MODELS 80/100:  Especially designed for wide field astrophotography

Model 80 features a highly corrected three element Taylor-type astrographic objective lens.  It features a wide field 80mm aperture objective of 400mm focal length (f/5).  Focusing was accomplished by rotating a collar that moves the objective.  Three double film holders for 4″ x 5″ film are included.  Photos courtesy of Xavier Debeerst
