This method is used if there are more than one angles to be measure from a certain station point. Consider the following fiqure, we will measure angles AOB and BOC using this method.

Procedure
• Setup the theodolite at station O, bisect the point A with a certain circle reading with face left.
• Rotate the instrument in clockwise direction and bisect B, note the circle reading.
• Then rotate and the telescope till it bisect the point C, note this circle reading also. All these reading will book into face left position.
• Transit the telescope and rotate the instrument through 180°, this time bisect the point C firstly and then rotate telescope in anti clockwise direction towards B and then ultimately towards A. Put these readings in face right position.
• You can do more than one sets of measurements for the accurate results, i have done one set and booking method is as follows,
