Here is a jpeg of my Docter 40X80/500 bino mounted on a Telementor tripod. This bino uses a pair of the famous 12.5mm 90 degree Docter/Zeiss eyepieces.

Hi Joe,

Those are beautiful binoculars - thanks for posting the picture. Wow, I had never heard of 90deg. EP's. These would give you 2.25deg FOV at 40x which is quite amazing. Do they stay sharp to the edges?

Perhaps you could share a little more information about the manufacturer with the forum. Everyone knows about Zeiss quality, but is Docter also German?
