STRAP AND THE EYEPIECE CAP
In the delivered condition, the Adventure Strap is

If you want to attach the eyepiece cap to the
carrying strap, this must be done at the same
time as the carrying strap is attached.

cap over the binoculars from the lens side.
ADJUSTMENT OF THE EYECUPS/
USE WITH AND WITHOUT GLASSES
The eyecups 3 can be easily adjusted by turning
and they lock securely in the selected positions.
They can be removed completely for thorough
If you want to use the binoculars with spectacles,
they remain fully screwed in (picture A), or
slightly screwed out. For use of the binoculars
without spectacles they can be screwed out by
turning in counter-clockwise direction. Two
positions are available for optimum adjustment.
If the eyepieces are heavily soiled, we recommend removing the eyecups for cleaning. To do
this, simply pull out of the comletely screwed out
position (pictures C, D).
ADJUSTMENT OF THE
The individual interocular distance can be
adjusted by bending the binoculars about the
pivot axes 6. When the interocular distance has
been set correctly, the right and left visual field
merge into a circular image.
ADJUSTMENT OF THE FOCUS/
The focus for objects at different distances is
adjusted on the Leica Trinovid HD binoculars
using the central focusing wheel 5.
The diopter ring is used to adjust for individual
visual impairments so the binoculars can be used
without spectacles; 2 this changes only the focus
of the right-hand system.
1. Close your right eye or cover the right-hand
lens. Then adjust the central focusing wheel
so that you can see the target object with
optimum focus through the left-hand
2. Close your left eye or cover the left-hand
lens. Then adjust the diopter wheel so that
you can see the target object with optimum
focus through the right-hand binocular tube.
DIOPTER SCALE READING
The user's individual value determined using the
focus adjustment can then be adjusted again
within seconds using the scale setting that has
been determined once.
Your Leica Trinovid HD binoculars have been
designed for constant use outdoors. No particular care is needed other than occasional
cleaning. Fingerprints, droplets of water, etc. on
lenses and eyepieces can be wiped off using a
soft, lint-free cloth. Breathing on the lenses
beforehand may help. Coarse soiling on the glass
surfaces, such as sand, should be removed using
a fine brush or blown off. In the case of severe
soiling, the binoculars may be cleaned by rinsing
them under running water that is hand-hot at
most. Salt water should also be washed off.
Alcohol or other chemical solutions may not be
used for cleaning.
• Make sure not to touch the glass surfaces with
your fingers, especially if you previously been
applying hand cream, insect repellent, etc.
These substances may contain chemicals that
damage or destroy the coatings on the glass
• Do not apply excessive pressure when
cleaning heavily soiled lens surfaces. Although
the coating is abrasion-resistant, it can
nevertheless be damaged by sand or salt
