Product Description

A late 18th century large brass library telescope with stand, made by the renowned Dollond of London.

The “Dollond of London” mark can be seen on the face of the main tube, just up from the eyepiece. The telescope is attached to the stand by two screws and can be disassembled with minimal fuss. A fine focus ring is at the back of the main tube.

The condition is largely good considering its age, though there are dents and scuffs to the main tube and the fine focus ring slips at a few points. The optics are also very good – remarkable for a telescope of this age.


Total Length: 138cm (54”)
Tube Length: 109cm (43”)
Eyepiece Diameter: 4cm (1½”)
Objective lens Diameter: 8cm (3”)
Height: 58cm (22¾”)
