    There was a thread between Brithunter and 2-dead-in-the-air in 2011 but the instructions weren't added or linked to the thread.

    Many thanks to 2-dead-in-the-air for digging out the user guide that Zeiss sent him in 2011. For anyone else's future enlightenment, I've attached the document below. This applies to Diasta, Diatal and Diavari scopes from (I think) the late 60s to around 1980.
