Designed by von Höegh, these lenses were introduced under the name Double Anastigmat Type B. Two series were produced, Ib and Id, in 1904 they were renamed Celor and Syntor respectively. The Syntor was produced in sizes of at least 3 - 12" and continued in production until c. 1925. The Celor ranged from at least 2 ⅜ - 19" and was replaced in 1916 by the Dogmar. The rear group could be used with a small stop as a long-focus lens.
