Waterbury 9" Lens from the 19th Century
While we are waiting for someone to scoop up this cool single element Waterbury lens, made by Scovill of NY, I might ask if someone knows what the proper name for the wheeled stops are in this version. I listed it with "Waterhouse stops" and it has been pointed out that this is not a very accurate term to use.
This is a nice brass lens and I had imagined using it on some wood camera project, but we are clearing out a few of the many photographic artifacts here in the lab to augment the fund for materials (or make room for new toys) and have put a couple of things on ebay, this included.
