17 CHECK AND ADJUSTMENT
17.3.5Checking / Adjusting the Optical Plummet Telescope
Adjustment is required to make the line of sight of the optical plummet telescope coincide with the
vertical axis (otherwise the vertical axis will not be in the true vertical when the instrument is optically
plumbed).
zCheck
1) Coincide the center mark and the point. (See Chapter 2 “PREPARATION FOR MEASUREMENT”.)
2) Rotate the instrument 180° or 200gon around the vertical axis and check the center mark.
If the point is properly centered in the center mark, adjustment is not required. Otherwise, adjust in
the following manner.
zAdjustment
1) Take off the adjustment section cover of the optical plummet telescope eyepiece. This will expose
four capstan adjustment screws which should be adjusted with the accessory adjusting pin to shift
the center mark to the point. However, correct only one-half of the displacement in this manner.
2) Use the leveling screws and coincide the point and center mark.
3) Rotate the instrument 180° or 200gon around the vertical axis once more and check the center
mark. If it is coincided to the point, then further adjustment is not required. Otherwise, repeat the
adjustment.
Note: 1 First, loosen the capstan adjustment screw on the side to which the vertical cross-hair
line must be moved. Then tighten the adjustment screw on the opposite side by an equal
amount which will leave the tension of the adjustment screws unchanged.
Revolve in the counterclockwise direction to loosen and in the clockwise direction to
tighten, but revolve as little as possible.
2 Perform following adjustment after completing above adjustment . Section 17.3.7
“Adjustment of Vertical Angle 0 Datum”, Section 17.2 “Checking the Optical Axis”.
Note: First, loosen the capstan adjustment screw on the side to which the center mark must be
moved. Then tighten the adjustment screw on the opposite side by an equal amount which
will leave the tension of the adjustment screws unchanged.
Revolve in the counterclockwise direction to loosen and in the clockwise direction to tighten,
but revolve as little as possible.
