I'm not sure, maybe Lenny or one of the Unitron owners can chime in.

It's an Alt-Az. It's says "No 11" on the box.

:question:

Unitron scope (only one focuser knob, like my Polarex 114), but I wonder if the casing is original. The one which says Unitron and No. 114 is probably the case for the mount. The OTA however does not fit in it's case. Even the drawtube is removed te make it fit....

The original OTA case is longer.

I've seen at least three different box types for the 114, so there'a a good chance that one is 'original'. Note that it's listed as a 62mm objective and not a 60, so it may have the correct 'original' box.

114.
Look carefully under the tape on the box. I believe you will see a faint "4"

Strange. A telescope case in wich the telescope it is meant for doesn't fit... ;)
