Hi Mike,

As a matter a fact there were even more different reticles. The popular believe that radar meant the end for German optical guided fire control systems however is completely wrong, in...

You're right Sgt. Bilko, technically speaking this is no Flakglas but a Scheinwerferrichtungsweiser 38 with a second pattern reticle. Nice find indeed.

Zeissasembi,

The small Tellerwerke were usually used in conjunction with either Stangenfernrohre or the common SF 14 with its arms at the horizontal. For some reason image plasticity was...

Indeed Binoswede, but you didn't misunderstand me, I wasn't specific enough I gather. I didn't mean the slim 8x in general (although I still think that Prien is holding a 7x in the picture) but the...

Gents,

Hi Bill,
