    This telescope from Hanwell observatory was mentioned in another thread

    Unusual but Interesting design.

    Is it possible to collimate the mirror from the eyepiece end?

    I seem to remember that visual double star measurments were the main use for this telescope, am I correct/ it is a dual reflecting telecope with 12 and 10 inch mirrors mounted in parallel fashion.

    Is it a folded reflector? The focuser does not appear to be at right angles to the tube and there appears to be what looks like a system of baffles, both consistent which such a system. Just a guess.
