Description
To compensate for shifting of the infinity focus point that results from changes in temperature, there is a margin at the infinity (∞) position.
The infinity position at normal temperature is the point at which the vertical line of the distance scale mark is aligned with the distance indicator on the distance scale..

Infinity Compensation Mark
