This series of telescopes was introduced sometime during the late 1980’s and came in several models.  According to a 1992 price list:  “Unfold the mysteries of the universe with Unitron’s exciting line of Ed-U-Scopes.  They are extremely easy to use, making them ideal for the Mature Beginner or Younger Set.  Ed-U-Scopes bring you the universe.  Erecting prisms allow for terrestrial viewing as well.”

They came in three models:

Model 431R:  A 30X to 90X zoom telescope with 60mm achromatic coated lens “will allow you a clear view of the heavens or distant scenery with crisp sharp images.  Rack and pinion focusing and wood tripod add to the enjoyment.”
