Koehring Teleskoop, originally known as the Bantam Teleskoop. I can't remember if Koehring always owned Bantam, or bought them somewhere along the way.

maybe it is a Koehring, I was going to say Badger but the upper is smaller, and from memory the rotation at the bucket looks too compact.   that said, did the Koehring bucket rotate?

Final kicker is the square lights.  I heard the Badger engineer who botched one model complain "I wish we'd get in the 20th century and get square lights."  So this is eight Koehring or a 21st century Badger...

Bruce, It should have a bucket that rotates 360°.
