A classic antique style brass theodolite that may be of interest to the purveyor of engineering, survey and scientific instruments. This is a fully functional reproduction though we would not recommend that you compare this to the more serious digital theodolites. The Theodolite will need to be re calibrated. It stands 32cm high. It will make a great display piece in a bar room or to add to a collection of vintage surveying equipment.

A theodolite is a precision optical instrument for measuring angles between designated visible points in the horizontal and vertical planes. The traditional use has been for land surveying, but they are also used extensively for building and infrastructure construction, and some specialized applications such as meteorology and rocket launching.

It consists of a moveable telescope mounted so it can rotate around horizontal and vertical axes and provide angular readouts. These indicate the orientation of the telescope, and are used to relate the first point sighted through the telescope to subsequent sightings of other points from the same theodolite position. These angles can be measured with great accuracy, typically to milliradian or seconds of arc. From these readings a plan can be drawn, or objects can be positioned in accordance with an existing plan. The modern theodolite has evolved into what is known as a total station where angles and distances are measured electronically, and are read directly to computer memory.
