      1.0 No Such EP as a Zeiss Abbe Ortho 40mm


      100% Light Transmission! No glass = 100%! ;-)


      Never made


      Unfortunately there is no such eyepiece as a 40mm Zeiss, or Carl Zeiss Jena Abbe Ortho. The attached picture shows a full set "Carl Zeiss Abbe Orthoscopic Eyepieces" with factory wooden case. These eyepieces only come in an A-4 (4mm), A-6 (6mm), A-10 (10mm), A-16 (16mm), A-25 (25mm), and A-34 (34mm) as pictured.

      They have a 1.25" (31.7mm) Barrel where the standard Carl Zeiss Orthoscopic and Carl Zeiss Jena Orthoscopic are a 0.965" (24.5mm) Barrel. The CZ and CZJ Orthoscopics were made in 4mm thru 25mm with a 24.5mm barrel. The picture of the Carl Zeiss Jena Orhtoscopic (40-O) has been cropped and you can not see the cross hair insert or M44 threaded bottom. It is a CZJ 40-O with Cross Hair attachement and has a standard Zeiss M44 thread base. It is not a Zeiss Abbe Orthoscopic.
