Dave Komar currently owns this pristine model.  The previous owner, Jon Miles, accomplished an exceptional restoration on this complete Model 145C.  The telescope was purchased originally in September, 1971.   Details of that restoration can be found on a thread in Cloudy Nights classic telescope forum: http://www.cloudynights.com/topic/402805-my-last-classic-scope-unitron-145c/.  The telescope was ordered with the Astrocamera Model 220, a Herschel Wedge, and a Uniclamp Camera Bracket.  Jon upgraded the focuser from the standard to the deluxe and added an 8x30mm viewfinder as well as an additional Unihex for the guidescope and a complete set of eyepieces.
