Sturm is right. It is the installation called "crane". Two of them in working condition with guns are still preserved at Örö island, Finland.

Hi,
according to ebay it's Borkum. Then it must be Oldenburg or Coronell.

Hello,
no ideas for my last question?
Here maybe a better pic.
The photo is taken in (or next to) Calais in Winter 1941.
Thanks Oliver

Hello,
The shape of the gun with the counterweight looks like a 30,5 cm S.K.L/50, possibly in M. K. B. Friedrich August.

An image from Ebay. I think could be a rare 15cm KL40 in Küstenlafette C07 (Verschwindlafette) coastal gun batterie
