This is a very early Unitron Model 152 equatorial refractor, in good unrestored condition. I have had it for 20 years, but it is probably from the mid-1950s. Note the chrome-brass control knobs; no plastic. The optical tube has taken on an ivory patina; it has a few minor dents, scuffs, and touchups visable on close inspection. The mount performs smoothly and is remarkably steady on its heavy mahogany legs. The legs appear to be revarnished; otherwise it is substantially original. It has a 10x42 finder. The adapter tube can be configured for 1.25" or .965" accessories. Also included are a 7mm Symach eyepiece and star diagonal in .965"; the lenscaps are bakelite. A solar projection screen setup is included (one bracket is cracked but repairable). It gives pleasing views of the Moon and planets, consistent with legendary Unitron quality. My price of $1750 includes crating but not shipping.
