Maximum and Minimum Altitudes:
For taking bearings of landmarks or objects with low luminosity (the arrow on prism adjustment thumbwheels = DOWN). A distant object is sighted directly by the eye with the compass card being simultaneously viewed indirectly through the prism. Maximum altitude 34\u00b0 above the horizon; minimum altitude 10\u00b0 below the horizon.
For taking bearings of the sun or other celestial objects (the arrow on prism adjustment thumbwheels = UP). The compass card is viewed directly through the collimating lens with a distant object being simultaneously viewed indirectly through the reflecting prism. Maximum altitude 60\u00b0 above the horizon; minimum altitude 1.5\u00b0 below the horizon.
Operating Temperate: -10\u00b0C to +70\u00b0C.
