There are 2 allen screws on the fish eye bubble that can be adjusted to correct that problem.

First level the instrument;

Then turn 180 degrees

Adjust the vial until the bubble is half way from where it is back towards the inner circle.

Relevel the level using the foot screws

Then turn 180 degrees again (back to where you started)

It should be mostly fixed, however if it is not just repeat the steps above; it gets exponentially better everytime until you can no longer detect the error.

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.

My windage has bottomed out to the left, and I still need 6 more inches to zero.


Try this:
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!

Is there an adapter available to attach my Nikon D40 to my Nikon RA11 spotting scope?


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.

I bought my Eagle Optics Denali spoting scope a few years ago and haven't used it much. I am now retired and would like to start using it. I would like to attach a Nikon SLR camera to the spoting...


Hi David,
Unfortunately, there isn't a good solution for adapting the Denali spotting scope to an SLR camera body. Your best option for tele-photography through that scope would be using a small, point-and-shoot type camera.
If you want more details, don't hesitate to contact me at Eagle Optics. I'd be happy to walk you through the process.

Hi, I am going to purchase a # 8411 Nikon monarch 2.5-10-42 rifle scope. I intend to mount it on a Colt AR 15. They tell me that I can mount this scope on the carry handle. I have always mounted as...


I think you will very unhappy if you mount it on the carry handle. I suggest removing it and getting a Nikon M-223 mount, YOu might also want to check out the M-223 line of scopes. The 3-12x42 with Rapid Action Turret might really surprise you. I don't have one freind who hasn't tried mine out and not bought one. Hard to argue with that.

Can't zero scope


lifetime warranty on that scope...i say take it back, get another and try again. if you are doing everything right, then i would say it is a internal problem with the scope. nikon's are a really good scope, but rule everything out.
