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.

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

Thanks gerd,
Looks like 1920 era from the
Three inch refractor link.
Mine also came with what looks
Like a tube prop stick with
Loop at one end...need to figure
How it mounts.
cant wait till my rib heals up
To try this and my zeiss out.
