    5) Precisely centering and leveling Through observation of optical plummet, slightly loosen the central connecting screw and move the instrument evenly (Don‟t rotate the instrument), making the instrument precisely collimating to the station point. Then tighten the central connecting screw and level the instrument precisely again. Repeat this operation till the instrument collimate precisely to the measurement station point.
