This is my Classic 14.25 inch Star-Liner Telescope while housed in the old observatory.
This is an observatory model with clock drive and slow motion controls on both R.A. and Dec. axises.
Star-Liner, along with Cave, and Criterion was a premier instrument company in the 50's, 60's and 70's. The company went out of business in the 1990's.
The large light grasp provides the ability to see very faint objects. You can observe the distant planet Pluto with this very instrument !
