This is our newly-redesigned massive solid brass refractor antique reproduction telescope mounted on a solid teakwood and brass tripod.
These are not the inexpensive 8 - 12 power decorative versions made from thin 0.8 mm brass.
These have 32-power precision coated optics and are made with dent-resistant heavy 1.2 mm thick brass.
The telescope uses precision ground glass optics and produces a clear 32-power non-inverted (upright) image.
For many years, mariners have considered 32-power to be the ideal balance between magnification and field of view.
Focusing is accomplished by rotating a large adjusting ring near the eyepiece.
A sunshade protects the objective lens from glare and the inside of the telescope is
coated flat black to improve contrast.
A removable brass cap protects the objective lens when the telescope is not in use.
The Stanley London® telescope is mounted on a heavy solid brass casting and a three-legged
solid teak tripod base.
The maximum height of the telescope is 61 inches (155 cm) and it can be collapsed to a
height of 38 inches (96.5 cm).
The telescope is easily removed from the tripod, and the tripod collapses efficiently
for compact storage.
The telescope can be custom engraved near the eyepiece with
up to two short lines of text, such as a name and a date.
The main tube of the telescope can be engraved with artwork, a logo, or one to four longer lines of text.
Due to the large width of the engravable area, we suggest engraving full names rather than monograms or initials.
The solid brass strut on the tripod for the polished telescope can be engraved with up to six lines of text.
This telescope is available in two finishes: The polished brass version has been hand polished
to a high luster.
The polished telescope is 43 3/4 inches (111 cm) long, 3 inches (7.6 cm) in diameter, has a
tube outside diameter of 2 1/4 inches (5.7 cm), and an objective lens diameter of 2 inches (5.1 cm).
The telescope with tripod weighs 20 pounds (9.1 kg).
The telescope is also available with an antique patina finish which is made to look like
a 100 year old antique.
The antique patina finish never needs polishing and can be handled without tarnishing the brass.
The antique patina telescope is 46 3/4 inches (119 cm) long, 3 inches (7.6 cm) in diameter, has a
tube outside diameter of 2 1/4 inches (5.7 cm),
and an objective lens diameter of 2 inches (5.1 cm).
The telescope with tripod weighs 22 pounds (10 kg).
These heavy solid brass telescopes are perfect for your office, near a view window, or
for celestial observations.
The 44-inch Brass Telescopes on Teak Tripods with either a polished finish
or an antique patina are available for $589.
We also have a Premium Quality 44-inch Clear Coated Brass Telescope, a
smaller and less expensive 30-inch Brass Telescope on a Hardwood Tripod
