Adjustment of the twist-in eyecups
In principle, you can choose between four different setting positions that provide varying distances between your eye and the lens. You can set the optimal distance according to your personal preference. This is determined by your facial structure and whether or not you wear spectacles.
Pos. A: Initial position without spectacles: For this, twist out the eyecups anticlockwise to the full extent.
Pos. B: Initial position with spectacles: Twist in the eyecups clockwise until they stop.
Pos. C and D: Alternative positions or interim adjustment stages for spectacle wearers and non-spectacle wearers.
Interpupillary distance adjustment
To see a single round image, rotate the two halves of the binoculars until no irritating shadows can be seen.
To adjust your object focus from the shortest focusing distance (see Technical Data Sheet) to infinity, simply turn the focusing wheel. In the infinity position, the little nose of the focusing wheel is situated at the top.
Looking for a protective bag?
To achieve optimal image quality, it is necessary to correct any varying visual acuity between the left and right eye.
Use with equal acuity of both eyes:
Pull the focusing wheel outwards.
By turning the focusing wheel, set the dioptric scale to “0”.
Push the focusing wheel back in.
Use with varying acuity of both eyes:
Look through the left ocular with your left eye and turn the focusing wheel to focus sharply on a selected object.
Pull the focusing wheel outwards.
Now look at the same object through the right ocular with your right eye and again adjust the focusing wheel to attain optimal clarity.
- Press the focusing wheel back in again.
Please note your personal dioptric value on the dioptric scale.
Assembly instructions for objective lens cover
Maintenance and care
You can clean high sensitive lens surfaces with the enclosed special microfibre cloth. It is suitable for objective lens, ocular lens and spectacles.
Please keep the cloth clean, as dirt can damage the lens surface. If the cloth becomes soiled it can be washed in lukewarm soapy water and left to dry. Please only use for cleaning lens surfaces!
In need of cleaning supplies?
We have designed all elements and surfaces to require little care. To ensure the long-lasting optical brilliance of your binoculars, you should keep the glass surfaces free of dirt, oil and grease. When cleaning the lenses, first remove larger particles with an optical lens brush. For the subsequent thorough cleaning we recommend breathing onto the lens surface to form a coat of condensation and then cleaning it with a soft, moist cloth. The housing is best cleansed with a soft, moist cloth (don’t use the lens-cleaning cloth).
In the event of hard-to-remove dirt (e.g. sand) the eye cups can be unscrewed and cleaned very easily.
You should keep your binoculars in their bag in a dry, well ventilated, place. If the instrument is wet, it must be dried prior to storage. In tropical regions or regions with a high degree of humidity the best place to store the instrument in is an air-tight receptacle along with a moisture-absorbing agent (e.g. silica gel).

Swarovski have just sent me replacement eyecups which I find are impossible to fit because I cannot unscrew the old ones! Back to my old trusty Opticron binoculars.
I just bought Swarovski EL binoculars. I want to take them to Africa Tuesday but may have to return them. I am extremely frustrated. I can get the wheel to pull out to set the diopter - at least I think that is what I am doing- but I cannot get the focus wheel to move/turn unless it is pulled out to the diopter settings. The manual is useless to help me. I would appreciate a prompt reply because I need to use them ASAP. Or return them before my 30 days is up. As I said I only have a few days before I leave and I really want to keep them and take them with me. How do I get the focus wheel to move. I have watched the diopter instruction video repeatedly.
I have just consulted both paper and on line manuals when trying to adjust the diopter setting. Neither mention the lock on the focusing wheel that my 8x32 ELs have. Turning the top inset on the wheel towards the tiny unlocked padlock symbol enables the wheel to be pulled up to adjust the diopter range. However, after adjusting the diopter and pushing the wheel back down, I still found it tricky to get the wheel locked in the right position to re-engage the focus wheel. Surprising on expensive binnoculars.
