Viewing with and without glasses

When viewing without glasses, use the device with the eyecup extended. To do this, turn the eyecup (Fig. 4) to the left (anti-clockwise) and upwards to the top click stop position (Illustration A).

The eyecup can be locked in four positions – at the bottom and top and in two intermediate positions. These adjustment options allow the the distance of the eye from the exit pupil to be varied according to the specific requirements of each user.

When viewing with glasses, turn the eyecup down to the right (clockwise) until it locks in the lowest click stop position (Illustration B).

Cleaning and replacing the eyecups

The eyecups (complete modules) can be removed from the binoculars for replacement or cleaning. Turn the eyecup (Fig. 4) upwards to the stop, then unscrew it completely via the thread (continue to turn in the same direction). After cleaning or replacement, turn the eyecup clockwise to the lowest click stop position. Finally, place the eyecup onto the binoculars and screw on well by turning it clockwise until it stops and tightens.

Adjusting the interpupillary distance

Adjust the two barrels relative to each other about the central axis until you see one circular field of vision when viewing with both eyes.


The binoculars have a focusing knob (Fig. 1/3) and a diopter adjustment wheel (Fig. 1/1). To adjust, close your right eye and focus the image in the left barrel using the centre focusing knob (Fig. 1/3). Then close your left eye and, if necessary, adjust the focus in the right barrel using the diopter adjustment wheel (Fig. 1/1). The diopter adjustment is provided with a scale with “+” and “–” and has an index point as a reference point (setting the diopter adjustment for different users).

Note: Always use the same object to focus both images! For subsequent focusing on varying distances, use only the focusing knob (Fig. 1/3).

Mounting the carrying strap and the protective covers

The carrying strap, the eyepiece cap and the protective lens cap are supplied with the binoculars. Attach the carrying strap to the eyelets provided on the binoculars, and mount the eyepiece cap on the strap as shown in Figs. 2, 3 and 5.

The strap for the protective lens cap is attached directly (either right or left) to the protective lens cap. To fasten on the device, use either the carrying strap or one of the two carrying strap eyelets.

Note: Simply pass the carrying strap through the eyelets on the eyepiece cap. Before attaching the carrying strap, as shown in Fig. 3, the strap length should be set at the desired length by shortening or lengthening the strap. Follow the same sequence for the opposite side. Some prefer to thread through the cap on both sides, and some on only one.

Use of the eyepiece cap

The eyepiece cap is kept on the eyecups. Remove the eyepiece cap with your index fingers before using the binoculars.

Use of the protective lens cap

The protective lens cap is kept on the eyecups. Remove the protective lens cap with your index fingers before using the binoculars.

Mounting on a tripod

Binoculars from the Zeiss CONQUEST HD series can be mounted on any commercial camera tripod using the ZEISS Tripod adapter 1/4” or the ZEISS universal tripod adapter for binoculars. The order numbers for ZEISS tripods and the Binofix tripod adapter can be found under Accessories for Zeiss CONQUEST HD.

Care and maintenance

The binoculars are provided with ZEISS LotuTec® coating. The effective protective coating for the lens surfaces noticeably reduces contamination of the lenses through a special smooth surface and the combined beading effect. All types of contamination adhere less and can be quickly and easily removed, smear-free. The LotuTec® coating is also durable and abrasion resistant.

We recommend using the ZEISS lens cleaning cloth (included) to clean the surface of the lenses. Even grease, fingerprints and dirt can be removed with no effort and without smears. Do not wipe coarse dirt particles (e.g. sand) from the lenses; instead blow off or remove with a fine brush. Other textiles, such as clothing or handkerchiefs can scratch the lenses and statically charge them.

We recommend regular cleaning of the lens surfaces. Contamination, especially grease or fingerprints, can attack the lens surfaces after a while. Dry storage and keeping the outer lens surfaces well ventilated, especially in the tropics, helps to prevent a possible mould film forming on the optics.
