Good God !!

99p start price. Now that's what I call round objects of steel. Seller's mad. These go for lots of dosh.

It looks in good nick. If the optics are clean, then this could be a staggering bargain !!

Hi John

By that old manual £320.00 was a lot of money then for a small scope not shore what size eyepieces would it be 1.25 could it take a 2" so many question :-)just found out it's 0.965 very small for todays standards ,you can still get eyepieces for this scope but I would hope I could put a larger 1.25 or a 2"on it

Noted Doug. You can certainly convert these to 1.25" but I doubt that 2" would be possible or even desirable.

The reason for buying this would be the optical quality and a bit of history - Zeiss is pretty special :)

This was my drool scope when I first got interested in astronomy - the leaflet got so battered being pulled in and out while I tried to afford/justify it. Didn't manage it and I ended up with a 6inch newtonian instead. I'm keeping an eye on this...

Hmmm. Reckon that most of SGL will be tuned into ebay when that finishes...

Ant :hello2:

Those of a "certain age range" anyway :)

The only Zeiss item I have is a pair of 8x30 Jenoptem binoculars that I picked up from a charity shop for £20 including the leather case. Much to my surprise they turned out to be genuine ones (there are lots of fakes about) and, while the exterior is somewhat battered, the optics are exquisite. They have quickly become my favorite birding binos by a mile :icon_scratch:

My dad has a '70's pair of West German Carl Zeiss 10x50's.

Bit battered n bruised but the optics are clean. My goodness they are a true joy to look through. Perfectly balanced too.

The jammy auld git got them for free !!

Maybe they are worried that the toddler who apparently lives there might destroy it.

Possibly - although I think the toddler might come off worse. I understood that the Telementors were designed for use in schools and colleges. To me that would mean a fair amount of over-engineering - those are tough operating conditions :)

Me neither - I've 3 fracs already. The end price was pretty good though. I'm surprised that's all it went for - I've seen rather tatty 8x30 Zeiss binoculars go for over £100 :)
