My club--and the science center that hosts us--had a swap meet at our most recent meeting. Most of the stuff was junk from hobby-killer scopes that were donated to the group, although the parts might've been salvageable. But there were several gems among the junk, as there always seem to be. Among them were three Questar 3.5" "field scopes" in crappy old cases and with little documentation, but it's known that these are the three remaining from a purchase of twelve (!) that the science center made a few decades ago.
Also among the lot were a couple of old refractors, from which my eye fell on this one.
My question is this: the wooden box says it's a Unitron. The focuser says it's a Unitron. But the lens cell doesn't have the engraving on it that says it's a Unitron. (It also has the standard Unitron-style tripod legs.)
Is this, in fact, a Unitron?
If so, it was a steal at $60, although I'm a little concerned about how the optics will clean up.
