19th Century Bardou Library Telescope, made of brass and on a cast iron table top stand.

 

The optics are clean and in excellent condition, the telescope gives bright and sharp views, please note that

 

this is an astronomical telescope and the image through the eyepiece is therefore inverted. The telescope has

 

taken a few knocks over the last 150 years and therefore does have half dozen small dents and scratches to the

 

main tube, I think these just add to its charm. The long focus draw tube fits well and slides in and out nicely, the

 

rack and pinion fine focus mechanism does work effectively but is a little rough.

 

The overall length of the main tube in 38” and in addition the focus tube adds another 6”.

 

The objective lens is 3” in diameter.

 

 

A good looking and functional antique telescope by a well known French maker.
