To help you get the best results from your equipment please read the following instructions carefully. Adjusting to obtain a single picture (binoculars) To adjust to the spacing of your eyes simply rotate the two sides of the binocular around the centre hinge until a single rounded picture is obtained when looking through both eyepieces. Some roof prism binoculars have two hinges and a single rounded picture is obtained by rotating both hinges simultaneously around the centre focusing plate. Adjusting for maximum sharpness (binoculars) Many people have slightly different vision between their eyes. When using binoculars, this difference can be easily compensated for by setting the single eyepiece adjustment located on the right hand side of the binocular below the eyepiece or on the eyepiece itself. The marks on the housing show the difference in visual acuity between your eyes on a dioptre scale. To set the binoculars correctly, close your right eye and look through the left eyepiece with your left eye and using the centre focus wheel - focus on an object of your choice until it is clear and sharp. Next, close your left eye and look through the right eyepiece with your right eye. You may find the object being viewed is not absolutely sharp and this can be corrected by rotating the right hand side adjustment ring or eyepiece (but without turning the centre focus wheel) until the object being viewed becomes sharp. The binoculars are now set and a perfectly clear and sharp image should be attainable when using both eyes together. To focus at different distances simply rotate the centre focus wheel. in the ‘down’ position when viewing with glasses. Doing this will ensure the maximum available field of view is obtained. Be sure to return the eyecups to the ‘up’ position if you or anybody else wants to view without glasses. For ‘independent eyepiece focus’ binoculars, usually 7x50 Marine binoculars without a centre focus wheel, focusing at close range is facilitated by turning the left and right eyepieces simultaneously. (i) Gently remove excess dirt and dust using a compressed air device or blower brush. Caution: Hard and persistent rubbing of dirty surfaces can cause abrasive scratches on the surface of the glass which may distort viewing. Wearing glasses Many Opticron binoculars and monoculars are designed to offer you the full field of view when wearing glasses. The rubber eyecups fitted to these instruments are designed to position your eyes correctly to get the maximum comfortable field of view with or without glasses and are often unique to each individual model. If the eyepieces have a fold down or retractable eyecup they should be used Care and cleaning Binoculars and monoculars require little maintenance but occasionally the outside surfaces of the eyepieces and objective lenses will need cleaning. To avoid damaging these surfaces please read the following carefully. (ii) Breathe on exposed glass surface and then wipe with an optical cleaning cloth (code 30277) in a circular motion until the surface is clean again. Do not attempt to dismantle the instrument as this will invalidate the guarantee. Cold weather In cold weather, equipment not hermetically sealed and filled with nitrogen may steam up due to heat transfer from the hands through the casing to the cold air trapped inside. Try to avoid this by using gloves and leaving the instrument to stand when transferring from a cool to a warm environment. Opticron rainguard (binoculars) A rainguard will help protect the eyepieces from rain, snow, dust and accidental damage when in use. If your binoculars are not supplied complete with a rainguard, you may be able to purchase one to suit by contacting us at the address overleaf. WARNING Never under any circumstances use a binocular to view the sun. Doing so will cause serious damage to your eyes. We hope you will get a great deal of pleasure from your new Opticron binocular/monocular. If you have any problems or damage the instrument in any way our Service Department is on hand to help you.
