  5. Hi, Having completed the recent refurbishing of my man cave outbuilding, I'm having a clear out of various "stuff", as follows: SOLD 1. Vintage Unitron Altazimuth mount. Dating from the late 1960s, this originally came with a Unitron 114 scope which I sold a while ago. It's in excellent cosmetic and operational condition for its age, and is just SO great and easy to use.

Most had fixed dew-shields, all were bulky for their aperture. All had a strange but classy cast ‘man
  9. One more..this is my avatar pic which I took a couple of years ago..I just like the way the shadow fell on the scope. Dave
  10. Had the FS128 out all day on Friday as I was painting the floor of the outbuilding she lives in..saw the almost full moon rising behind one of our trees..also a shot of the refurbished barn outbuilding with new concept floor now painted and sealed. (I did stop out for a nice session on Orion, but the moon was literally too painfully bright to view directly!) Dave
