Poster: ngc6475 (see all of this user's photos)
Description: This is a late 50's, East German Carl Zeiss Jena AS63/840 refractor on an alt/az mount. There is minor discoloration of the paint due to decades of being stored in a felt lined cradle inside a wooden cabinet. It has a heavy brass focuser and is marked Made in Germany on the focuser tube, eyepiece, and mount head.
