Quote:Hi Brian,I read the description. It said Zeiss supplied the optical glass. I do not think it supplied the optics. Nevertheless, Busch has a great reputation and I would not be surprised to hear that you telescope is a great performer.Dan
Quote:I agree with Dan. Busch-Rathenow was well known for its excellent optics, as demonstrated by their 10x80 Flakfernrohr binoculars in WWII.Brian, that is an excellent find; congratulations!Regards,Julio
