The Samson

Sadly there are only a few of these iconic Samson Telescopes left in circulation and they are now collector’s pieces. However we are lucky enough to have 3 or 4 left in our workshops that we are in the process of restoring to their former glory! Could you be the new owner of one of these historic telescopes?

The Samson’s were mainly sited in the U.K. in the 1950’s and are beautiful looking telescopes. A few years ago we sold one which had been sited on the Royal Yacht Britannia whilst in its new home berth of Edinburgh.

These telescopes have mainly come from our own operation and are sold as reconditioned machines.

The Samson is either supplied with the original focusable 20 x 60 optics or these can be replaced with a brand new fixed focus optics.

These are fabulous looking collector’s pieces!
