Subject: RE: Field Glasses (Gen. Lee's)
"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 I have toyed with a few solutions, but it is still easier just to leave the extender withdrawn and manipulate them by hand.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.
