This is a continuation of the previous thread. Im locking the older thread but will keep it on for a couple of days.

A few reminders :

1) do not post your own ads or the ads of your friends. This is considered sale promotion in the open forums and this is a violation of the CN TOS. Please post such ads in the S&S forum or the CNC.

2) do not post photos from ads unless you have the permission of the person who took the photo. If you must have some reference to the photo in the post, then post a link to the photo, not the photo itself.

3) do not post the entire ad text (or large blocks of it) without permission from the author.

4) try to concentrate on the item for sale and not the seller.

5) Buyer beware - there are some scams floating around, so do your homework before responding to any ad.

6) CN is in no way responsible for the content of these linked ads.

Best regards and clear skies.

Yes, I'm not sure what to make of it. The plate on the case gives a name of 'Clarkson's Optical Stores' at 388 High Holburn but whilst I can find some mention of either Clarkson's Optical Stores or Clarkson's Secondhand Optical Stores on the interweb the address is always given as 338 High Holburn

eg here or here or here

It seems from this notice in the London Gazette from 1909 that Clarkson's originated from the Clarkson side of the partnership of Broadhurst, Clarkson and Towns. According to this site, when Broadhurst and Clarkson fell out with each other, Broadhurst moved to 63 Farringdon Road, EC1, naming the building Telescope House but trading as "Broadhurst Clarkson & Co. as Clarkson had a top reputation and Broadhurst wished to trade on it, as well as wishing to annoy Clarkson.

Whatever you do, Don't! cut the wrong wire

I think that rubber band across the fan is some high tech fan vibration suppression system.

It would be better if he wasn't asking $1000.

It's an old Coulter. Very representative of the early dob years. It's at least as much of a classic as most of the telescopes I see mentioned here.
