To begin our September thread, a longtime contributor to this forum, CHASLX200 has offered this picture of his favorite classic scope. It's his 1960 MI52,4" Unitron. Charles told me that he has been enjoying scopes since 1976. If you look close at the photo you can also see a 3" Unitron, an Edmund heavy-duty(1.5" shafts) eq, and a pier he poured to hold an Optic Craft with 60mm shafts. The Optic Craft held his 8"f8 Edmund after he rebuilt it with a sonotube. That's my kind of backyard! Thanks, Charles.
The basic guideline for this thread is to list ads and auctions for classic/vintage scopes and associated accessories that others may be interested in. Do not post your own ads or the ads of your friends, this includes items you may be trying to sell for someone else. We request that you do not post photos from ads. If you must have some reference to a photo in the post, post a link to the photo, not the photo itself. Concentrate on the item for sale, and not the seller.
Please post a live link to the item. Do not post "PM me for the link".Short discussions can take place about the items listed. When quoting a post, edit the quoted post to include only the part you are replying to. Do not post the entire ad text, or large blocks of it, without permission from the author. Keep on topic, please!
Buyer Beware- CN is not responsible for any of the ads or auctions posted here or their content. There are some scams floating around, so do your homework before pursuing any ad.
and this note from the moderators
Let's remember everybody, there's no one place that has all the best-used scope finds just as there's no one place that never has anything. All have something. No need to beat subjective matter, whatever the topic, into the ground. For the sake of all of us who love the classic forum, please keep moving the threads forward. Remember that many of your fellow forum members are already vintage themselves. Instead of restating your opinions over and over, consider sharing something new, insightful, or otherwise constructive to the topic at hand.
