I am new to Cloudy Nights so please bear with me. I bought an old telescope of a man whose house I bought and he did not want to move it as it was very heavy, I have recently weighed it and is 11.3 kilos (25 lbs). This was about 40 years ago. at the time I had a Tasco and thought I would refurb this one to take over from the Tasco but never got around to it. I took it out of the store recently and wonder if anyone can give me some information on it as I am thinking of selling it but would like to find out how old it is. It is on a mahogany wood stand the legs are 157cm long (5.15 feet) the barrel is 100cm (3.28 feet) closed and 117cm (3.84 feet) fully open. The diameter is 8.5cm (3.4 inches). it has a sighting scope on left hand side 27cm long (10.6 inches) and a knurled know for adjustment on the right side.. The body although being brass is factory finished in grey all other parts being brass. Around the back plate are the words. EDUCATIONAL W. Watson & Sons Ltd, 313 High Holborn, London WC1 also on the main ring is a number 2115. I have attached a photo hoping this will help any information would be appreciated.
Many thanks and stay safe.
