VINTAGE Carl Zeiss Jena 80 X 500 Binoculars Telescope Asembli Starmobi


⭕ CARl ZEISS JENA 80 x 500 Binoculars Telescope With TRIPOD

From what I have researched this is either known as Asembli or Starmorbi.

Eyepieces are 12x 20x and 40x.

I would say that these date to the early part of the 20th century.

21.5 inches from eyepiece to end

As you can see in a picture, the extension piece and lens covers are also included.

These are in very good working condition!

Please ask any questions!

The early part of the 20th Century saw tremendous innovation with regard to the development of binoculars, telescopes and military optics. This particular design became a commercial success after its military use in World War I. It featured a 60 mm objective and three eyepieces magnifying 12x, 24x and 42x. The telegraph ordering word was Starmor for the monocular and bi added as a suffix for the binocular. This obviously need a tripod or table pod and was sold with a choice of either.

There were two other similar designs. The Asem/Asembi with an 80 mm objective and eyepieces offering 12x, 20x & 40. The Asengular was available only as a binocular observation telescope with 100 mm objective and 15x, 30x and 50x eyepieces .
