The Guppy made by Topcon is a dinosaur compared to the SDM3F06.

I have the SDM3E05 and it has no bells and whistles like buttons to push, it is purely a theodolite with a built in EDM and only displays H&V angles to be dialed in with a micrometer to read minutes and seconds and displays slope distances along the line of sight.

That was the first instrument I owned that needed a battery. It is still as fine as it was when purchased and less of a hassel than any since. I could at least continue to turn angles when the battery died.

That looks like the original tribrach for the instrument- no optical plummet since there is an op built into the instrument-
