Triple Tested

By chase
I found these binoculars hidden away in a cupboard at my parents house, looks like they haven't been out of that lovely case for a while.

On them is written....
ZENITH coated optics, triple tested, 10X50 Field 5" Light Weight
My word, they are anything but light weight !!
They still work but probably need a little tlc.

I don't think the little hip flask has ever been used.

Taken in daylight camera left, a 3 frame HDR combined in Lightroom, finished with a tidy up in Photoshop.

Thanks for taking the time to call in.
Constructive critique and mods welcome.

Best wishes for New Year Janet!
Fascinating retro items here. The Zenith bins were cheap and cheerful copies of Zeiss ones of that era. Zenith also made film cameras which are built like tanks too, and take good photos.
Great still life here.

Nothing to do with Zenith was lightweight but they were value for money in terms of performance.

Certainly not as lightweight as ones made today! 😁 You seem to have a treasure trove of old items Janet 😃 A fine set-up and presentation 👍
A very Happy New Year to you 😀

Another set of, perhaps mismatched, items that just work so well together due to your fantastic eye for detail in anything and everything!!! Lovely image.
All the very best for 2021, Janet!

Janet, you are all set up to join the hunt but I didn't notice the book telling of this:

Oh, a-hunting we will go, a-hunting we will go,
We’ll catch a fox and put him in a box
And then we’ll let him go.
