Any lenses? 

A seismograph meant to detect bombs or other noise from far away?

That's what I got. I can ask. I think the "General Scheme of Installation of the Chronograph" (if my xlation is correct) would be a clue, but to what I don't know.

Gun people call the thing that measures muzzle velocity a "krono".  Any old artillerymen available?

Edit: quick look into google books, https://books.google.fi/books?id=tBxWAAAAcAAJ&hl=fi&source=gbs_navlinks_s looks promising.
