I find this Heidenhain Newtonian Cassegrain just an exquisite looking telescope. Until it was posted in the eBay thread yesterday, I had never heard of one. It’s basically a 6” F5 (150mm x 700mm), and looks quite heavy for its size. The precision machining, finishing touches, and industrial design look very Zeissish And I love the Victorian-green fork mount and tripod. It reminds me a bit of the Fecker Cassegrains of similar size. It’s quite high priced for a scope of it’s size. Anyway, it’s so unique that I thought it deserved a thread of it’s own with some pictures preserved for posterity when the eBay thread disappears after it’s sold.
Does anyone here know anything about these?
