I got this 19th century J.T. Slugg, Manchester refractor 2 years ago from a gentleman who was born in Manchester

and now lives in Germany.  It has a 91 mm objective with over 1400 mm focal length. The lenses look like brand new!

No mount and not the original wooden tripod was included. The scope is from around 1860-1870 I think.

I even found an original letter of Mr. Thomas Slugg from 1872 on ebay!
