Your Bushnell binocular is a precision instrument designed to provide many years of pleasurable
viewing. This portion of the booklet will help you achieve optimum performance by explaining how
you can adjust the binocular to your eyes, and how to care for this instrument. Read the instructions
carefully before using your binocular.
How to Adjust For Distance Between Your Eyes
The distance between the eyes, called "interpupillary distance," varies from
person to person. To achieve perfect alignment of lens to eye, follow these
simple steps.
Fig. 1
1. Hold your binocular in the normal viewing position.
2. Grasp each barrel firmly. Move the barrels closer together or further apart
until you see a single circular field. Always re-set your binocular to this position before using.
How to Adjust For Individual Eye Strength
As individual eyesight varies from one person to another, most Bushnell binoculars have a diopter setting
feature which allows you to fine-tune the binocular to your vision. Follow the focusing instructions below
for your type of binocular.
1. Adjust interpupillary distance. (Figure 1)
Fig. 2
2. Set the "diopter setting" (Figure 2) to zero and view a distant object.
3. Keep both eyes open at all times.
4. Using a lens cover or your hand, cover the objective (front) lens of the
same side of the binocular that has the "diopter setting." This is usually
the right side. (The left side on zoom models.)
5. Using the center focus wheel, focus on a distant object with fine detail (e.g., brick wall, tree
branches, etc.) until it appears as sharp as possible.
6. Uncover the objective lens on the diopter side, cover the other objective lens, then view the same object.
7. Using the "diopter setting" adjustment ring, focus the same object being viewed. Caution should
be used as over turning or forcing the diopter eyepiece can cause damage or cause the eyepiece to
break away from the chassis.
8. Your binocular should be adjusted for your eyes. Focus at any far or near distances can now be
attained simply by turning the center focus wheel. Make a note of the diopter setting for your eyes
for future reference.
EYECUPS (Figure 3)
Your Bushnell binocular is fitted with rubber roll-down eyecups designed for
your comfort and to exclude extraneous light. If you wear sun/eyeglasses, roll
down the eyecups. This will bring your eyes closer to the binocular lens thus
providing improved field of view.
Fig. 3
Your Bushnell binocular will provide years of trouble-free service if it receives the normal care you would
give any fine optical instrument. Non-waterproof models should not be exposed to excessive moisture.
1. If your binocular has roll-down, flexible eyecups, store it with the eyecups up. This avoids excessive
stress and wear on the eyecups in the down position.
2. Avoid banging and dropping.
3. Store in a cool, dry place.
4. CAUTION: Looking directly at the sun with your binocular may be very harmful to your eyes.
5. Never expose your ImageView binocular to any type of excessive of liquid or fluid, as the binocular
is not water/fogproof.
6. Take the batteries out of your ImageView if you are not going to use for a long period of time. (Make
sure you download any pictures from your camera before you remove the batteries out of the camera.)
1. Blow away any dust or debris on the lens (or use a soft lens brush).
2. To remove dirt or finger prints, clean with a soft cotton cloth rubbing in a circular motion. Use of
a coarse cloth or unnecessary rubbing may scratch the lens surface and eventually cause permanent
damage. A "microfiber" cleaning cloth (available at most photo dealers) is ideal for the routine
cleaning of your optics.
3. For a more thorough cleaning, photographic lens tissue and photographic-type lens cleaning fluid
or isopropyl alcohol may be used. Always apply the fluid to the cleaning cloth – never directly on
the lens.
