MODELS 220 and 330:

This light weight camera was designed especially for astrophotography using the objective lens as the principal optical element.  On the Model 220, a special 30mm focal length photo-ocular projected a magnified image onto the focal plane.  It was removable for prime focus photography.  Three double plateholders for 3 and 1/4″ x 4 and 1/4″ glass plates were included.  The Model 220 came in two versions: Model 220A was designed for Unitron telescopes; the Model 220B was designed for scopes using tubes.  These first photos were provided courtesy of Dave Trott:
