German term or phrase: Lenkung/Schaft/Tülle
Here I am again! Parts of an endoscope, again, in a testing protocol for endoscopes -- Any ideas how to translate these terms?

Lenkung / Lichtleiter / Schaft / Tülle

Sorry. No context because they are simply in a list of parts to be tested.

Of course, Links would be helpful for bi-lingual terms.
Thanks very much!
