    I wonder if “Cosmi Eye” refers to one of these tubes (http://www.oldradioworl…) used as tuning indicators. I don’t think I’ve ever seen one on a television – only radios. However, I once owned an old TV that would superimpose a purple line in the middle of the screen when the fine tuning knob was engaged. By making the line as narrow and sharp as possible, you could optimize your tuning even when you had a crappy picture.

    @Toronto: I think it was just unusually florid ad copy. The Sparton ad on this page is even more bombastic.

    Cosmic Eye, eh? Just the thing to watch The Outer Limits on!

    It sounds like an improved horizontal and vertical hold.

    Is 27 tubes a lot?
