This beautiful solid brass refractor telescope is mounted on a solid brass and hardwood tripod. The telescope uses precision ground glass optics to produce a bright and clear 24-power non-inverted image. The 30" telescope is focused by rotating a large adjusting ring near the eyepiece. The telescope is 29" long with a main tube 2.25" in diameter, and has an objective lens diameter of 42 mm. A removable 2.75" diameter brass cap protects the objective lens. The telescope is mounted on a sturdy two-section telescoping rich cherry-stained solid hardwood tripod with heavy brass castings. The height of the telescope is adjustable from a minimum height of 37" to a maximum height of 59" tall. The telescope is easily removed from the tripod, and the tripod collapses efficiently for compact storage. The telescope with tripod weighs 15.25 lbs. This beautiful brass telescope is perfect for your office or home, near a view window, for viewing the water, landscape, the Moon and Jupiter.
