Getting Started
An eyepiece needs to be attached to the travelscope before use. The body has both internal and external
eyepiece connection threads to match Opticron HR2/3, HDF & SDL eyepieces.
Use the switch marked “ON/OFF” on the top of the scope body to activate and de-activate the image
stabilisation. When powered on, a green LED on the eyepiece end of the scope body will illuminate. The
image is focused by rotating the ring at the far end of the objective lens housing. If you are using a zoom
eyepiece, magnification is adjusted using the zoom ring on the eyepiece.
Please note that the stabilisation will NOT power off automatically so should be switched off manually when
not in use. When battery power is exhausted the scope can still be used without image stabilisation.
WARNING. Never under any circumstances use a travelscope to view the sun. Doing so will cause serious
damage to your eyes.
Care & Cleaning
The MMS 160 is waterproof to IPX5 standard and there are no user-serviceable parts inside. As such, the
product casing should not be opened except by trained service personnel. If your device develops a fault, our
Service Department is on hand to help you.
The MMS 160 is rubber armoured and therefore will withstand the typical bumps and knocks that, for
example, a mobile phone or MP3 player would get in normal everyday use. Avoid dropping the device on
hard surfaces and take care not to crush the device if it is packed in a rucksack or case.
In use, if the MMS 160 is subjected to fast downward (or upward) motion such as moving it rapidly from
the horizontal position at your eye to a vertical position at your waist level (or the reverse), the image
stabilisation system will temporarily cause the image to appear to shake strongly from side to side. This effect
will disappear after a couple of seconds.
Avoid subjecting the device to extreme changes of temperature. Also, when taking the unit from a very cold
e.g. outdoor environment to a warmer environment (such as indoors), the lenses may mist over. Once the
device has warmed up, the misting will disappear.
Battery Care
The batteries should be removed from the battery compartment if the device is not going to be used for any
length of time i.e. more than one month.
Cleaning
To clean the outer glass surfaces of eyepieces and objective lenses, gently remove excess dirt and dust using
compressed air or a blower brush. Breathe on exposed glass surface and then wipe with an optical cleaning
cloth in a circular motion until the surface is clean again.
Telephotography
Digiscoping with digital compact cameras, camcorders and mobile phones
Shooting high magnification photos and video through your MMS Travelscope is possible
if you have a suitable camera, camcorder or mobile phone. To find out how suitable or
not your device is for digiscoping, position it up to the viewing eyepiece and see if an
image appears on the screen. You may have to position the unit a few mm away from the
eye lens of the eyepiece and increase the zoom to get a full frame image.
To find out more about bespoke digiscoping kits and universal mounts and brackets visit the Digiscoping &
Telephotography pages at www.opticron.co.uk or contact Sales on +44 (0)1582 726522.
The MMS 160 is not suitable for telephotography with SLR cameras (digital or film).
