Oigee Mentor 2" refractor equatorial mount 1922

You don't see them often. I suppose there are only 20 of this small school telescope still existing.
It's the Oigee Mentor. A 50mm equatorial mounted refractor. The table top mount is very beautiful finished with the wooden pier. The telescope was made in the 1920's in Berlin, Germany.
Tested it last night on Mars and Saturn and the views are very pleasant.
Surprising for such a small scope. Small but very heavy. A lot of cast iron.
