Dolland 5 draw Telescope



A Dollond of London 5-draw brass telescope, cased in leather.

It dates from the late 19th or early 20th century. It is both heavy, and long when fully drawn, measuring just under 34.5″ (88 cm).

Whatever it is used for, it needs to be supported when in use. It shuts down to a neat if heavy package enclosed in its leather case.
It is in good condition with a clear picture. Focus is very good. The easiest way to use it is to extend slowly from fully closed until correct focus is achieved. The further away the object, the more extension is required.


A small chip to the 2.5” lens (does not affect the image).

The leather strap and lens protector are missing.
