Operating Instructions

Meade CaptureView
Integrated Binocular and Digital Camera

WARNING! Never use a Meade binocular to look at the Sun! Looking at or near the Sun will cause instant and irreversible damage to your eye. Eye damage is often painless, so there is no warning to the observer that damage has occurred until it is too late. Do not point the binocular at or near the Sun. Children should always have adult supervision while observing. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5.

CaptureView performs best under good lighting conditions. It also takes some practice to get used to high-magnification photography. We suggest that you take some time to practice capturing and downloading pictures.

Press the shutter/select button. The LCD blinks for 10 seconds.
Off screen. Pressing the shutter/select button shuts the camera off.
