10 x 42 Binocular
Basic Operation
Adjust the eyecups
Center Focus
Twist-up Eyecup
The eyecups on a Intrepid HD binocular twist up and down
so any viewer can see the full field and enjoy comfortable
viewing—with or without eyeglasses.
Ocular Lens
When not using eyeglasses or sunglasses,
keep the eyecups fully extended. For
the best viewing when viewing through
eyeglasses, twist eyecups down.
Adjust the interpupillary distance
The interpupillary distance (IPD) is the distance between the
centers of the left and right eye pupils. Match the IPD of your
eyes to that of the binocular so that you see a single image that
is free of shading.
Objective Lens
Distance between the centers of the
ocular lenses.
Rotate the binocular barrels inward or
outward to line your eyes up with ocular
Properly focus the binocular
For the best views, follow this two-step
process to properly adjust the center
focus and diopter. Choose an object
that is about 20 yards away from you
and stay in the same spot until you have
adjusted the binocular for your eyes.
Carry Case
The protective case of the Intrepid HD provides safe storage
between viewing sessions. The carry strap is already attached
to the case.
Lens Covers
Adjust Diopter Setting
1. Adjust the center focus—start by closing your right eye
or covering the right objective lens with your hand. Focus
your left eye on the object and
adjust the center focus wheel until
the image is in focus. Leave the
center focus in this position as you
adjust the diopter.
2. Adjust the diopter—start by
closing your left eye or covering the left objective lens
with your hand. Lift the diopter ring to unlock and, looking
through your right eye, adjust the diopter so that the
object is in focus. Make note of this
diopter setting in case you need to
set it again. Push the diopter ring
down to lock—from this point on,
you will only need to use the center
focus wheel.
The Intrepid HD comes with a rainguard for the ocular lenses
and tethered objective lens covers. Use these covers to
protect the lenses whenever you are not viewing.
Attach the padded neckstrap to the Intrepid HD in three
simple steps. Begin with the right barrel of the binocular and
repeat the process for the left barrel.
1. Push a few inches
of the strap through the
strap attachment on the
2. Hold the buckle and thread
the end of the strap through
the buckle.
3. Adjust the overall length,
then pull tight until strap

Note: If using another type of strap, never attach metal o-rings directly onto the strap
Lens Care

Intrepid HD in its carry case between viewing sessions.

We build optics based on our commitment to your
absolute satisfaction. That’s why our products are
unconditionally guaranteed and we make this Very
Important Promise to you—a Very Important Person.

In order to enjoy the best views through your Intrepid HD
binocular, take time to regularly clean the exterior lenses:
1. Remove any dust or grit from lenses before wiping. Use
a can of pressurized air, soft camel hair brush, or an acrylic
optical brush.
2. Clear lenses of smudges, fingerprints, or eyelash oil. Fog
the lenses with your own breath, then use a non-abrasive lens
cloth to clean the lenses. Alternately, use a lens cleaning fluid
and optical paper to clean lenses.
Never use facial tissue, heavy cotton, or flannel
clothing on lenses—these materials can scratch the
surface of a lens.
Caution: Binoculars are not intended for looking
at the sun, or any other intense light source. Such
viewing could damage the retina and cornea of your
eyes—even to the point of causing blindness.
