This is a missable storyline achievement in the Prologue, and it is the first achievement you can get in the game.

During the Prologue, you will go though a camp of soldiers and speak to King Foltest. After two cutscenes, you will be given a spyglass and asked to mark Count Etcheverry. When you gain control of the spyglass, put the center crosshair over the person on the left of the tower across from you and press "A." This achievement was wrong in the PC version of the game, so ignore the PC Youtube videos which tell you to aim at the person on the right.

If you aimed correctly, Geralt will say, "One and a half degrees," and you will see the ballista shoot and destroy your enemies. On the right hand side you will be told your journal has been updated with Count Etcheverry's info. If this does not happen, reload your last auto-save, which is right before the cutscenes (which can now be skipped).

The achievement does not pop until after the sequence ends, another 5 second cutscene happens, and there is a quick loading screen. Please let me know if anything needs clarification and I will modify my solution as warranted.

NOTE: The Prologue sequence is different than the Training sequence. The Prologue begins after you choose the game's difficulty.

EDIT: Additional tip by umainbearman, confirmed by sashamorning: "This one played out a bit different for me. I couldn't see anyone to shoot at so paused it to watch the vid. When I resumed it simply had an a. b. c. choice on screen to make. I think it was 2.5 meters, 1.5 meters and 1 meter. I chose 1.5 meters which is what the video said and it worked. If you did it right you'll see a little cut scene with the guys getting taken out."
