This Mogey is about half original and half reconstruction. It is not a restoration because some of the parts (like the focuser) do not make any attempt to appear authentic, though they do reflect the spirit of the telescope. The authentic Mogey parts are the objective and cell, the tailpiece, the latitude adjustment mechanism, the RA housing, the RA setting circle and the slow motion rod. The rest was all fabricated by me. Full details can be seen in this video: https://youtu.be/hAMCzuqOmQo

The objective is in good condition considering that the lens has no dew shield so it has not been well protected over the years. As a result it has a number of minor blemishes. The worst are a couple of 3 and 4 mm hairline scratches near the middle. These can be seen in the photo. But there are no major chips or scratches. Despite the cosmetic flaws the objective performs well with nearly identical diffraction patterns inside and outside focus. It is signed as shown in a photo.
