With regard to the Aimpoint T-1 Micro, am I correct in assuming that the side control dial-- turned clockwise moves the dot[ and subsequent bullet strike] to the right, likewise the dial turned counter clockwise moves the dot left ?

And the elevation control on top, turned clockwise moves the dot [ and bullet impact] up in elevation ?

2.2. OPERATING PROCEDURES
2.2.1 Zeroing
The Micro Sight is delivered with the red dot in a centered position.
Normally this means that only small adjustments are necessary,
providing that the weapon rail (Picatinny Rail) is properly aligned.
CAUTION: Do not continue to adjust windage and elevation
mechanisms if you encounter resistance.
The Elevation Adjustment Screw (5) is located on top of the sight,
while the Windage Adjustment Screw (5) is located on the right side.
a) Open (remove) Lens Covers (8).
b) Turn the Switch Knob (4) clockwise until the red dot has a
sufficient intensity to contrast against the target.
c) Remove the Adjustment Cap (1) for windage and elevation
adjustment, one at a time. The two knobs incorporated on top of
the Adjustment Cap (1) shall be used for adjusting the Screw (5).
Reverse the Adjustment Cap (1) and the knobs will fit into the two
recesses on the Adjustment Screw (5).
NOTE: Each click of the Adjustment Screw (5) corresponds to a 13
mm movement of the point of impact at 100 meters, (3 mm at
25 meters and 26 mm at 200 meters or 1/2” at 100 yds).
d) Insert the two knobs on top of the Adjustment Cap (1) in the two
holes on the Adjustment Screw (5) and turn as follows:
- To move the point of impact to the right, turn windage adjustment
screw counter clockwise
- To move the point of impact to the left, turn windage adjustment
screw clockwise
- To move the point of impact up, turn elevation adjustment screw
counter clockwise.
- To move the point of impact down, turn elevation adjustment
screw clockwise.
e) Confirm zeroing by firing at least three shots at a zeroing target.
Check points of impact on zeroing target to confirm accuracy and
repeat above procedure if required.
f) After initial firing, ensure that the sight is secure.
g) Turn Rotary Switch (4) to OFF position (counter clockwise).
h) Close front and rear Lens Covers.

Zoomie's post is excellent, but if you just look on the inside of the little caps, there you will find the turn directions. They aren't nearly as informative as Zoomie, but they will servie as an appropriate reminder in the field.
