Installation and Use
Attaching Adapter to 8” Dome
1. Check to see that there is a thin film of lubricant on the
Port Base and Adapter O-ring. Each O-ring should appear
slick. When removing an o-ring, use a smooth nonmetallic
object such as a guitar pick or toothpick to avoid
scratching the o-ring sealing area. Apply an even thin film
of lubricant on the o-ring, just enough to make it slightly
shiny. Avoid dry spots or excessive buildup of lubricant
which can attract debris. Use ONLY Ikelite lubricant.
Flat Surface

2. Set Dome face first on table or flat surface - Diagram A.
3. Make sure the Port Base and Adapter O-rings are free
of hair or other debris. Attach the Adapter by rotating
clockwise into the 8” dome Base Plate until firmly snug,
Diagram A. DO NOT overtighten, otherwise, the Adapter
will be hard to remove.
Adapter Flange will be flush with the Dome Base Plate
when properly tightened, Diagram B. Once Adapter
is tight, flip 8-inch Dome over. Turn Adapter Securing
Thumbscrews counterclockwise so at least 4-5 threads
are visible. This will allow the Adapter to slide over the
Port Base, Diagram B.
4. Once attached, rotate Port clockwise so the two large
protruding sections of the Shade are facing the 6 and 12
o’clock positions. This will reduce or eliminate potential
Adapter Flange
Port Base
5. Tighten each Thumbscrew until it stops. All Thumbscrews
should be flush and snug against the port body surface
when properly tightened - Diagram C. DO NOT
overtighten or use tools to tighten.

Adjusting 8” Dome Shade
The Dome Shade protects the dome surface and allows the
port to be set face down on a flat surface. The Shade also
blocks light to reduce glare.
6. If necessary, reorient or replace the Shade so the two
large protruding sections are facing the 6 and 12 o’clock
positions. Loosen the 4 Set Screws in the Dome shade to
lift and remove. Retighten the Set Screws once the Shade
is reattached and reoriented. This will reduce or eliminate
any vignetting that is present after the shade is installed. If
vignetting still occurs, remove shade or crop the image in
7. Tighten screws so they are snug. DO NOT overtighten.
