Not much besides the Zeiss eyepieces,

as I am Leicaholic, and Docterian.

 

Sorry for joking,

The only Zeiss that I have at the moment is a pair of Zeiss ZAO-II 16mm which give stunning views.

I have ZAO 16, 10, 6 and 4mm and I think Zeiss Abbe are very good eyepieces.

Since all my scopes are long focus I only need longer ZAO's.

Just ZEISS-Binos, no scopes.

I use them all very often.

Hi Donadani,

 

Sehr schön!!  

 

The silver back end of your AS80 looks really nice, so Space age inspired!! when i looked at it, it came to my memory those pictures of the Soyuz spacecrafts!!

 

MfG / regards

Carlos

Here's a suite of Zeiss AS80's I built a few years ago with some eyepieces.  The one in front is the 1200fl. that goes out of frame.

Some very good Zeiss filters in your collection.

 

I have some of the Zeiss filters for the optics testing, and have repurposed some of the blue interference Zeiss filters in to the 1.25" thread for the visual astronomy.

 

Best,

JG

Hallo Donadani,

 

this Zeiss would not leave my sleeping room, and the wooden case would have at least two heavy locks.

 

Gruß,
