Russian Cold War TZK 10×80 Binoculars dated 1952



1952 dated Russian 10 x 80 Large Anti-Aircraft Binoculars. They were manufactured in the Cold War with improved optical performance. The Binoculars consists of a 10x80mm binocular augmented by an optional 8x commander’s monocular. The wide-angle eyepieces feature comfortable eye relief and adjustments for eyeglass wearers.

The 10 indicates the level of magnification (the object is magnified 10 times) and the 80 relates to the width of the objectives (the lens is 8cm across giving a very wide field of view). The binoculars are fitted with double focus lenses allowing each lens to be adjusted in isolation for gaining near perfect clarity.

The binoculars have been professionally stripped and serviced before being hand polished and mounted on an original sturdy tripod. The near perfect quality of the optics means that they can be used for appreciating the detail of any view or simply stargazing.
