The aforementioned elements are installed on a plate, using the special supports and held in position by a tie. Through the action of two pairs of opposing screws, longitudinal and transverse rotational movements can be impressed on the rectangular plate. With these movements we can center the bubble levelplaced on side to the telescope. The focus (distance adaptation) is obtained by manually varying the length of the telescope from the objective side; for adaptation to sight, you must use the eyepiece.
