TURE SERIES BINOCULARS
Thank you for purchasing Celestr
on binoculars and we hope you will have many years of pleasure with them. T o maximize your enjoyment of the binoculars, please read
these instructions on use and care befor
e using them.
Adjusting the Interpupillary Distance (IPD)
Since the distance between the eyes (speciﬁcally
, the distance between the centers of the pupils) varies among individuals, the two eyepieces of the binoculars must be
correctly aligned (adjusted). This is called adjusting the interpupillary distance. T
o adjust this distance, lift the binoculars up to your eyes (using both hands) and look
through them at an object in the distance. Move the two halves of the binoculars about the hinge until you see one clear cir
cle of image through both eyes.
Since most people have a variance of vision from their left eye to their right eye, you must adjust the focusing system.
Use the following steps to achieve focus: (1) Close your right eye and look through the left side of the binoculars with
your left eye at the subject matter
. Rotate the center focusing wheel until the image appears in sharp focus; (2) Close
your left eye and look through the right eyepiece (called the diopter). Rotate the right eyepiece until the image appears
in sharp focus; (3) Now look through both eyepieces with both eyes open. Since you’ve alr
eady adjusted the right
eyepiece, use only the center focusing wheel to refocus on a new object at a dif
: Y our binocular has a diopter indicator , please note the setting for later use for faster focus adjustment.
Eyeglasses worn for nearsightedness should be wor n when using binoculars as you may not be able
to reach a sharp focus at inﬁnity without them.
Set the T wist Up Rubber Eyecups
wist the Rubber Eyecups up if you do not wear eyeglasses but fold them down if you do wear eyeglasses to obtain the maximum ﬁeld of view .
Now you are r
eady to use your binoculars --- enjoy the view!
T ripod Adaptability
These binoculars feature a built-in tripod adapter ﬁtting which is a thr
eaded screw hole underneath a cap. T o attach a binocular tripod adapter , r emove the cap and
then thread the scr
ew from the binocular tripod adapter into the thr eaded screw hole. The other end of the binocular tripod adapter attaches to a photographic tripod.
Mounting binoculars this way allows for added stability and comfort.
Care and Cleaning
Binoculars do not need routine maintenance other than making sur
e that the objective lenses and eyepieces are kept clean. If r epairs become necessary , they should be
serviced by the manufacturer or a qualiﬁed binocular r
epair company . Collimation (optical alignment) is the biggest concern with binoculars. If your binoculars are roughly
handled or dropped, ther
e is a good chance that the collimation will be out and they should be serviced. Dirty objectives and/or eyepieces mean less light transmission
and loss of brightness as well as unsharp images. Keep your optics clean! When not using your binoculars store them in the case pr
ovided. Avoid touching the glass
surfaces but if ﬁngerprints (which contain mild acid) get on them, they should be cleaned as soon as possible to avoid damaging the coatings. T
o clean the optical surfaces,
we recommend a lens/optics cleaning kit available at most photo or optical shops and follow the instructions pr
ovided closely . If you have a lot of dust or dirt accumulated,
brush it off gently with a camel’
s hair brush and/or utilize a can of pressurized air before using the cleaning kit. Alternately , you could use the Celestron LensPen (# 93575)
made especially for cleaning binoculars. Never attempt to clean your binoculars internally or try to take them apart!
Caution! Viewing the sun may cause permanent eye damage. Do not view the sun with your binoculars or even with the naked eye.
