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.  The solid brass theodolite measures 13 1/2 inches (34.3 cm) tall, and weighs 16.4 pounds (7.45 kg).
The theodolite comes complete with a beautiful hardwood case as well as a teak and brass surveying tripod.  The teak tripod contains a second round spirit level and the height is adjustable up to a maximum height of 5 feet, 9 1/2 inches (177 cm) with a maximum eye height of 5 1/2 feet (168 cm).  The theodolite mount uses large 3 1/4 inch (8.25 cm) diameter course thread.  The theodolite and tripod weigh 30 pounds (13.6 kg).
In addition to the tripod , a beautiful solid hardwood case is included to store and carry the theodolite.  The case has storage for accessories and includes a plumb.  The case features an internal lock and the case measures 16 1/2 inches (41.9 cm) long, 8 3/4 inches (22.2 cm) deep, 7 1/4 inches (18.4 cm) tall, and weighs 8 pounds (3.6 kg).  Note that this theodolite is fully functional and certified accurate for surveying.
The Polished Brass Theodolite, hardwood case, and teak tripod is offered for $2,375.
