I would be interested to hear from any SD member who can put some knowledge into the previous owner of a Ross Telescope I came by a few months ago?
It is a three draw brass Ross of London telescope with the no 1904 next to the eye piece (this could be the date of manufacture) Above this number is the letter I and above this is an arrow sign pointing upwards.
The case may be a help. It is a leather case and embossed on the side are the letters H H and on the other side is the leather case makers name as shown R BISSET
I know that R Bisset, now the late Bob Bisset, made telescope cases as I met him in the early 1990's when filming in Glenlyon. I bought the case in Killin on Loch Tayside, which is close by to Glenlyon
I would be interested if anyone may know who H H is or any other interesting anecdote.
