Note: The brass telescope body is in very good condition with some age-related wear and tear to the surface and to the leather cover. No chips or damage to the lenses. No dust or mould on the internal lenses. This telescope gives clear images.  

For customer information, like most vintage telescopes of this type, the magnification value is not marked on the telescope body. But we have tried to compare this telescope with a spotting scope which has a zoom magnification from 15x up to 45x. It looks that the images as viewed through both scopes become similar as the magnification level of the spotting scope is adjusted to around 40x. This information is for reference purpose only.
