NOTEABLE WITH THE LENS HOUSING IS THAT IT HAS ADJUSTMENT FOR LENS PITCH WHICH IS DONE WITH THREE EQUALLY SPACED SCREWS. AT THE OTHER END OF THE SCOPE IS THE BRASS EYEPIECE EXTENSION HOUSING WITH THE ENGRAVED DESIGNATION: “BROADHURST CLARKSON &Co., 63 FARRINGDON Rd., LONDON, E.C. THE TELESCOPE IS CONFIGURED AS AN ASTRONOMICAL REFRACTOR BUT ON THE TUBE BODY THERE IS A MILITARY “CROWS FOOT” MARK SO POSSIBLY COMMISIONED BY THE ARMY? THE FIELD TRIPOD WOULD SUGGEST THAT! IT IS HUGE AND VERY SOLIDLY CONSTRUCTED WITH THREE LONG MAHOGONY LEGS, EACH WITH A BRASS POINTED END CAP. A VERY HEAVY STEEL FORK SITS ATOP THE TRIPOD ON A HEAVY BRASS SWIVEL YOKE, ALLOWING FOR SMOOTH 360 DEGREE HORIZONTAL MOVEMENT AND VERTICAL MOTION.

THIS HUGE TELESCOPE IS BEAUTIFUL TO BEHOLD AND IS IN FULLWORKING ORDER. THE OBJECTIVE LENS IS BRIGHT AND CLEAR GIVING QUITE STUNNINGVIEWS OF THE NIGHT SKY.

THE BLACK COATING HAS PROBABLY BEEN TOUCHED UP OR REDONE OVER THE PAST HUNDRED YEARS OR SO BUT IT STILL LOOKS GREAT. THE OBJECTIVE LENS APPEARS TO BE INSUPER FINE CONDITION WITH NO APARENT ABRASSIONS, CHIPS OR CRACKS, IT LOOKSCLEAN, FOG FREE AND BRIGHT, THE OBSERVATIONS I HAD BEING TESTAMENT TO THAT. THE FOCUSING MECHANISM WORKS FINE AND IS REASONABLY SMOOTHTO OPERATE.THE BLACK FORK MOUNT HAS ADJUSTABLE BRASS BARS WITH TENSIONERSWHICH WORK VERY WELL WHEN KEEPING THE TELESCOPE TIGHT AND STEADY WHEN FOCUSINGETC., THE FORK MOUNT PROVIDES FOR SMOOTH HORIZONTAL AND VERTICAL MOVEMENT OFTHE SCOPE. THE BEAUTIFUL LONG MAHHOGANY LEGS LOOK FABULOUS IN A HIGHLY POLISHED BEESWAX FINISH. THEY EACH HAVE A POLISHED BRASS CONE SHAPED TOE.

19th Century Bardou Library Telescope

19th Century Bardou Library Telescope

Click here for more information and to buy.

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.

Large Antique Library Telescope by Dollond of London in Original Box with Tripod

Large Antique Library Telescope by Dollond of London in Original Box with Tripod

Click here for more information and to buy.

 

 A real cracker. Extended as in pictures 1 & 4, it’s about 102.5cm or 40 3/8″. Closed as in pictures 5 & 8, it’s about 96cm or 37 3/4″. You focus (extend) by turning the knob shown in picture 3.

 

 All brass construction with original finish, there is paint loss as in picture 3 & note at the ends of the two brass scrapes above the bracket, there are two dings, otherwise very good for age.

 

 Picture 6 shows the lens cap (2″ lens). Picture 9 shows the other end cap, reads “Dollond London” & the early serial No. “00669” (not clear in the picture but circled). The matching No. appears in the last picture.

 

 The smaller brass tube is built in the sequence shown in picture 11. No lenses have chips or cracks but the one on the right of the picture looks dirty, slightly white. With the telescope built the image is good.

 

 The last picture shows extra lenses. The one on the left reads “Astra” & is presumably for converting from terrestrial to celestial. The lens on the right is an opaque red, presumably for anyone silly enough to look at the sun.

 

 A good mahogany box, about 78.5cm or 31″ long. There’s damage/loss to wood at the base/back right corner as looking in picture 10. I’ll re-shoot the last picture tomorrow & show the damage. Otherwise the box is solid but has no key.
