HOW TO USE THE MONOCULAR

HOW TO ATTACH THE SMARTPHONE TO THE MONOCULAR?
Step 1. Put the phone on the holder and adjust the width with the horizontal knob.
Step 2. Adjust the camera aiming to the circular opening of the adapter and turn the side knob to fix the angle of the phone.
Step 3. Remove the wrist strap and screw the tripod thread under the monocular. Make sure that the monocular is stable standing on a flat surface and the tripod is connected firmly.

Step 5. Open the camera and zoom the image to remove the black corners and adjust the focus dial ring to have a clearer vision.
CLEANING AND CARING FOR MONOCULAR LENS
The monocular does not require particular maintenance but to ensure long life and optimal performance over time, it is necessary to protect it during and after each use. The lenses cannot be repaired or replaced, for this reason, you need to pay more attention.
The monocular has two lenses: the ocular lens and the objective lens and both must be kept clean to ensure maximum visibility. This does not mean that you have to clean them after each use, but on the contrary, frequent cleaning can scratch the lens and damage the external coatings.
To remove dirt or fingerprints, use a microfiber cloth and gently wipe in a circular motion. The use of rough cloth, paper products, such as tissue paper or toilet paper or unnecessary rubbing can scratch the surface of the lens causing permanent damage.
As an alternative to the microfiber cloth, you can also use the glasses cloth which is ideal for delicate lenses.
For more thorough cleaning, use a photographic type detergent or isopropyl alcohol. Always apply the cleaning liquid to the delicate cloth (as described above) and never directly to the lens. Do not use glass cleaners as they may damage the lens coating.
Even if it is water-resistant, do not immerse the monocular in any type of liquid because this could create condensation inside.
PROTECT YOUR MONOCULAR FROM DROPPING AND BREAKING
The external lenses cannot be replaced so you need to protect them with the special lens covers included in the package. This is to prevent dust, sand, dirt and humidity from reaching inside. Our monocular has the lens cover attached to the body so you don’t lose them and can easily close when not in use.
The wrist strap ensures a firmer grip even on the move and during outdoor activities to avoid the risk of falls and breakage of the monocular.
When not in use, store the monocular in its protective case in a cool and dry place, away from direct sunlight. Avoid violent impacts with hard surfaces when placing the monocular.
