Mega rare model that is listed on Nikons history page as being made in 1961 with a price of $895.00. Astronomical f/8 objectives with nice baffling help produce outstanding images. The robust cast iron stand/mount rotates 360 degrees horizontally, about 45 degrees vertically up and down, and also tilts about 20 degrees to the left & right. Only two other of this model known to exist. Designed specifically for birding but could be mounted on a tall tripod or stand for astro duty. The long tubes look white but are actually a very light baby blue color. Condition of optics & mechanics are pristine and collimation is perfect. Cosmetics are excellent and totally original. Extremely collectible & usable instrument that would be great showpiece for the binocular/optics connoisseur. Total weight is 23 lbs.
