Hello

 

Recently I got this Binoviewer. It is really heavy and there is one Sticker  ( A E ) on it.  Does somebody know who was the producer and how old it is?

 

Thank you!

 

Greetings

 

Tobias

Looks like an old Nikon Microscope conversion (repainted?).

It does not look repainted, because of the sticker....although you can hardly see the sticker because it is transparent with black Letters...on black paint. confused1.gif

 

On the protection caps you have the Vixen V, but I have never seen the Bino from Vixen.
