Here are a few pictures of antique telescopes I have come across:
3″ Clarkson refractor, pre-Broadhurst! It’s a terrestrial scope with no finder and one of those 20cm long rectifying eyepieces to turn the image right way up. Almost mint and an auction bargain at £60. The name ages it to the 1890s, give or take. ‘Tis a lovely thing! I just need a suitable mount.
3″ Broadhurst Clarkson library telescope on a pillar and claw stand. Around 1920. Black crackle paint finish.
