This telescope is in good working condition for its age, with sharp images.
Lenses are very clean without any dirt or fungus and no damage to the scope body, with normal wear and tear to the leather bound.
There is a flat area on the central raised ring (shown in photo) so that the telescope can be placed on a flat surface.
This telescope is extremely rare and so far this is perhaps the only one available in the market.
The year of production is not shown on the telescope, but most Davon telescopes were made by F Davidson & Co in early 20th century. The telescopes marked with “MK” were mainly made for military use, eg. as field artillery telescopes.
