Found this on Ebay listed as a BRASS TELESCOPE WWII HARBOR MASTER eBay item # 250109984764 Doesn't look like one to me?

Hi Bruce,

You'll have to post a link to the auction if you don't have permission to repost the photo.

Looks interesting though!

Regards and clear skies,

Harbormasters generally don't have the dew shield. I can't identify it, but it definitely looks to be an astronomical setup. I'd like to see the objective cell.

Edit: They also usually don't have focusers, either.

I cleaned up the link. Those long bulky eBay links can be a pain. ;)

I was more intrigued by it being an AUSOME piece than anything else ! :-)
