6 This 6" Fitz refractor from the private collection of John Briggs (23k.jpg) (one of only about 40 remaining today) is probably a twin of the missing telescope that once stood on the garden of the Huguenot Seminary in Wellington, South Africa.

This photo (18k.jpg) also includes the telescope mount and gives more detail on this unique telescope.

Another picture of a 7" Fitz, dating from 1849 is here (30k.jpg), from the website of the Antique Telescope Society .
