Price on Request



My friend Vivian Scanu from Australia has said the Australasia ltd company was either purchased or merged with or became Greater Union Cinemas. He has promised more information to follow.

Number 231 is in excellent mechanical condition. It cranks evenly and smoothly and it has a matched set of four F2.3 lenses. Three Bausch and Lomb F2.3 Baltars. 25mm, 50mm and a 75mm. The fourth lens is a very special 100mm F2.3 ASTRO-GESELLSCHAPT patented June 9, 1925. All lenses have very clean glass for their age and all irises work well.
