Thank you

If you black spots then they are more than likely on the eyepiece field lense. dont know what kind of bino you have, if its cheap then probably not worth repair. this problem was usually found in the old zeiss. they used a black wax to seal them, and they are worth repair because they last forever...larry@reichinstruments.com

One eye is black when swiching binoculars,and only from one can see


check the method of operation of the unit
they can show two scenes when set apart but when they are brought closer together the lenses form only one view as if looking through one side of the unit
this is to rule out and inaccurate focus because of operators eyesight

How do i tighten the swing action on my stiener safari binoculars?


These binoculars have a 10 yr warranty, so you may contact steiner (http://www.steiner-binoculars.com/) for repair for a nominal charge, however there is an easy fix: You'll need a small (about 1/4 in) screw driver.
1. remove the objective lens protector. This is the small metal piece on the binocular side that is loose, opposite from the eyepiece(part you look through). It appears impossible to "pop" loose from the outside, but if you slip your finger inside(try not to smudge the lense), you'll feel a significant ridge. You may be able to pull / pop it off with your finger, or a small handle.
2. Tighten the screw that is now exposed. Do not overtighten, just a little tighter than what it takes to keep it from "falling" on its own weight.
3. Pop the lens protector back on the object lens.

The eyepiece lenses have something on the inside. Can they be removed for cleaning?


  1. Carefully clean your binoculars by firstly removing any dirt or dust from the main body and straps using a soft microfibre cloth. Avoid the lenses at this point using any form of cloth on the lenses before removing all dirt and dust particles first could destroy them.
  1. Gently remove all traces of grit, dirt or dust particles from the lenses using a soft lens brush or canned air specifically designed for the purpose.
  1. Waterproof binoculars can be rinsed gently under a tap but be sure to use on lightly running water, avoid high pressure water as it could damage your binoculars.
  1. Gently remove any remaining marks using lens cleaning tools such as a lens pen or lens cleaning fluid and lens tissue. Do not be tempted to use kitchen towel or anything else lying around that is slightly rough and may scratch the surface of the lens, only use a lens pen, lens tissue or a lens cloth. Gently wipe the lens using a circular motion working from the centre of the lens to the outer edge. NEVER apply lens cleaning fluid directly onto the glass (always apply to the cloth) and always ensure that the lens cleaning fluid you are using is recommended for the type of lens coatings that have been applied to your binoculars (Do not use general household glass cleaning products or products designed to clean computer screens or glasses. Such products could destroy the lens coatings of your binoculars if used).

Dirty spots on the insides of both large end glass of the binoculars .i noticed this in costa rica 2 years ago. these spots look cloudy and i can't see well when looking at birds.


It's lens fungus. It feeds off the lubricants and some claim it also feeds on the glass coatings.

Strictly speaking it means that the binos are write-offs, but if you can remove the lenses and carefully polish off the fungus you should be ok. There's some evidence that leaving the lenses out in sunlight for a few days kills any remaining fungus due to ultra-violet exposure (doesn't remove the dead stuff though). Some fungi will attack the lens coatings causing permanent damage (reduced image contrast, more lens flare) but the most common type does not.

Eyecup part for Tasco binocular - 7x35


Eyepiece cushions for binoculars, telescopes, microscopes ... are all about the same size (Because our eyes are all about the same size!), and can be easily made from bicycle inner-tube material of the appropriate diameter. Measure the outside diameter of the eyepiece and ask a bike shop for the right tube inside diameter; a few mm smaller. Cut a section about twice the "depth" of the cushion you wish to have, roll the section over itself and stretch it around the eyepiece with the uncut (rolled) edge uppermost.

I agree with you on that! I have a feeling they are either Nikon or Leupold sourced. The body is alot like green ring leupold ive seen but the lenses have a magenta multicoating on a lens surface which ive seen on nikon. I'm in the process of looking for the maker of them myself as I need an objective lens. I'm going to call the Cabela's Cust SVC number and see what they say. I've heard the new Euro styled binoculars are made by Meopta.
