      1.0 No Such EP as a ZAO 8mm


      100% light transmission since there's No Glass! ;-)


      Never made such an eyepiece


      Unfortunately there is no such eyepiece as an 8mm Zeiss, Carl 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 Carl Zeiss Orthoscopic and Carl Zeiss Jena Orthoscopic are a 0.965" (24.5mm) Barrel. The CZ and CZJ Orthoscopic was made in an 8mm and 12.5mm.
