Wow what a shot! At least where you were, the skies are darker than dark! Something I haven't experienced since I was about 15 years old.
You're right that was unusual that the older amateurs didn't recognize the Unitron!

I was born in 1970 and I can smell a Unitron from around the corner!
Regards and clear skies,
PS - Awesome photo Clint!

Just because I like horseradish and blue cheese ice cream and climb trees with only my fingernails moving DOESN'T mean I can't be trusted, right?

So now I know that dollar for dollar, a $700 3 inch Unitron vs. a Sears 3 inch for $299 something HAD to be sacrificed. Fortunately the manufacturer of the Sears did pick keeping the optics up to par while sacrificing the massiveness of the mount to keep costs down. At least the Sears customers like me were able to get top quality viewing pleasure with the Sears telescopes. Not really a bad thing!

quality and performance ...only with respect to the optics
this is what really count. The rest is obvious !!!!
The point you can still buy a Ford and keep up with the Cadillac

Nowadays the Fords and Cadillacs look the same, LOL!

Something still needs to be done to help Clint restore his morale " The funny thing was that out of 20 or so folks not one said cool UNITRON! Know one knew what it was "

they don't know what their missing here in the Garden State:flower:.Looks like the unitron owners here on CN have all disappeared. I was looking for a good all out debate Sears VS Unitom. Even our moderator would not come out and play.The way I see it it's Sears 3 Unitron 1(clint) I think lenny's on our side with this one.Let's see what happens tomorrow's another day? :rofl2:

How many gun owners proudly announce they have a vintage JC Higgins Sears, firearm...NONE !! Sears was for the common folk, Unitron was for the snobbish, I mean rich. LOL
