Scherenfernrohr. The allies called it the “rabbit-ears”. These optics have two tubes which could be folded out in an angle. They were used for all kind of purposes. Range finding was possible and due to the magnification they were also good for general observation. You could find them in the field but also in fortifications. A smaller version could be used hand held and is called Handwinkelfernrohr. In spite of the fact that these tubes are fixed, we have them in this section.


Doppelfernrohr. These are binoculars with oculairs for both eyes (Doppel = double) and applied in a variety of applications. In this section we handle the larger pieces that need a tripod or an other fixed mounting. The smaller ones will be in the section Optics/hand held.

Just a collection.
