This is a vintage Unitron Super Focuser. It was probably not part of a Unitron telescope but was sold as an aftermarket item. This is supported by the fact that there is no printing on the focuser except for the Unitron brand. It is in good operating condition but the paint shows its obvious age. It is fully functional and there is no major damage.

The threads are about 70x1mm. I have tried this with a couple of Unitron 4 inch scopes and it screws right in so you could also use it to step your classic Unitron 4 inch scope up to 2 inch eyepieces. You could also use it to put a big Super Unihex on a Unitron that has a standard focuser.

This focuser is quite beefy. The old timers used these so they could “lengthen” a shorter telescope tube by using a longer drawtube. It’s an elegant solution when your tube is a foot too short for your objective! It has replacement locking knobs that look and work fine but are not original. It comes with either a short adapter to accept 2 inch accessories or the long 12 inch drawtube which also accepts 2 inch accessories. Neither of these is original Unitron. If you want both please add $20.

This rare focuser makes a classy addition to a vintage refractor or can be used to beef up your larger Unitron telescope. If you think the price is too high please make an offer.

US sale only. I will handle the Paypal fee and ship free to CONUS.
