Using your BT80M-A Vixen Binocular Telescope
1. To install on a photo tripod, screw the photo tripod adapter on the pan head of the tripod.
2. Aligning 3 Dots: Align the three dots marked on the eyepiece, focusing ring and prism housing in
red for the right side of the binocular telescope and in green for the left side. Optical axis is now
collimated and focus is adjusted to infinity.
3. Adjust the inter pupillary distance: Hold the right and left prism housings with your hand and
look through the binocular telescope while turning them until one clear circle of image is seen.
4. Focusing: Close your left eye and look through the right eyepiece with your right eye. Rotate the
focusing ring of the right eyepiece until the image appears in sharp focus. Next, close your right
eye and look through the left eyepiece with your left eye. Rotate the focusing ring of the left
eyepiece until the image appears in sharp focus.
