An enormous telescope seen in Treptow, near Berlin.
(Pathetone main titles.)
Full titles read: "The Star Seeker". (new title) "The great telescopes of today are more like giant guns. Here's the big fellow from Treptow, near Berlin."
Various shots of an enormous telescope being swung about as it stretches out across the roof of a building. A man with white hair and whiskers looks through the viewing end.
Intertitle reads: "The mounting, balance weights and motors, weigh over 50 tons..."
More shots of the gigantic machine and apparatus that holds it in place. We can just make out the be-whiskered man saying something in German (this cataloguer cannot understand what he says - can anyone else?).
