Rundblickfernrohr 32 (Rbl. F. 32): Panoramic Telescope 32

Rundblickfernrohr 32 (Rbl. F. 32): Panoramic Telescope 32This panoramic telescope is used on all standard field equipment. It is a 4-power, fixed-focus type with a field of view of 10 degrees. The line of sight may be raised or lowered by rotation of the angle of site knob. The angle of site scale is graduated from 100 mils to 500 mils (300 mils in normal). The angle of site micrometer is graduated in mils from 0 to 100 mils. The azimuth scales on the vertical barrel of the telescope are graduated in 100-mil intervals; the upper scale, 0 to 64, is fixed in relation to the rotating head. The lower has two semi-circular scales numbered 0 to 32 and can be rotated independently of the rotating head. A knurled portion permits adjustment. The azimuth micrometer includes two scales graduated in mils from 0 to 100 mils. The outer scale can be rotated independently of the azimuth worm. Evidently the fixed azimuth scale and micrometer are used for initial laying of the piece and the second scale and micrometer are then zeroed and used to measure base deflection. A throw-out lever is provided for rapid setting in azimuth. A locking lever locks the azimuth micrometer in any setting. The reticle pattern is shown above.

The existence of Panoramic Telescopes 36 and 37 has been confirmed. They are believed to be very similar to the Rbl. F. 32.
