After taking a direction reading to a linear target or PDF, the width of the target may be measured by traversing from flank to flank across the target using the traversing hand wheel. The traversing h and wheel must be recentered before moving to another target, or else data obtained to the other target will not be accurate. To recenter, turn the traversing hand wheel back to the original starting point.

Recording Elevation Readings* After getting the direction reading, the elevation reading is obtained before moving to another target. To obtain this reading, the gun is laid at the center base of the target.

The elevation reading is obtained from the two scales. The first portion (MAJOR READING) is taken from the upper elevating screw scale plate. The second portion (MINOR READING) is taken from the mil scale on top of the elevating handwheel, using the dial pointer as the index. The two portions of the elevation reading are separated by a slash {/) when they are recorded (for example, 50/3).
