Instructions for Lensatic compass: 
To take a fix: Using the compass hairline, sight on a prominent landmark or feature shown on a map. Read the magnetic bearing from the front of the compass dial 
For example, assume you are sighting on a lighthouse and the bearing to the lighthouse in 40, Now place the compass on the map so that lighthouse is on wire-line and Ns is parallel to the magnetic north line on the map. Your location is on the dotted line
