Need help to identify old theodolite.

Hey Guys, i think you are the community who are the most aware of what's was used in the good old days. These 2 survey equipment are stored in my basement for years and now i wonder what to do with it. Here's 3 pics of these heavy beast. Thanks in advance for your help.

Clockwork Curator / Dwarven Theodolite / Dwarven wolf

I am roleplaying as a robot in ESO.

I joined 5 trade guilds so I was rich enough to get the following with golds. Stonekeeper Arm pack is still available at the crownstore at this moment.

Clockwork Curator : from the rune box Clockwork Reliquary. Last I check on TTC is 4.3mils golds, I paid 5mils on it. If you can get a good raiding guild go ahead and farm it.

Dwarven Ebon Wolf : Antiquities

Dwarven Theodolite : Quest reward

Weapons:

Stonekeeper Arms Pack you can buy it at the Crownstore now or farm it at Frostvault

Opal Engine Guardian weapons Staff/Dagger/Shield. You can farm it during the undaunted event, or buy it with golds from guild traders. They are pretty expensive. for example I paid 3mils for the staffs.

Vvardenfell - Nchuleftingth - Dwarven Theodolite Shoulder - Not dropping 3+ weeks of grinding

I have been grinding Vvardenfell's - Nchuleftingth for more than 3 weeks, hours at a time and I have not gotten a Dwarven Theodolite Shoulder. I have gotten multiples of the rest but not that one. Is it that we cannot get this pet anymore? I am at a loss. I REALLY want this pet and I have been working so hard at this. A friend is also grinding with me with the same issue. He has 4 eyes but no shoulders. We have all the rest of the parts. We have had them for a long while now. Here is info on the pet https://elderscrolls.fandom.com/wiki/Dwarven_Theodolite

FE'er JTolan proves curved earth with theodolite - And admits to gravity!

So JTolan finally got himself a theodolite! And he super carefully measured the height of a mountain, confirmed the globe model to within 1ft at 14.85 mile distance! Good job JTolan!

(Then he goes on and tries to blame it on the gravitational pull of nearby mountains tipping the level in his theodolite. Oh well for water seeking it's own level!)

Here's his new video - I've linked to the timecode where he starts the theodolite section because he goes on with a bunch of other nonsense first: https://youtu.be/p4i38tNiYyw?t=1047

Below is my comment to his video where I go over the math if anyone's interested.

But in short, according to JTolan's own measurement, there is over 100 feet of missing height at 14.85 miles if the earth is flat.

However if it's a globe, the mountain is measures 21 feet higher than it should be on a globe.

Ironically, standard atmospheric refraction for 14.85 miles is 22 feet. So yeah, globe model confirmed! Flat earth debunked.

Here's the math I left on his video:

Thank you! I'm so glad you got a theodolite! It looks like you're using just one of the vertical angle readings, which has an error of 12 feet (0.009 degrees.)

Doing the calculations a little more carefully, here's the average between right-face and left-face (forward and reverse) readings:

6.86797 degrees.

For anyone interested, the mountain peak seems to be 10813 feet high at 33.814726,-116.679427, and the observation location is 1243 feet at 33.971670,-116.502475 according to google earth.

Double checking google earth, the map distance (presumably straight line) 14.85 miles.

Thus, using trig, and not accounting for refraction, and using your theodolite reading, the mountain measures to be 10687 feet high: (tan(6.86797 degrees) * 14.85 * 5280)+1243=10687

That's 10813-10687=126 missing feet! JTolan is measuring 126 missing feet of height on the mountain!

And guess how many missing feet there should be over 14.85 miles on the globe? (8*(14.85^2))/12=147 feet.

That's a difference of 147-126=21 feet!

If the earth is flat, JTolan's measurement was 126 feet in error. If the earth is a globe, then JTolan's measurement was only 21 feet in error.

But wait, we haven't accounted for refraction yet! The globe model says there should be 21 more missing feet than JTolan measured.

Standard refraction is 1 degree per 932 miles: tan(14.85/932 degrees)*14.85*5280=22!

Folks, standard refraction for 14.85 miles is 22 f

Theodolite equivalent on Android?

Hey guys I use an app call Theodolite on iOS regularly to grab the coordinates of things like manholes or drainage structures that were missed in an initial survey.

Is there any decent equivalent on Android? I can snap a longitude, latitude with accuracy usually within a few feet. Even better if I can snap a pair or survey Controls points. This goes to a log I can export to CSV and import into CAD super easily. Let’s me include a note with each point as well that can match up with my survey database.
