Binocular Parts 1. Adjustable eye-piece 2. Center focus knob 1 3. Rubber eyecups 3 2 A. How to Adjust Distance Between Eyepieces For best viewing, the binoculars should be adjusted for the individual user so that the eyepieces line up with the user’s eyes: 1. Hold the binoculars in a normal viewing position. 2. Grasp each barrel firmly. While looking through the binoculars, move the barrels until you see a single circular field of view. Reset the binoculars to this position each time you use them. The eye distance setting is indicated on the scale located on the binocular hinge. B. Diopter Setting and Central Focusing 1. Set the right eyepiece (1) to zero and look at a distant object. 2. Keeping both eyes open, cover the right objective (front) lens with your hand, then adjust the center focus wheel (2) until the image in the left eyepiece appears sharp. 3. Cover the left objective (front) lens with your hand, then rotate the right eyepiece until the image appears sharp again. 4. Diopter setting is now correct for your eyes, and you need only adjust the center focus to view objects at different distances. Note this diopter setting for future use. C. Roll-down Eyecups To use binoculars while wearing eyeglasses or sunglasses, roll down the eyecups. This will allow you to bring your eyes close to the binoculars for an improved field of view. D. Floating Strap Prior to water activities, make sure the floating strap is securely attached to the binoculars. This strap is designed to keep the binoculars afloat if they are dropped into the water. E. Instructions for Care 1. For best results, always store the binoculars in their case. 2. Clean lenses with a soft, lintless cloth when needed. 3. Any remaining dirt or smudges can be removed by adding a drop or two of isopropyl alcohol to the cloth. 4. After exposure to saltwater, rinse binoculars in fresh water to prevent damage from corrosion. 5. Store binoculars in a dry area. Very Important It is not necessary to clean binoculars internally. Attempting to take binoculars apart or clean them internally will result in damage. Caution Do not use this product to view the sun. Looking directly into the sun, with or without binoculars, can cause permanent eye damage.
