Classic Unitron / Polarex Model 114 FOR SALE !!!
Classic Unitron / Polarex Model 114 FOR SALE !!!

Classic 60mm Unitron/Polarex refractor. Polarex was Unitrons UK brand name and this scope is identical to any Unitron equivalent.

The scope is in used but sound condition and was manufactured (as near as I can tell) in the late 60s. Cosnidering its age its in good condition.

Faults listed as below
*Paintwork is pretty good - almost pure white but with a few small nicks caused by the tube rings.
*Small shallow dent about halfway up the tube, no effect on optics.
*Mounting rings show nicks and scrapes from use.
*Wooden box is scuffed / shabby and well used and someone wrote in felt pen in the lid as to EP magnifications.
*Finder holder rings have been repaired - these are very brittle on all of these scopes and need VERY careful handling.

I have not tinkered with this and the scope is very 'genuine' ie its not been in the hands of idiots. The lens was rather dusty when I got it but this has been cleaned super carefully with wonder fluid and the breath of angels so its immaculate,

Optically the scope is fine, the lens shows a good lustrous purple coating typical of Unitron

The scope is supplied with accessories as per below;
*Right Angle Prism
*Symmetrical (Plossl) 9mm Eyepiece
*Kellner 12.5mm Eyepiece
*Kellner 18mm Eyepiece
*Ramsden 25mm Eyepiece
* Solar Filter
*Original Polarex branded lens cap.

CAUTION - The solar filter is sold as a collectible item only and SHOULD NOT BE USED. SERIOUS DAMAGE TO YOUR EYES OR THE TELESCOPE COULD RESULT. I HAVE LEFT IT IN THERE AS I LIKE TO KEEP STUFF ORIGINAL BUT TRUST ME YOU NEVER WANT TO TRY USING THIS.

I am not selling cheap because this item is beloved by me and its painful to sell it. If it doesnt go though it will be broken up for spares and perhaps help to keep another Unitron in running order.

Its not a perfect example but it is a genuine item thats been loved by me as a collectible.

Its a rare chance to get one of these as they dont come up very often in the UK.

200 No offers - buyer collects because I wont risk a classic in the hands of a courier. The last one broke the mount for this scope !!!

I can't post high res pics here but if you would like better res pics email me or check out the scopes pics on Stargazers Lounge these were taken when I acquired it.....
