I am the owner of a complete Unitron model 160/165. (I say this because I have the pier and the tripod.)The only parts missing from this near-complete piece is a screwdriver and the 18 mm lens. For the age of this telescope, it is in EXCELLENT condition. It has never had any refurbishing or detailing work done to it. There are minimal chips and scratches, it has normal wear, but no oxidation or rust. On the tube of the 2.4 inch telescope, there is a small dent. All included parts are original and the entire telescope works perfectly.
The pier is also in great shape. Normal chips and scratches. All doors work. I have the rods for both the pier and the tripod that operate the clock drive. I'm selling because I'm in the process of building an observatory and I need the money to complete it. SELLING THIS NOW IS IMPERATIVE.
This is the ideal telescope for someone who wants to own and enjoy a truly classic instrument. There will be no searching for parts - practically everything you need is already there. All cases included. Pickup only.
Please check out the photos and let me know if you have any questions. I tried to capture the quality and craftsmanship from every angle.
Pick up only.
