Theodolite, Solid Brass Housing & Body, Functional Compass & Telescope
Theodolite, Solid Brass Housing and Body, Functional Compass and Telescope, Glass Optics For Clear Viewing, Modern Design On a Classic Nautical Instrument.
This Hampton Nautical solid Brass Theodolite 10" is beautifully detailed, functional, and calibrated. Theodolites are still used today for ultra-high precision optical alignment and measurement.
The azimuth and elevation axes can be read on a vernier scale with the aid of built-in magnifiers. Both axes have slow motion controls and the telescope can plunge and reverse to reduce bearing errors. With a magnetic compass mounted on top, the azimuth axis has a second spirit level mounted on the telescope with a mirror to assist in levelling while the telescope utilizes precision optics and has a brass lens cover. The theodolite's 22-power non-inverting telescope has two focusing adjustments, one for the precision reticule focus and another for focusing the target.
