The binoculars appear in The Eye and the Prime Object. They are barely visible in one of the glass cylinders when Joe Miller and Karl Kreutzfeld enter the vault.

The powers of the binoculars, if they exist, are completely unknown.

The Binoculars are a folding compact model called Compak. They are somewhat rare, showing up on eBay about every six months.

Useful eBay search terms:

compak binoculars
opera glasses

Re: The Binoculars


I discovered a second type of binoculars (Sportster) that correspond to the image and edited the article accordingly.

If you come across one again, be sure to grab the image and any information you can get.

Weird how things work out, looking for the Glory:

And found something else.

They call it the ButterFly. From what I saw the labeling is inconsistent on certain pairs, but they do exist.

PS: Sorry for the bad image quality, they're second hand. Hope to have better soon.

Re: The Binoculars


That does tend to complicate things. I see now that the binoculars have the same problem as the knife: for some reason everyone decided to use the same emblem.

I have to sign off for now. Tomorrow, or very soon, we will have to get to work on this problem.

Re: The Binoculars


I updated the article to reflect this new information. I am still open to input.

I think we have invented a new branch of archaeology; but, of course, it has already been named objectology.

Re: The Binoculars


I'm pretty sure that they are Pamex, because you can see the little X in the right side of the label.

I’m pretty sure that Chucklbunny just solved the mystery. He should be along shortly to explain.
