A man's full arm extension is necessary to be able to hold our largest handheld spyglass telescope.
When completely extended, these large solid brass telescopes are 35 1/2 inches (90.3 cm) long and
are 12 inches (30.5 cm) long when collapsed.
Three versions of these four-pipe telescopes are available;
Polished brass, hand-sewn leather sheathed brass, and antique patina.
All three versions have bright 5-element ground glass optics with a powerful 20-power
view and produce clear non-inverting (upright) images.
Each telescope is made of heavy solid brass and each weighs 3 pounds, 9 ounces (1.6 kg).
The telescopes are 2 1/2-inch (6.4 cm) in diameter with a 52 mm diameter ground
glass objective lens.
A built-in sunshade extends to reduce lens flare.
All of the Stanley London® 35-inch Spyglass Telescopes are accompanied by a beautiful hardwood case.
The corners of the box are inlaid with lighter hardwood splines and the interior of the box
has a dark green felt lining.
Also, an oval brass plate is inlaid flush with the surface on the top of the case.
The case measures 12 3/4 inches (32.4 cm) long, 3 3/4 inches (9.5 cm) deep, 3 3/8 inches (8.6 cm) tall, and
weighs 1 pound, 9 ounces (710 grams).
Custom engraving directly on the telescope near the eyepiece or Custom
engraved brass plaques for the top or the front of the case are also available.
When requesting engraving directly on the telescope, we suggest engraving full names rather than monograms or initials due to the large width of the engravable area.
