1940 CTS Telescope Elevation No8 Mk 1/2

Excellent optics but a little raggedy looking. There's no shame to it though - it was used in the Battle of Britain to help guide Anti Aircraft guns on the South Coast mounted on a Kerrison Predictor.

Two mobile phone snapshots - sorry for the resolution - of my later CTS director scope.

Looks like coated optics?

Yes, coated lenses.
