I just got a my zeiss conquest 3x9x40 and im trying to figure out how to use the reseting turrets, the manual states that I must set the 0 to the index mark on the tube, my scope doesn't have an index mark or numbers, it just has black & white lines like a barcode, on half of the turret.
 
I can pull the dial up and rotating it without the clicks but the instructions are useless because I don't have digits or an index mark to follow along with.
 
 
does my zeiss even have resetting turrets?

One of the white lines is fatter.  That would be the INDEXING or ZERO line.  It's in line with the two holes.  Try to check -- it is there.

Yeah they could have done that a little better.  It's nice you can rezero but you don't have very descriptive reference marks.  I don't like how they used the same tops for the windage and elevation.  I'd have to check but I believe they both say UP/RIGHT.  I'm sure this confuses the casual shooter.  I've seen several shooters that don't know which turret adjusts windage or elevation until they read the turret.

OOooo ok now i see it, its right in the middle of that barcode....Whacko
 
 
but what am I supposed to line that up with?  I see a tiny mark right on top of the threading, its off center but its in the same place on the windage and elevation dial, its barely visible but is that the mark I have to line the barcode up with?
 
 
Thanks for the responces
 
 
p.s,  I paid $500 and zeiss couldn't even include a simple cleaning wipe in the box, I had to take a trip to the mall just to get something to whipe off my finger printSleep

Fingerprints!!  I avoid touching the lens' like they're kryptonite and I'm Superman.  THe Zeiss packaging or lack of is nothing spectacular.  I think my Cheerios box is thicker and offers more protection.  Still great scopes though.
