Thanks for deciding to show us this gorgeous scope here as well as on the Refractor forum.

Stefan,

I don't know if you are a member of our Unitron group -

http://groups.yahoo....tronTelescopes/

without looking at the membership list (199 members and counting), but if you are not you should be. I would actually like to use the photo you have posted here on our home page for awhile.

Regards,

Barry Simon, Moderator

Rich,

Thank you. Fortunately, there was no need to replace or to varnishing any piece. I only disassembled the scope, the mount, the tripod and the eyepieces completely. I removed the dirt and the old grease. The tube was like new after using car polish stuff. Furniture polish was needed for the wooden legs. Some adjustment, and my job was done...

Hi Berry,

Thank you for your comment. I joined to the Unitron group right now.

If you want to use my photo for your homepage, please feel free to do so. The direct link is:

http://www.photomeet...tmp/unitron.jpg

I think you can download it from there. If you have any problems with it, please let me know.

Best wishes
Stefan

PS: On what website do you plan to use the Unitron picture?
