This telescope was in place so that visitors could get closeup looks at the sea lions internal link on the nearby docks. The telescope was free to use, but the optics were merely adequate.

On a hill overlooking the town of Karlsruhe in Germany, a pay-for-use telescope was set up along with a handy guide to the sights. This hill was in the center of the zoo.

Binocular telescopes were set up along the wharf so that one could view either the surfers on one side, or the boardwalk on the other side. This telescope lacked inter-ocular adjustment so was useless as a binocular. The was a pay-for-use telescope.
