The Knight's Cross of the Iron Cross and its higher grade Oak Leaves was awarded to recognise extreme battlefield bravery or successful military leadership. It was Germany's highest military decoration at the time of its presentation to Günther Prien.
Under Prien's command, the submarine U-47 sank over 30 Allied ships totaling about 200,000 gross register tons (GRT). His most famous exploit was the sinking of the British battleship HMS Royal Oak at anchor in theHome Fleet's anchorage in Scapa Flow.  source

Little bit of history regarding Carl Zeiss, Jena factory, and particular type of Asembi;
17th November 1846, Carl Zeiss opened up an precision optical instruments shop in Jena, the ducal capital of Thuringia. He quickly ended up being the Court optician and was awash in orders for binoculars and spyglasses of all types. His success was so great that his goods were soon sold through Germany and Europe.

Carl Zeiss legacy is still in very high standards, products starting from cellphone camera lenses to NASA spaceships optics.
D.F. The DF designation are been used for Army binoculars at least until the end of the Second World War.

Asembi model was introduced as an observation binocular in circa 1912. After World War 1 there were 2 versions of this model: The civilian Asembi and the military D.F. version (D.F. = Doppelfernrohr, always a marking of a military model). D.F has a graticule (reticle, Strichplatte) and this is typical of a military model and „normal“ for a D.F.

D.F Indicates Doppelfernrohr, oculars for both eyes. In this particular piece of equipment can be used with two persons simultaneously.
Below are some old photos where you can see Asembi in action

The T coating: An additional remarkable milestone was on November 1, 1935 when employee at Zeiss (Aleksander Smakula) created and then patented antireflective (T -Transparenz) (T-Belag or Transparenz-Belag, blue anti reflection layer on the lenses) coatings thereby improving light transmission exponentially over uncoated lenses in binoculars to over eighty percentage) reducing ghost images and finding other applications for the advances of optics in lots of additional fields. The AR coatings had been a military secret until about 1940.
