Quote:SARD 6x42 Another common problem with these is the plastic focusing grip. They tend to crack. Also, there are better ways to design adjustment lock for the diopter setting.45 deg LOS inclined Flak 10 x 80, the Busch design:Most are uncoated . My dkl 81925 Schneider( Kreuznach) has cryolite coatings, which are more efficient than MgF2, but are , NB ,soluble in warm water. I have several partially coated Leitz. Sometimes one sees somewhat oddball coatings on cxn (Busch) production . IIRC, those were earlymultilayers. I have about 100 pages of the Busch plans, from a Leitz archive microfilmed just after the war ended.

Quote:Hi Frank, I have long lost your contact info.This is Mike Downs in Florida. I know I sold you some Canadian binos and I think I may have sent you a few old french glasses 3 or 4 years ago. I also commented on the HMR designation while you were searching for a definition. I hav'nt viewed your collection since then and must say the quanity,quality and rareness of your group is amazing.I doubt duescthoptik has anything on you now.Outstanding!!!!
