Equatorial mount made by George Calver in the 1880's.
Still missing some parts but they on their way.
The pier isn't the original one.
The 4" Polarex is ready: repainted the tube and restored the mount. Is working great. It's a model from the mid 1950's.
The mount of the Secretan 80mm is cleaned and restored. Works again very smooth. It's very nice to work at such a fine piece of engineering. Don't want to repaint it. It needs to stay natural.
Finally the Harris & Son Newton telescope arrived from the UK. Thomas Harris was active in London between 1780 and 1817. The telescope and the mount in bad condition. Lot's of original parts are missing. When I bought the scope the mirror was perfect. When it arrived is broken. Big loss. But it's a historical interesting instruments who deserves to be restored. It will take a lot of time. No hurry. Still have enough other telescopes who need my attention
From the same UK based seller I bought this oak equatorial mount. No signature. I think it's from the early 1900.
Bigger than you think and certainly heavier. Very well made. Once cleaned it will be a beautiful object.
The last mount I bought from the Uk seller is a Stanley-Wilkins mount from the 1950's. Perfect for a Newton reflector
Next project: the restoration of an early Kosmos D61 school telescope. Want repaint the tube. Sign of the age and the time.
Secretan was one of the finest opticians of France. This a rare box with 6 astronomical and 1 terrestrial eyepiece.
The astronomical eyepices can be used in combination with modern telescopes.
Tested the eyepeices with a modern refractor and they perform exceptionally. I suppose this are orthoscopic eyepieces.…
This is a complete 81mm Secretan refractor. The alt az has slow motion control on the two axes. This is rather uncommon.
The slow motions are working very smooth. Hard to find a Secretan 81mm with the complete…
19th century Nicol prisms from a polariscope for solar observations.
Provenance large French solar observatory.
The prisms are made of Calcite minerals…
Two telescope mirrors made the famous Suisse optician and astronomer Prof. Emile Schaer (1862 - 1931).
The two mirrors are part of heliostat.
The two mirrors are described in "Publications of the Observatoire Geneve Series A, vol. 18, pp.253-265" 1931.
The diameter are 26cm (625cm) and 20cm (300cm).
Emile Schaer is know for the invention of the folded refractor.
The mirrors are signed
1965: the glory period of the 20cm Gajdusek-Kozelsky refractor.
Will be moved to dark location again.

ATOS (Site de Télescopes Antiques) est la prochaine étape dans l'évolution d’Anamorfose et Anamorfose Curiosa.
Anamorfose a été fondée en 1996 en tant que antiquariat de photo en Belgique. Anamorfose vendait en ligne des photos d'art et des livres dans le monde entier. Après des années l'accent est passé de la photographie d'art à la…
We have been selling vintage astronomical instruments for over more than 10 years.
I'm a amateur astronomer myself and all instruments I sell are in good working condition.
I test all the telescopes under the stars and know the possibilities of each instrument
All the instruments are controlled and cleaned before shipping.
The necessary reparations are done.
If possible missing parts are replaced.
If not, read the item description carefully for possible…
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.…
