Leica 8x40B Trinovid (black)
The precise, powerful optics of the compact and extremely rugged binoculars not only convinced users, but also, eleven years after its first edition, won over the American space agency NASA. On the Apollo 11 mission in 1969 – the first moon landing – the astronauts took a Trinovid 10×40 along. The special monocular (customized for weight and size reasons) made history as the “Eye of Apollo”.
The Trinovid binoculars were introduced around sixty years ago in 1958, however, Leitz has been making binoculars since 1907
These classic Trinovid binoculars are good cosmetic condition. This classic designed binocular, recently revisited in the update version
