Question about Nikon Optics
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
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.
