Hi i get the scope to level were the bubble is center but when i move it from the spot level to the spot across from it the bubble move out of ceter by alot i then level it to that spot only to spin it to the other spot and it is out of level again my problem is that my understanding is that once the scope is level it should remain level but when i level it and move it from point to point it comes out of level very frustrating
You're level, I'm assuming is an Automatic Level. The way it works (Automatically) is that there is a compensator (weight) hanging from the optics, keeping it level with during minor inconsistencies. You need to take it to a survey shop and have it calibrated. My guess is that your compensator is sticking inside, throwing your shots way off.

If you are at the extreme left adjustment limit..........
turn the l/r dial all the way to the right and count the clicks. Turn the dial back 1/2 the number of clicks counted. you are at center point. Shoot one round at target. Elevation is unchanged and you should be on paper. Put up a 4x4 poster board with a 3 inch black circle as your aim point. Walk the bullet to center of black spot one shot at a time. DO NOT HEAT UP BARREL AND EXPECT ACCURACY!! If this does not work......toss scope and start over!
You might want to pull out a level and make sure that the game is at the right angle. It is possible that the game is too level and so the ball doesn't have enough pull to come down the play field. Take off the glass and place the ball in the top center of the playfield if it is properly leveled the ball should roll straight down the center of the playfeild.
I assume you are talking about a bubble level. If so, you should be able to remove the cover over the bubble and find adjusting screws used to calibrate the level. Make sure the bottom surface is free of nicks and rust and is not twisted or bowed. To test for bow, after you have removed any nicks or rust, set the level on a smooth flat surface. Try to " spin " the level gently from one end. If it rotates about the center of the level it is bowed with the center high. If the center is high enough to rock the level you will never get it adjusted until you correct that condition. If it rotates about the end of the level it is bowed with the center low. If your surface is reasonably flat you can rub the level and look for shiney spots on the bottom. If it worn badly have the bottom resurfaced. If it is reasonably flat on the bottom, find a smooth, flat surface that you think is reasonable level. Set the level on the surface and mark its position. Take note of the bubble position, even if it all the way to one side. Reverse the level position 180 degrees and note the position of the bubble again. Make an adjustment to move the bubble half of the difference between the two readings and repeat the notations of the bubble and reverse position bubble. Continue until you obtain the same bubble reading in each position. If you don't get a final reading that is on the scale of the level, find a surface that is more level and try again. As long as the surface is level within the range of the level scale you should be able to adjust it until you get the same reading in each position. (If the surface is not level within the range of the level scale you can't complete the calabration.) The final reading should then be the amount the surface is out of level.
Sorry but your out of luck with that combination. Nikon only made SLR adapters for their Fieldscope line of spotters, none for the Sky and Earth series. The camera adapters are very proprietary so you won't be able to use another manufacturer's SLR adapter to solve this one. Best Regards, Ben Lizdas Sales Manger Eagle Optics www.eagleoptics.com
I just assisted a friend "re-calibrate" his D.W. L6-20 Level Transit. Follow the following steps. 1. Set up the tripod & transit in the garage. Get the platform with the protractor, close to level. 2. Position the telescope at "0". The telescope should be over 2 of the adjusting screws. 3. Adjust the screws to get the top bubble close to level. Adjust with a screwdriver the spring loaded screw to get the bubble closer to center. 4. Rotate the scope 180 degrees. Note the difference in the bubble position. Split the difference from the first bubble location by adjusting the same top screw. 5. Rotate back to 0. Adjust the same top screw to split the difference in bubble position. 6. Rotate back to 180 degrees. The bubble should be off by the same amount. Adjust the 2 bottom screw to place the level in the center. 7. Rotate back to 0. The bubble should not move. 8. Rotate to 90 degrees and adjust the 2 bottom screws to place the bubble in the center. 9. Rotate to 270 degrees. The bubble should be centered. 10. From this point on, all you need to do is place the level on the tripod and position it over your reference point with a plumb bob. Adjust the bottom 2 screws at 0 and again at 90. The level is set to use.
