    Re: Was this optical instrument designed forcelestial navigation?

    For formal perfection one might put it as
    Kimmtiefen-Messgerät (Dip measuring device)
     
    Kiimmtiefenmesser is a bit too informal maybe for an officer (just a "dip meter")
     
    best regards

    Wolfgang, thanks!  Kimmtiefenmesser is  fine with me, that's what I wanted was a word that made sense both technically and linguistically.
