This not only adds to its authenticity and historical value but also provides a stable and adjustable platform for use. The tripod has been meticulously restored to match the quality and era of the periscope itself, creating a harmonious and elegant ensemble.As a unique alternative to traditional bigeye binoculars, this Zeiss Periscope stands out with its rich history and superior functionality. It is a testament to the quality of German engineering and optical design, preserved and presented in a form that respects its original use while adapting it for modern enjoyment.
