The tripod telescope measures 37.75" x 67". The power is 35x. Dating back to the pitching bridge of a dreadnought man-of-war or the battlements of the British Imperial Army campaign headquarters. Far-reach telescopes were rare and expensive, available only to captains of the fleet and highly ranked officers of the general staff. Our monocular is outfitted with complicated prismatic lenses. Its brass and nickel parts are expertly covered with hand-sewn leather, to withstand the wear and tear of daily use on campaign.
