USSR COLD WAR ERA TZK 10 X 80 BINOCULARS 1957
ref F164 /
A superb set of Russian 10 x 80 Large Anti-Aircraft Binoculars, dated 1957, manufactured during the Cold War period and originally issued to Soviet forces with outstanding optical performance.
Of superb quality and manufacture, the wide-angle eyepieces are designed for comfort during prolonged use and comprise adjustments for eyeglass wearers. This particular set is augmented by a commander's monocular allowing a second participant to the field of view, magnified eight times as well as sight for range finding or rifle / artillery use.
The 10 indicates the level of magnification (with the object viewed being magnified 10 times) and the 80 indicates the width of the objective (the lens is 8cm across) providing a very wide field of view). The binoculars are fitted with double focus lenses allowing each lens to be adjusted in isolation to provide the individual user with near perfect clarity.
A wonderful addition for any room with a view, this binocular set has been professionally stripped, serviced and inspected prior to being hand polished. They are mounted on a sturdy tripod which can be height and angle adjusted.
The height of the tripod can raise the binoculars from approx 130cm- 200cm.
