To read a theodolite scale, start by setting up the instrument on a stable platform. Next, level the instrument using the built-in bubble level. After that, look through the telescope to identify a distant object, then adjust the instrument’s vertical and horizontal angles so the object is centered in the crosshairs. Finally, note down the horizontal and vertical values on the scales located on the theodolite.
