G. u S. Merz 75mm equatorial mounted telescope ± 1890
This is an impressive 19th century German telescope. Used this telescope several times and I'm impressed with the optics and the mechanics of the equatorial mount.
Georg Merz d. 12 January 1867, left business to sons Sigmund & Ludwig. S. Merz becomes director, used engraved names ''G. & S. Merz vormalsUtzschneider und Fraunhofer’ and ‘G. & S. Merz’. 1871, 63 employees at Merz.
The Merz 75mm refractor is a one of a kind telescope. The lens with a diameter of 75mm is for it's time large. The equatorial mount on a woorden tripod is a beauty.
