 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR SCOPE:

  1. Ocular Lens – Look through this to view objects
  2. Eye Cup – Extend/Retract for use with or without glasses
  3. ZOOM Adjustment –  Rotate for greater magnification
  4. Focus Ring – Rotate to bring objects into focus
  5. Sun Shade – Extend/Retract as needed to shade objective lens from sunlight
  6. Objective Lens – Aim this at desired object to be viewed
  7. Tripod Screw – Use this to secure scope to tripod
  8. Axis Rotation Lever – Use this to swivel and pivot scope on tripod. Loosen to adjust. Tighten to stabilize
  9. Ocular & Objective Lens Caps – Use these to protect the lens when not in use
  10. Tripod – Foldable when not in use.

SETUP AND USE:

  1. Attach the ROXANT Blackbird to the tripod using the  tripod screw (G).  Spread the tripod legs (J) and set the tripod on a firm support.
  2. Remove both lens caps (I).
  3. To make approximate sighting , adjust the  axis rotation lever (H) allowing the Blackbird to rotate on its central axis in order to direct the scope to desired object.  When objective is achieved, tighten axis rotation lever (H) to stabilize the scope.
  4. Extend/retract the eye cup (B) around the ocular lens (A) as needed to ensure a full field of view – even if you wear eyeglasses.
  5. Extend/retract  the sun shade (E) if needed to block out stray light on the objective lens (F).
  6. Bring viewed object into focus by slowly rotating the focus ring (D) until you have a clear image.
  7. Use the ZOOM adjustment (C) to intensify magnification of viewed object.  [Begin with ZOOM (C) at lowest magnification.  Adjust focus ring (D)  to focus object clearly.  THEN rotate the ZOOM ring  (C) to desired magnification.  Readjust the object with focus ring (D), if necessary.

MAINTENANCE:

  • Store your ROXANT Blackbird  with lens caps on the unit.  Use the included case and store in a safe, dry place, —  to ensure that the scope is covered and protected from dust.
  • Avoid touching the lenses with fingers as the salt and oils contained on the skin could damage the lenses.
  • To clean the lenses, use the provided lens cloth or a soft lint-free cloth.  Wipe from the center outward.  To remove and remaining dirt or smudges, add one or two drops of isopropyl alcohol to the cloth.
  • To clean the body parts, use a soft damp cloth and mild soap if necessary.  Do not submerge or use excessive water/soap as you may damage the unit.
  • Avoid banging or dropping the scope.
  • Do not dismantle the scope.

    We love this spotting scope! We are delighted with the solid quality and attention to detail that went into building this tool that we will be using in concert with a laser range finder. We are going to be hunting pronghorn antelope in Wyoming. Long shots and accurate sighting and distance determination are essential to a successful hunt. The same will hold true during our mule deer and elk hunting trips.

    Thank you for putting so much attention to detail into this scope! It’s small compact size is of great benefit when traversing long distances over difficult terain.

    I love the size and weight of your scope my family all hunt and enjoy outdoors now I am spotting deer and geese on our Sunday night rides I bought a window mount. I am very happy with how easy it is to use and would recommend it to my friends

    Light weight, put in backpack, off to the range. Great for zero in my rifle and son in laws rifles. Seems I make new friends when I go to the range, people comments on the price I paid for it and always ask to view it for them self’s, you would think I won a million bucks by the aim being treated.

    This is a very nice little unit. It is small, but that’s what I wanted. Fits nicely in my gun bag. Purchased it for and will be using it mostly at the range. It feels well built and solid. Optics are nice and clear. Focus and zoom are smooth. I like the rubber housing. And the bag that comes with it, though not padded, will keep it from getting scratched up. I also prefer the metal tripod. Just feels more substantial. Very pleased with my purchase.

    This is my first spotter and I am very pleased, I will be using it to view wildlife out our back window. I have a nice pair of Canon binoculars and the field of vision is just as clear. I thought it might be heavier, but honestly, being new to this it’s better being lighter. I plan on introducing our growing number of grandchildren to this unit, I would have loved it when I was a kid. It was super easy to figure out without the instructions, the focus ring is nice and smooth and I really like the casing. I like that the tripod is metal, thinking, if it takes a tumble it might hold up better. I’ll be showing this to our son in law, who is a hunter; I’ll let him try it out and give me his two cents. Overall, I would definitely give this as a gift and imagine it to be another thing to share with my grandkids.

    I bought this scope primarily to use at the gun range. I was very impressed with the size the weight and the quality of the scope. The only problem that I see is that there is no provision for the tripod to be carried or attached to the case for the scope. That would be a tremendous Plus if you could carry the tripod along with the scope to the range. Other than that I am very happy with my purchase

    I was looking for a spotting scope to view nature out at a park I go to each day, and I am so happy I purchased this spotting scope. Both my wife and I really love this scope. So easy to use and the viewing results are excellent.

    I really like the clarity and ease of viewing ! This is my first scope and I think I made a great choice so far. I applaud Roxant in going the extra mile too serve a large segment of people who can’t afford the more expensive ones, yet are very cognizant of wanting a high quality product. Thank you.
