Repair of Celestron binos found in river

Several years ago, I rescued a pair of Celestron Pro 10x50 binos from a river eddy. They didn't appear to be damaged, so I let them dry out. At this point, the image looks pretty clear, though there is a little "double vision" so they may need collimation. I'd like to get them checked out by someone who knows what they are doing, but Celestron doesn't answer my e-mails. Any suggestions?

Replacement battery (i.e. battery number) for my 10x50

Celestron advanced gt declination motor does not working


You did tighten the clutches?

If you did the DEC gears are either loose and not meshing or have broken.

Dr. Clay in Arkansas can repair this scope but it would cost several hundred dollars-- Celestron will probably sell you the parts to fix it. Here is their web site. You can also return the mount to them for repair.

We had a fire and my binos got smoked inside. I took apart the front and cleaned the prisms in front and lenses. How do I access the back prisms? How do i get the cover off the prisms at back of binos.


most prisms have coating on their air to glass surfaces. Chances are you have already degraded their original quality, even with the smoke gone. From past exp. you will be better of getting another bino...

I have double vision with binoculars. When I look at jupiter for example, I see 2 as if the optics are not aligned.


Your question is listed under "Zhumell Oberwerk 45 25x100 Astronomy binoculars". If these are what you have then they're an extremely high end expensive specialist item and will need professional realignment. I'm assuming that if you do own a pair of these then you're knowledgeable enough to have done all you can to adjust them correctly.

I suspect that you have a regular pair of 10x50 or similar binoculars, with a centre focus wheel and hinges. If this is the case then try to wiggle one of the eyepieces back and forth: if you can easily move it and the other eyepiece remains steady then you have a broken hinge. This is a very common fault especially if your binos have been dropped or if they've been stored in their case upside down (i.e.standing on the eyepieces).

A broken hinge is normally a write-off as there is rarely sufficient area to us epoxy glue on and the metal used is not usually suited to being brazed. Even when the hinge can be repaired it's normally permanently misaligned.

Either resign yourself to using one half of your binoculars or buy a new pair. In the UK LIDL regularly sell a pair of Meade 10x50 binos of excellent quality for just over £10 and that's only a little more than a bottle of epoxy resin glue costs. You may be interested to know that one of the world's most successful supernova spotters does so in his back garden in the UK using just half a pair of old 7x50 binos.

Dropped new Celestron Skymaster 15x70 binoculars. Nothing appears broken, but now have two images. Can I repair this. and how? Thanks. Dan


Don't "unscrew" the binoculars. there are no user servicable parts inside. the collimnation adj screws are beneath the rubber boot just under where your index fingers rest when looking through the bino's. use a jewelers screwdriver to tease the boot up and stick a small nut or something in. then put the binos on a stable surface and play with the screws a bit while watching the images. you can get them pretty close this way.

Hi the ir is not working on my bushnell 26-0400,is there any way you can help (repair ?)


I had the same model, same problem. Bushnell replaced mine under warranty, If they needed to send it for repair it had to go to Russia. I guess it was cheaper to give me a new one. If its not under warranty Bushnell will send it off for you but it will cost quite a bit. My new pair lasted about 2 years with a lot of usage. Gen 1 night vision tubes do not have a very long life span. You may be better served buying a new pair of night vision binos.
