How to perform a NUC
NUC’ing helps to improve the image quality when the image is degraded by various environmental factors. There are multiple NUC tables that span the full operating temperature range, and the monocular automatically selects the optimum table based on its temperature.

Example:
Change of temperature, continuous viewing of a particular warm object, and movement from one environment to another all may cause image degradation.

To start NUC’ing, press button How to perform a NUC. In this case, the icon How to perform a NUC will be shown in the lower right corner. To enable automatic execution of NUC’ing (auto-NUC mode), press and hold the button How to perform a NUC . In this case, the icon How to perform a NUC will be shown in the lower right corner. In the same way (by holding the button How to perform a NUC ), you can turn off this mode.
