While in Wetzlar, we were shown the Leica Archive.? It contains 
memorabilia from the entire history of the Leitz/Leica company. This 
container included a Leitz monocular that went to the moon on an Apollo 
mission.? Also a wooden mock-up of the M3 made during its design phase.? 
And a prototype lens turret for screw mount Leicas. I got a special 
thrill seeing that monocular.

Leica M8 and 35/2 Summicron v.4.? Enjoy!
