What a gorgeous old telescope.  Thank you for bringing her back in all her function and glory.  Just to think of all the young minds that have looked through her and been overwhelmed by what they saw.  Thanks for reviving this.

My pleasure! Really was great fun and got paid on top! tongue2.gif

Something for you to read if you're housebound and haven't already done so!

Mike,

 

Did you get a picture of just the eyepieces that went with this scope that you could add to the post, especially the wide field?

No, sorry. All Huygens or orthos etc. on a turret. I made up an adapter so the Astronomy teacher could use modern eyepieces though.
