This is an extremely rare 360 degree scientific lens that is mounted to a Graflex 4×5 Press Camera.  It is a fully functioning piece of historical hardware of the highest quality ever produced by one of the leading scientific manufacturing companies in the USA.  The lens mostly likely dates to the 1960’s and was among the first 360 degree lenses every produced.  Its purpose is to obtain a 360 degree image from a high altitude.  It weighs approximately 50 pounds, has a critical focusing lens ring as well as a distance ring below the camera and is housed in a wooden crate.
