Interesting bino Guiseppe, never seen, indeed, very large eyelenses!

When were they approximately produced?

..., but I don't understand if you means the Green Theatis that you show is 5x
The green model shown is a regular 3.5x15 Theatis from VEB Jena GDR times.

Carmen Miranda models the correct headwear to be used when using exotic Zeiss binos to look for exotic Brazilian birds... ;D

Magnification 6x / Re: Emil Busch 6X30 Monocular ?

You may be right Rodolfo but it seems pointless to cover an alloy barrel with Bakelite when non Bakelite binos did well with alloy only. Peter's one talks of iron parts, one in tan, one in Air Force Gray which suggests it's metal only;

http://binopedia.info/index.php?topic=1035.msg6866#msg6866

I wonder if there was two types - one with purely alloy barrels and one with Bakelite reinforced? This would further minimise the use of metal (and some of the barrels certainly look more chunky than others) ;)

A great find Frank but sad to hear it's nowt to do with a Brazilian bird... ;D

At least both are exotic!
