The telescope is then turned through 90° and the bubble once more brought to the centre of the tube by adjusting the third screw. It is necessary to repeat the operations once more to ensure that the bubble will remain central wherever the telescope is pointed. Levelling really means setting the vertical axis vertical. Finally, point the telescope at a piece of blank paper and focus the eyepiece so that the cross hairs are clearly seen. e. no parallax. : If the main bubble cannot be maintained in a central position wherever the telescope is pointed, the instrument may need adjustment.

If the horizontal distances between the staff stations are chained, a vertical section of the ground (a ‘level section’) can be plotted. The instrument positions I1, I2, etc. may be offset a little to one side of the line being levelled. In levelling from A the observations I1A, I2B, etc. are called ‘backsights’ and the observations to P, Q, R, S, etc. are called ‘intermediate sights’. I1B and I2C are called ‘foresights’. B, C, etc. are called ‘change points’. Notice that when the staff is moved the instrument remains stationary and vice versa.

It is necessary to repeat the operations once more to ensure that the bubble will remain central wherever the telescope is pointed. Levelling really means setting the vertical axis vertical.
