Re: Using the scope
Well if it was a rifle, I would say far away, or you will get a black eye. But the recoil on a pellet rifle is backwards because the spring jerks the rifle forward, and it messes with rifle scopes, they are made to recoil back, But,,, you have a movable eyepiece in the end where you look through and it will make the cross hairs come into focus for your eyes. some one else might find them blurry. The objective lens, should be in focus no matter what. It doesn't move. and no matter what your vision is, you should be able to see clearly. If not, I'm wondering if it is fogged up. Your eye should be about 3inches, + -, Check it out. Hope this helps.

During the day: 1. Point to a far (1000 meters or more) object 2. Insert the lowest power (highest number) eyepiece e.g. 25mm 3. focus on the object. 4. Align finder to match what you see in the scope. At night. 1. Put scope out and let it reach the temperature of the outside. 2. Point finder to the moon (1st object you should always use to check scope and finder alignment) 3. Use the same low power eyepiece. 4. If everything seems fine, switch to a higher power eyepiece and enjoy the view. You may have to slightly adjust the finder to align with the main scope. If the views are blurry, the telescope may be out of collimation. Look on the internet for generic collimation instructions. If this still did not help. Throw the scope out! Its probably a piece of junk and will only discourage you.
Step 1. Adjust the eyepiece or both if both are adjustable back to zero. It should be printed on there. If it's not, then halfway. To find halfway turn them to one end, count the number of turns like 1 and a half turns for example, and then half that atnd turn it that ammount. You've now reset the binoculars to zero.
Step 2. Now to focus. Pick your target that you want to look at thoguh your binoculars. Look through the binoculars and close the eye with the adjustable eyepiece or your right eye if both are eadjustable and focus the image on the left eye with the central focus knob. Once you've got it focused close the left eye, open the right eye and if it's not in focus adjust the EYEPIECE focus, not the central one, until it's in focus. If you can't get it in focus because the eyepiece focus won't turn far enough in one direction, turn the OTHER eyepiece in the opposite direction at max, start the process again from step 2.
If it's all ok now you need to adjust the distance between the eyepieces. Open the binoculars as far as they go, look through the binoculars with both eyes on the target and move the binoculars inward slowly until you remove any black edges around the image, then move them very slowly inward until you see only one image.
try this: see the mini scope on top of the telescope?--that's called the finder scope-- you look through that to see what the telescope is aimed at, just like what a sniper does before he pulls the trigger.
put in the lowest power eyepiece you have in the telescope, the one with a high number on it.
it's a good idea to align the 'finder' with the telescope during the day time--it's much easier.
if your telescope and finder scope aren't aligned properly, aiming your telescope at any target will be off and you'll just get frustrated. to do this, look through your finder scope and pick a far away target, put in the lowest power eyepiece you have, that's the one with a high number-- high number = low power = a nice big view in the telescope. low number on eyepiece = high magnification, like a zoom lens.
always use the lowest eyepiece first, then work your way to higher magnification, if you want to get a closer look at your target.
use lowest power eyepiece in telescope--> look through finder scope -->focus the image--> switch to higher power of eyepiece for a closer look at your target.
practice this during the day until you're comfortable, then try it at night. try the moon, it's a nice big target
you can also use binoculars to check out the night sky. you can try using 7x35 or 7x50 binoculars. you see a lot more stars and it gives nice big views of the stars and constellations...and the moon...
Your binoculars are known as the Zeiss Classic or what was once known as the Dialyt. They focus differently from the usual binoculars like those mentioned. The rear wheel is to focus both binocular barrels while using them. The front focus wheel is adjust the right eyepiece to suit your right eye. Binocular manufacturers take into account each eye is slightly different. To focus the Dialyt...First close your right eye and turn the rear wheel until the image is sharp in the left barrel. Leave the focus wheel alone. Now close left eye and adjust the front wheel until the image is sharp for your right eye. The image should now be clear and in focus for both eyes. It should not be needed to use the front wheel from now on. The rear wheel is what you will use to change the focus from near to far objects.
Eyepieces are for the most part interchangeable. Your scope will have a focuser on it in one of 3 diameters. 2", 1.25", and the rare .965". Most inexpensive scope will use a 1.25" eyepiece. 2" focusers are usually found on more expensive scopes used for astrophotography due to the increased field of view with the larger diameter. Plossl eyepieces are fairly inexpensive and are good for all around use. I would suggest getting 2 one at 25mm or greater and one around 9mm. http://www.telescopes.com has a large selection however their are many suppliers out there. Good luck and happy star hopping
Are you looking set the eye relief or the focus ring?
For eye relief you need to loosen the scope in the rings, mount the rifle to your shoulder with your standard hold and cheek weld. At this point, slide the scope back and forth in the rings until you obtain a full field of view. Tighten one of the rings slightly, dismount and remount the rifle several times to ensure correct adjustment. Level scope and tighten rings a final time.
For focus adjustment (remember that you are using the eyepiece to focus on the cross hair, not your target!) loosen the lock ring and turn the eyepiece until the cross hair is focused. It is best if you check it several times by closing and opening your eye several times. The crosshair should be instantly in focus. If your eye must adjust, then you need to refocus until the focus is instant.
The two dials on the scope are for adjusting the bullet point of impact. They will typically move POI 1/4 inch at 100 yards.
