SETTINGS ON NV BINOCULARS
Here is a simple thing you can do to make life easier
at night. It is a simple thing but it does help a lot.
A typical binocular has on the front of each tube a
dial to set the clarity of the image at night, and
also at the back
However every time you pick up the set and use it the
dials can move thus you must keep checking each eye
piece to see if you can still see properly and that
the image isn’t blurred.
So, simple!! Do this before you hunt;
Get yourself a little luminous paint and apply to each
tube on both sides, or stick a tiny piece of
reflective tape with superglue on the tubes so you can
see how they match up often.
OR BETTER STILL
Set the tubes so you can see 100% clarity, on my
binoculars with the IR laser I can see clearly like
day at 120 m easily so I set it at about 80m and fine
tune the setting so I can count branches on trees at
80m, when it is set perfectly I take insulation tape
and wrap it around the lens and body of the binocular,
turn it around the lens 3 times and its done. Then the
dial is fixed and it cant move at all.
I check it again for a proper focus, and then I do the
rear setting. When all 4 are done I again check it all
and I am ready to call that night and send out the top
20 bunny blues into the night and enjoy my NV without
it going out of focus all the time……….…..
