These are rare beasts. Originally from a WWII Japanese battleship, these binos have 120mm objectives, 45-degree angled prisms, and 60-degree AFOV eyepieces, making them pretty desirable for astronomical use. Somebody built a crude metal fork mount for use on a modified C8 tripod, which works pretty well.

The objectives have fungus, there's a fair amount of paint damage/corrosion all over the tubes, and the focusing mechanism is extremely stiff. That being said, these are huge binoculars and if fixed up would be amazing for astronomical purposes. I took a quick look at some trees with them and the image is pretty sharp as-is, so I would say that the prisms are probably fine.

People seem to pay $3000-$5000 for these in fair to decent shape, so I'm asking $1200. You can take the mount/tripod for free if picked up, otherwise they're not included.

$1200 + PayPal + shipping. I am willing to ship these, but it will probably have to be FedEx or UPS and it will be expensive.
