Kosmos Fernrohr Modell A 61mm, +/- 1920, antique telescope

This is a real collector's item. A complete Kosmos A61 is not only very decorative but also a perfect working telescope.

the lens was made by GuS Merz, one of the finest optic makers from Germany.

Used it several nights under clear skies and it's a pleasure to observe with.

The Kosmos A61 is a typical German school telescope.  Easy to use and very sturdy.

Included in the sale
Kosmos A61 refractor.  Diameter: 61mm.  f: 900mm

Merz lens

Original Tremel equatorial mount

slow motion on both axes

Eyepiece

Condition
Tested the telescope several times and the optics are in fine condition

The focuser is smooth and precise

The mount works perfect

The mount and tube have signs of the time but I find part of the history of this telescope.  Personally wouldn't restore it.  It's the buyers freedom to decide otherwise.
