Update on the Jenkinson Cooke telescope


In June I blogged about the Rev Jenkinson. 

 I have recently discovered that in 1867 the Rev J H Jenkinson of St Mary’s vicarage Reading, Berks purchased two astronomical eyepieces from Thomas Cooke and Sons York.

 In 1896 he described a series of sunspot drawings he had made between February and August of that year. He used a 4.5 inch Thomas Cooke of York telescope.

I wonder if those eyepieces purchased in 1867 were the ones used in 1896?
