Polarex Model 136 E finds new home!


Post by Unitron48 »

I was recently contacted by Vincent from The Netherlands....who acquired a Polarex Model 136E...a 5 inch Polarex on a field tripod. Both Unitron and Polarex were manufactured by Nihon Seiko in Japan. This is only the third field tripod mounted 5 inch Unitron/Polarex scopes I have located to date. Complete information on the scope is located on his excellent website: https://polarex.jouwweb.nl/.

Highly recommend you check it out!
