Cool Need help Identifying this WW2 item


Hello my fellow friends!
I have what appears to be a WW2 Bombsight component, honestly I don't know what it is and the item does not have any markings on it. I please need for someone to help me identify the item. I linked 3 images of the item below and any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance!

It looks like some kind of an optic tracking or aiming system element, but I'm not sure and I'd gladly hear the opinion of an expert.

Thank you Luke and yes its even the same picture. Although I'm not sure that this is a navy periscope, I can't find any google images of any periscope that looks like it.
