Subject: RE: Field Glasses (Gen. Lee's)

Message Detail:
"Yours also lack the elevating connection that raises and lowers the "top bridge."

Actually, it has one, but since the focal length is now longer than the original design, it won't extend the bridge far enough to focus properly. I have toyed with a few solutions, but it is still easier just to leave the extender withdrawn and manipulate them by hand. My research implies that the glasses are probably of 1870's vintage and I point that out to people when I am "teaching" spectators.

Thanks a bunch for your input.
Mike
