Hi all,

Well, as for my last two pictures:

optic equipment.jpg : Flakfernrohr 10 x 80 Binoculars.
Dibujo.JPG: Have anyone any ideas? :(

On the other hand, Can anyone identify this german rangefinders?

Image 1: small rangefinders. Does anyone know the model? They seem to be being used to correct field artillery fire rather than for antiaircraft fire.
Image 2: According to photocaption the image was taken in Crimea. It is a rare model :?

Images from Ebay.
Thanks in advance. Regards Sturm78

Hi all,

Well, I've got some information in the net about the German rangefinders. See http://www.fieldgear.org/optics.htm
According to this, I guess:

german soldier with rangefinder.jpg : Entfernungsmesser 36 (EM36) 1M rangefinder
german soldiers with rangefinders.jpg : Entfernungsmesser 34 (EM34) 0.7M rangefinder on small tripod
german rangefinder in Krim, Russia-.JPG : ??? :? According to Stril, Norway

Hi all,

I found this image on Ebay. I think this image show the same equipment that my photo posted by me in this thread on 18 Aug 2009, identified by Torsten as a Kinotheodolit (cinetheodolite), but I am not sure.

Can anybody confirm this?
