Thomas Cooke telescope mounting for India in 1868

 In 1868 F Doderet in Madras in India purchased a simple Thomas Cooke equatorial mounting for a 5 foot telescope.

I have not yet been able to establish if this was for a Cooke telescope or not or indeed what size the telescope was. The mounting came equipped with leather straps to hold the telescope, on a short tripod.
