ADJUSTMENTS

Ideal for people wearing glasses

To ensure that people wearing glasses also have an optimal field of view MINOX binoculars are fitted with rotating eyecups.

For use without wearing glasses

Those who do not wear glasses must turn the eyecups at both eyepieces in counterclockwise direction until they engage in the extended position. The binoculars are now set at the correct distance to the eyes.

For use with glasses

Those who wear glasses must leave the rotating eyecups on both eyepieces in the original position (as delivered) or, if necessary, turn the eyecups clockwise until they noticeably engage. In this setting you can enjoy the entire field of view without disturbing interferences at the edges.

The right distance between the eyes (inter-pupillary distance)

Look into the eyepieces of your binoculars and adjust the angle of the hinged tubes until you have a singular circular image.

FOCUSING

For a pin-sharp image, definition you must adjust the optics of the binoculars to your individual vision. To do this, please proceed as follows:

1. First, look at an object far away. With the right eye closed, turn the focusing knob until the object in view has become perfectly sharp.

2. Next, look at the same object in the distance with the left eye closed and turn the diopter adjustment ring on the right eyepiece until the object is perfectly sharp.

3. Your MINOX binoculars are now set to the individual vision of both eyes.

4. To observe objects at various distances, use the focus adjustment knob to obtain a clear and sharp image.

 

Attention: Do not use binoculars to look into the sun, this could lead to irreparable eye damage.

ATTACHING A TRIPOD

For a shudder-free image, we recommend using a tripod, especially with binoculars with a higher magnification. The MINOX tripod adapter (order no. 80405832) is available as an optional accessory for this purpose.

Remove the screw cap (6) on the bottom of the binoculars and attach the MINOX tripod adapter into the screw socket. Keep the screw cap (6) in a safe place and reattach it after removing the tripod adapter.

MAINTENANCE AND CARE

To provide as much protection as possible for your MINOX product, it is strongly recommended to use the carrying case when storing your binoculars.

Carefully remove dirt and dust from the housing with a soft moist cloth. If your binoculars have been exposed to saltwater, thoroughly rinse them off with warm water and dry carefully as saltwater can be aggressive to the lenses, detrimentally affecting their optical quality.

Contamination of the lenses by foreign bodies like sand, dust, grease, waterdrops or fingerprints reduce the image quality of your MINOX binoculars. Foreign bodies should be carefully removed using a very soft brush before cleaning the lenses. To avoid damage to the lens surfaces, it is strongly advisable to use specially developed optical cleaning materials to remove fingerprints, grease etc. from the lenses. We recommend using the MINOX optical cleaning set (order nr. 80405463).

SERIAL NUMBER

Turn the left eyecup counterclockwise to find the serial number on the underside of the ocular. It is important that you make a note of this number for the event of loss.
