or smaller.

Missing the tripod tray and those are 160 legs. No shot of the right side of the mount to see if it is drilled for the 90 degree gearbox but it also has the graduated Super focuser so it must have been a 160. Sad.

Looks like TG gets outdoors once in a while.

I tried to buy this yesterday when it was first posted on AM. I was told it was available, but when I responded and provided my address for postage, I was informed I was 2nd in line. Oh well.
It's also posted here on CN.

I'm guessing that the folks on this classic forum have no one to blame but themselves for the ridiculous Unitron prices we are seeing. What was it, $405 for a tray light bulb?

Most astronomers I've asked about Unitron just say, "Oh, those old scopes they used to make a long time ago?" As they turn back to their APOs, SCTs, and Dobs.

I really wanted to bid on this one, I thought it was way cool. I was out of town when the auction ended. Didn't see anyone mention it on here, and yeah I know its a toy. But I still would have liked to have it on my desk, and it went for under $70.00. What a bummer.

I got news back and pictures the German scope around here. It had an objective that was full of fungus. I asked the guy if he would reconsider selling at a lower price and never heard back from him.

I missed it too! I've seen a few over the years, but I am always a bit late. They are totally cool. Good luck snagging one.

I have one of these and tried to sell it to get funds for other astro-stuff but, got really beat up with the low low ballers.
Mine is all original with the Polaris mount.
Will keep it until a nice trade comes along...
the shipping I think is the killer on these, hence the the low offers for just the mount ( I understand that )...I want it to stay all original to an appreciative owner as the classic it is...
This is not an ad to trade, just my thoughts!

I can't tell if that's a 60 or an 80 on that Polaris. Probably a 60 Cometron?
