Original British Naval Telescope by F. Stoppani of London - Named to Capt. George Martin
Day or Night.
On pulling the sun shade forward on the front of the telescope the name Capt. G. Martin, R.N. is revealed.
The scope measures just over 39" when fully extended and just 15" when fully closed. The instrument is quite usable however the lenses do have a bit of dust on them from the years. This has recently arrived from a major Telescope Collection Sale of which we were fortunate to secure a few fine items, including this wonderful example.
