Day telescope - inscription
This achromatic telescope has a leather-covered barrel and a single silvered-brass draw tube. The other fittings are also silvered brass and include a pivoted eyepiece cover, an objective lens cap and a sliding sunshade. Unusually for a telescope of this date, there is no mechanical stop on the draw tube, which may be pulled freely out of the barrel. There is, however, a stop line engraved on the draw tube to indicate the optimum working length of the telescope.
