1930s Vintage SkyScope Inc Telescope Complete, Original Shipping Box & Tripod:
$200

All original, 1930's vintage telescope from The Skyscope Co. Inc..
The heavy cardboard barrel is 38" long.
The metal legs are 36" long.
Stands about 43" tall when level on the tripod.
Has 3 different power brass eyepieces and a view finder.
The original shipping box is included. Bears a shipping date of "12/24/35".
I've taken the telescope out and can confirm that it works great! Two of the lenses are quite clear when looking at the moon. One of them is a bit scratchy but still gets the job done. You do get a very good picture of the full moon when it's available. I didn't try to find any planets but I'm sure you can.
I believe this may be the approximate power telescope that Galileo used (read that somewhere).
It is a very nice piece. Makes for a striking display and the bonus is, you can actually use it!
I'm sure it will make a fantastic addition to any collection.
Please review all photos in detail and ask any questions that you may have prior to purchase.
Thanks!
