    He seems to claim the eyepiece is included - is something else missing
    Made of aluminum and steel, this is a SUPERB German Oktant in all
    original condition with its original box!  Manufactured by C. Plath of
    Hamburg, it features the original Fl. label, and clearly indicates,
    Fl. 23750.  The instrument dates later in the war, probably between
    1943 and 1945.  Some slight marks and scratches, but nothing that
    takes away from the overall appearance.  It measures approx. 11.5" in
    length, and comes complete in the original box!  Sadly, the box has
    been re-painted.  Also included are 2 extra light bulbs, an eye piece,
    and other small parts.  I am not sure if it is functional, so I am
    selling as-is. and will leave the functionality determination to the
    winning bidder.  I have shown this EXACT type in use in the last
    photos.  Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection, or display!
