This is one MASSIVE  Military WW1 Field telescope.The condition is amazingly good, only 1 small repair to the smallest draw tube, all the other drawer tubes are in incredible condition, no dents or scratches etc.Each tube has a very small air hole to allow the air to move in and out of the scope, otherwise the internal semi vacuum would not allow the  scope to be opened and closed !! Even though its a six drawer scope any  "flop " in the tube is very very negligible.From an engineering point of view this is very impressive.The optics are good despite being cleaned while on the battlefield and still give a decent image of approx 30 x
The  length is  over 1600 mm the scope comes from the beginning of the 20 th Century. the mount just one i had hanging around, but it does work The mount is only worth about £40 
The telescope itself is £950
