Eyepiece Distance Adjustment
For best viewing, the binoculars should be adjusted for the individual user so that eyepieces line up with the user’s 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:
1. Hold your binoculars in the normal viewing position.
2. Grasp each barrel firmly. While looking through the binoculars, move the barrels closer together or farther apart until you
see a single circular field. Reset your binocular to this position each time you use it. The eye distance setting is indicated
on the scale located on the binocular hinge.
Diopter Setting and Internal Center Focus
The diopter setting corrects for vision differences between the user’s two eyes, so the binoculars can be focused correctly for
both eyes. To adjust the diopter:
1. Set the right eyepiece to 0 and look at an object that is approximately 100 feet (30 m) away.
2. Keeping both eyes open, cover the right objective (front) lens with your hand.
3. Adjust center focus wheel until image in the left eyepiece appears sharp.
4. Cover the left objective (front) lens, then rotate the right eyepiece until the image appears sharp again.
5. The diopter setting is now correct for your eyes, and you need only adjust the center focus to view objects at different
distances. Note the diopter setting for future use.
Fold-down Eyecups
To use binoculars while wearing eyeglasses or sunglasses, fold the rubber eyecups down. This will allow you to bring your
eyes closer to the binoculars, improving your field of view. To use binoculars without glasses, fold the rubber eyecups up into
the extended position..
Reading the Rangefinder Reticle [400C]
The rangefinder scale is a useful navigation tool if you know the size or distance of an object. If you know an object’s size, you
can use the rangefinder to calculate its distance. Conversely, if you know the object’s distance, you can calculate its size.
1. To measure distance, simply apply the following formula:
1000 x Object Height
Distance =
Rangefinder Scale Reading
Example (to find distance): if the object is 20 meters high and the rangefinder scale
reading is 16 (Fig. 3), then:
20 m (height) x 1000
= 1,250 m (distance)
16 (rangefinder scale reading)
2. To measure object size, the formula becomes:
Object Size = Distance x Rangefinder Scale Reading
1000
Example: if the object is 1,250 meters away and the rangefinder scale reading is 16,
1,250 m (distance) x 16 = 20 m (object size)
then:
1000

Using the Compass [400C]
READING: When you look into the eyepiece, you will see a compass window with figures and lines below the field of view. The
compass shows orientations as angles: north is 0°, east is 90°, south is 180° and west is 270°. Between numbers, each line
represents 1°. After aligning the object with the rangefinder scale in the center of the field, read the compass.
LOCATING YOUR POSITION: These binoculars, together with a chart and protractor, can be used to
locate your position. For example, the binoculars plus the map in Fig. 3 could be used to determine the
location of a boat sailing within the map’s area:
1. From the boat, use the binoculars to locate the buoy shown on the chart (Fig.3). In this example,
the compass would show that the buoy is located 190° from the boat.
Fig. 3
2. Use this information to determine the direction from the buoy to the boat. (To do this, subtract 180°
if the object’s reading is 180° or greater; add 180° if the reading is less than 180°.) So, 190°
(direction from boat to buoy) - 180° = 10° (direction from buoy to boat).
3. On the map, draw a line from the buoy extending in a 10° direction (10° from magnetic north). You
now know your boat is somewhere along this line (Fig. 4).
4. To determine your boat’s exact position, use the binoculars to locate a second object, the
Fig. 4
lighthouse. The compass will show that the direction from your boat to the lighthouse is 300º.
5. Then calculate the direction from the lighthouse to your boat: 300°- 180° = 120º.
6. Finally, draw a line extending 120° from the light-house (Fig. 5). Your boat is located at the point
where the two lines intersect.

Compass Light [400C]
To read your compass in the dark, press the compass light switch (8) to illuminate it in red light.
Batteries [400C]
Two batteries (included) are required to operate the compass light. To install: unscrew the battery cover (9) on the
underside of binoculars’ main body. Install the two batteries, positive (+) side facing up, and screw the cover back into
place. All of the following batteries are suitable for use with your 400C binoculars: AG12, GP186, LR43, and 1176A.
Instructions for Care
To protect the binoculars, store them in their case and keep them in a dry area. Never leave them out in direct sunlight (such
as on a car dashboard) for long periods of time. Avoid banging and dropping.
Extremely Important Note
It is not necessary to clean binoculars internally. Any attempt to take the binoculars apart or clean them internally will result
in damage and void the warranty.
