I would recommend zeroing it at 50 yards. Google 50 yard zero.

The turrets are probably similar to most other RDS and magnified optics. Top turret handles up and down adjustment and the turret on the right side handles left and right adjustment. Counter clock-wise brings the POI up or right and clock-wise handles down and left.
