That's about it. I'm not sure if there are any experts out there but I went on Ebay and saw a couple that were going for over $300.
Power is not 7x62. it is 7x42.

antique dealer or pawnshop may give you a value.

Two ships on the same ocean may be many miles apart. In order to see another ship clearly, some kind of tool must be used. Though more popular in the old days, telescopes still remain today. In today’s world, binoculars are far more common to see used on the sea. More than any other tool, this item was one of the most iconic of the blossoming navigation era. When navigating the globe became somewhat of a European phenomenon, these pieces were used on ships constantly. Often, more than one item was stowed away. Today, these items are used in both play and research as integral parts of both. The great range of uses makes this item invaluable.

The telescopes antique may even appeal to those who don’t normally enjoy maritime items. Because of the delicate make and many sharp corners, giving this item to children over a certain age limit is recommended. Rarely, some items are made from childproof plastic, and these are seen as wonderful alternatives.

A telescope is unique in that its uses have yet to be replaced completely by any modern technology today. While the telescope has many symbolisms associated with it, some of the most prominent in our minds is that of curiosity and a thrilling journey on the ocean. Telescopes in the old days were brought on board and held by captains and higher ranked officers because of their breakable and expensive nature. It was considered a rare treat to be able to view a seascape through the telescope in old times. In the captain’s room it was not uncommon to keep a few extra telescopes. Until telescopes were fastened around the wrist with string, many were lost overboard. The materials from which this shackle was made varied in relation to the telescope’s location of use. Because fabrics were eaten by mold on the ocean, many sailors chose metal bracelets. Other times, officers would keep their marine telescope in a box. Later on, it became popular to wear the items on a chain around the neck.

One of the items that sprung from history’s persistence in crafting better navigation tools was the telescopes antique. To both navigators and sailors alike, the telescopes antique transformed into a vital component of their tool box almost overnight. Because of the high accuracy of these pieces, navigators were able to eyeball such distances with startling accuracy. In this manner, estimated times of arrival or impact could be predicted. During battles this was one of the more important tactics. A skilled navigator was more prone to being spot on in their predictions. This dire combination of defining attributes helped the item reach the top of the chain in the sailing tool world.
