Unitron 60mm OTA With box http://www.cloudynig...itron-60mm-ota/

 

Someone looking for a really good Unitron 60mm should pick this one up. It's an earlier model known for excellent optics and a really good deal!!

Yeah it was a great deal, but I guess I was to slow on the trigger it was sold and shipped within hours of listing, it's gone like in no longer available bawling.gif

Doesn't matter.  I doubt the ad is real.  Dave R probably still uses that scope.

Under the red & white striped cloth labeled "sale" lies an Astrophysics refractor.  The dew shield is exposed with the name showing.  This must go on the tall pier.  Should not be on the floor!

Brass maritime telescope.

Marked: "White Star Line 1911".

Same company that built the Titanic, a year before its maiden voyage.

Crazy to me to see such things appear on goodwill.
