Leupold Spotting Scopes Instruction Manual

  • Nina 


Thank you for choosing a Leupold® spotting scope. We’ve worked tirelessly to make sure it will provide you with a lifetime of performance.

Using Leupold® Spotting Scopes

Leupold spotting scopes are equipped with twist-up eyecups to allow for ease of use by a person with or without eyeglasses. To adjust the eyecup for use while wearing eyeglasses, simply twist the eyecup until it rests in its lowest position.

To extend the eyecup, simply place fingers around the edge of the eyecup and twist it away from the spotting scope.


Magnification levels of Leupold spotting scopes can be changed by rotating the magnification selector located in front of the eyepiece.

While viewing through the scope, turning the magnification selector clockwise increases magnification, while turning it counter-clockwise decreases magnification.



1. Firmly grasp the knurled lock ring near the front of the eyepiece and unscrew the entire eyepiece from the body of the spotting scope.
2. Remove the dust cover from the front of the new eyepiece and place it on the eyepiece you just removed.
3. Firmly grasp the knurled lock ring near the front of the new eyepiece and thread the entire eyepiece into the body of the spotting scope.



1. Place the eyecup in the desired position.
2. View the object you desire to observe through the spotting scope.
3. Adjust the magnification level as desired.
4. Turn the focus adjustment dial until the image of the object being viewed is seen as crisp and sharp. For Ventana spotting scopes, the focus dial is located on the upper forward edge of the “shoulder." For Kenai HD spotting scopes, the focus dial is located around the body of the scope, just in front of the “shoulder."


Leupold spotting scopes are equipped with a 1/4-20 thread tripod adapter that will accept the standard 1/4-20 thread mounting screw found on most photographic tripods.


Leupold spotting scopes are sealed from within by several methods, including O-rings and special compounds. All seals are permanent and require no maintenance.

Should the lenses of the scope become dirty, clean them as you would any fine camera lens.

1. Use a lens brush to remove dust.
2. Fingerprints that cannot be removed by brushing can be removed with a good grade of glass cleaner. When wiping the lens, use a soft cloth and wipe from the center of the lens outward.
