1711214680Code 7865 Antique TelescopeBrass telescope with leather-covered handle and three-extension focus, signed F.M. Newton Optician Halifax from the second half of the 19th century. Maximum length 87.5 cm, 34.4 inches, minimum 30 cm, - 11.7 inches, focal diameter 4.5 cm - 1.8 inches. In good condition, crack on the last lens which does not affect the quality of vision, fully functional and complete with custom-made wooden and brass support base. To focus the telescope you need to extend it completely and then slowly shorten the last extension, the smallest one, until the image is in focus.

Frederick Mark Newton born in 1817 was an optician and telescope maker who worked in Halifax from 1871 to 1885.

According to legend, one unspecified day in 1608 the children of Hans Lipperhey, who was an eyeglass maker from Middelburg, were playing with lenses in their father's workshop. When one of the sons placed a concave lens near his eye, holding a convex lens in the other hand, and holding out his arm towards the tip of the bell tower of the cathedral, looked through it, he saw the weathercock that was on the top grow bigger and get closer. . Having immediately shown the phenomenon to his father, he fixed the lenses on a board to make observation easier, thus creating the first rudimentary telescope. Unfortunately for Lipperhey, however, when he presented a patent request for this instrument to the States General, within a few days other Dutch eyeglass makers also claimed the invention.
