I just wanted to post and tell an amazing tale, As you know I have been restoring a 1970 152 Well thru many hours of looking I was able to procure the following All new items, (source is a secret until the box hits my door)152 Unitron legs with bolts, 152 Unitron table and motor drive assembly USA 110volt. 4" lens cover, 2.4 Uni-balance assembly had to get it! And all this was not a amazing enough a 65 mm turn buckle nut with the bolts for the ascension assembly so I can hit 34 degrees mine has a 30mm to darn short bolt. This was a windfall of Items I didn’t think I would find but did! So if you’re an admirer of these wonderful works of art and express yourself in the restoration of fine telescopes, As dory says just keep swimming. And the ever-present (It’s so easy a Caveman can do it) comes to mind. Now if one of you guys would just ship me a couple of Uni-clamps I wouldn’t be thinking of carving wood ones and painting them!
