8x60 blc mit Stativhalterung / with tripod bracket
« on: March 19, 2018, 11:19:36 PM »
Das standard Kommandanten-Glas, 8x60 blc Zeiss Fernglas, mit Stativhalterung

Die Frage dann, wofür diese „Stativ-Modelle“ angedacht waren? Fotos vom 8x60 Fernglas im Gebrauch bei der Kriegsmarine sind auch so selten, aber auf Stativ mir ganz unbekannt. Hat jemand ein Idee wofür die gedacht waren?

The standard Zeiss 8x60 blc fat model, with Tripod bracket. Would anybody have an idea for what purpose these 14mm pin brackets were produced for the Kriegsmarine binoculars?

Hi Martin,

I have already seen a 8x60 tall with the tripod bracket with its wood crate, but I haven't saved the image. From the photo you posted, it seems to me that the bino has been repainted and that the bracket is not original (I can of course be wrong)

I believe that was used (even if I'm not sure) like the UDF 7x50. Of course in this case, the 8x60 had a graticule.

Cheers

I have a blc 8x60 "fat" with the reticle and wear to the spindle paint which indicates it was mounted. They were used in place of the UDF if it was damaged. ;)

Rodolfo, as far as I can judge, it still has its original paint, practically unused, however the right side was prism house was opened for service.
The bracket is fitted a Gestell 31 pin, so not for vessel use, this is intriguing.... what purpose?

Niall, the fat model often has paint damage from the larger swan-neck bracket.

The slim shown by Rodolfo equally is seen with the Gestell 31 bracket, again, for what purpose?

Understood Martin, used by Wehrmacht and not Kriegsmarine.

the pin 14 was standard, and it may be that there was a support of this measure also on the U-Boot. I do not see any other use for the 8x60 with tripod bracket, especially the Fat.
