Adjustment of the screw-in-type eye cups
Basically, there are three (SLC 42) or four (SLC 56) different adjustment positions available with different distances between the eye and the lens. This allows you to adjust the eye cups individually to your personal preference.
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 spectaclewearers and non-spectaclewearers.
Adjustment of interpupillary distance
To see a single round image, turn the two halves of the binoculars until no irritating shadows can be seen.
Adjustment of focusing
It is possible to bring every subject into focus from the shortest adjustment distance (see technical data sheet) to infinity by turning the focusing wheel. In the infinity position the little nose of the focusing wheel is at the top.
To achieve optimal image quality, the possibly varying visual acuity between the left and right eye must be corrected.
Use with equal acuity of both eyes:
- 1. Pull the focusing wheel outwards.
- 2. By turning the focusing wheel, set the dioptric scale to “0”. 3. Push the focusing wheel back in.
Use with varying acuity of both eyes:
- 1. Look through the left ocular with your left eye and turn the focusing wheel to focus sharply on a selected object.
- 2. Pull the focusing wheel outwards.
- 3. Now look at the same object through the right ocular with your right eye and again adjust the focusing wheel to attain optimal clarity.
- 4. Press the focusing wheel back in again.
TIP: Please note your personal dioptric setting on the dioptric scale. With it you may adjust your individual dioptric setting anytime.
Remove the covering for the tripod connector thread on the underside of the binoculars using a small coin. To mount the binoculars on a tripod, you will need the tripod adapter for SLC, which is sold separately as an accessory.
Assembly instructions for objective lens cover
Maintenance and care
You can clean high sensitive lens surfaces with the enclosed special cloth made of micro-fibres. It Maintenance and care is suitable for objective lens, ocular lens and eyeglasses. Please keep the cloth clean, as dirt can damage the lens surface. If the cloth gets dirty, it can be washed in luke-warm soapy water and air-dried. Please use it exclusively for cleaning lens surfaces!
We have designed all elements and surfaces to require little care. To ensure the long-lasting optical brilliance of your binocular, 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 binocular in its bag in a wellventilated, dry 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).

Hi we have bought EL RANGE Bino’s.
What is the BT tool for?
Congratulations on your new product! BT tool is Swarovski's universal tool and is often used for adjustments on their riflescope's turrets. With binoculars, it's used to help you unscrew the battery compartment on the bridge.
Great thanks very much for your help.
SLC 8 x 42 Bought new in UK and now in use aboard our sailboat in Greece Excellent instrument and perfect for our needs.
The only suggestion for improvement is to make available a leather case similar to the old Zeiss Jena DDR 8 x 30 binoculars with a sideways entry of the binoculars into the case. Much easier and faster access leads to safely stowing these in their case after each use while sailing.
I started having an issue where I cant get the 2 sides focused at the same time. I have followed the directions and cant get both clear at the same time.
