Stanley London Brass Theodolite
with Teak Tripod and
We are proud to offer this beautifully detailed functional and calibrated solid brass
reproduction of a precision theodolite.
Theodolites are still used today for ultra high precision optical alignment and measurement.
There is a spirit level and three adjustable legs for fine leveling.
The azimuth and elevation axes can be read on a vernier scale with the assistance of built-in magnifiers.
To reduce bearing errors each axis has slow motion controls and the telescope can plunge and reverse.
The azimuth axis has a second spirit level mounted on the telescope with a mirror to aid in leveling.
Mounted on the azimuth axis is a magnetic compass.
The azimuth scale is 5 1/4 inches (13.3 cm) in diameter and the elevation scale is 4 3/4 inches (12.1 cm) in diameter.
The theodolite's 22-power non-inverting telescope has two focusing adjustments;
one for the precision reticule focus and the other for focusing the target.
The telescope uses precision optics and has a brass lens cover.
The telescope measures 8 inches (20.3 cm) long.
