Wanted to check and see if anyone here would be interested in an old Unitron #114 for parts before I post it for sale elsewhere.

Here's the deal:

1) The lens cell is cracked -- just the cell itself, not the objective. The objective, however, could stand a cleaning. I can do this myself if buyer wants, or buyer can do it after receipt.

2) The OTA is somewhat beat up...

3) The dew shield is missing.

4) The focuser drawtube is missing.

5) The alt-az mount works okay but is missing the spreader. The clamp nuts for the clamshell are not original. The legs are shedding finish but a nice light sanding and oiling or refinishing should bring them back.

6) The original box is a disaster. Peeling badly. It is what it is.

I still need another dew shield for a 60mm tube -- I have another #114 that's missing its dew shield. If you have a spare one, PLEASE let me know.

PM me if you have any interest. I can send photos to a seriously interested party. I'll be *very* reasonable. If I don't get anyone here, I'll probably go to eBay with it.
