Viewing with my Unitrons!

Just thought I'd just mention that I spent time in my observatory last night observing the Moon with my Unitron 4 inch model 152 along with the 2.4 inch model 114 ota, riding piggyback atop the 4 incher, in the set of Unitron guide scope rings and Uniclamps. All the optics are nicely cleaned, collimated and aligned with respect to each other.
I had the Unihex Rotary eyepiece holders loaded with the Unitron eyepieces and all sharply focused on the Moon itself. It was quite a treat to see the Moon with two excellent telescopes at once.
There was no chromatic abberation seen with either scope at all and the views of the Moon was just stunning. I particularly enjoyed sitting back in my chair and just looking at my telescopes set up and pointing at the Moon. That Unitron is just plain old majestic!

Congrats on the scopes.
Clear dark skies...

Its also doesn't hurt that they hold their value so well.
Sounds like you had a great time, Lenny.

Hey JW How are ya!!?? You really like to flaunt that picture around, huh? Really, it is an image similar to looking out of the porthole of the 'ol Apollo missions, back when we were young!

That picture ... has been reprocessed with the latest and greatest v4 of Registax, using the new MAP feature.
Got the first shipment of the Unitron yesterday (meaning the 75mm guide scope, wooded box and all its accessories).
