Unhappy Operating those binoculars

I'm stuck... Apparently I'm supposed to use these binoculars to find a mountain. I have it hooked up with the wires and the magnifying glass, it's the actual operation of the thing that confuses me. When I use it I just see everything rotating counter-clockwise at a steady pace... I can see something that looks an awful lot like the mountain, but I can't seem to slow the rotation down! When I give up and leave Sam says something to the effect of "I better stop the rotation when I think I've found it"... so I know what I should do, I just can't figure out how to control the rotation!

When I use it the mouse pointer becomes a crosshair, but clicking anywhere on the screen, with any mouse button doesn't seem to have any effect at all. How is it supposed to work?

Current Game: FM2007. Perpetually.
There should be a little lever just below the viewing thingy, pointing all the way to the Left. Just right click on that until it gets to the middle and the rotation stops.

Thank you! That's a stone off my chest, I was worried that I wouldnt' be able to finish the game... I can't believe this, I've spent an hour clicking everywhere, how could I miss it? Ah well, thanks again!

Yeah that was rather idiotic, the controls... but it was indeed in the manual.

I found a need for alot of things in the handbook, but that wasnt one of them. Do you realize how many times I get frustrate just walking around a screen? Luckily the game makes up for it.
