I need a replacement screw on plastic eye piece for a set of asahi pentax 7x50 binoculars. Where can I purchase the part?


Either order from Pentax or take the screw from the other eyepiece and take it to a hardware store and match it up.

How to hold binoculars properly


1. Remove the lens covers, if they are in place.
2. Set the diopter on the right barrel eyepiece. The function of this setting is to adjust between vision differences between your eyes if you are NOT wearing corrective lenses. Set to zero if you do have corrective lenses on (glasses or contacts). For proper diopter adjustment see this article: Binocular Selection Guide.
3. Most binoculars will hinge in the middle to allow for differences in the spacing between the eyes. Set the spacing to fit your eyes.
4. Adjust eye cups. Each eyepiece will have a means of maintaining the correct eye relief for the user. On quality binoculars the rim of the eyepiece will extend and retract as you twist the eyepiece rim. Move all the way in if you are wearing eyeglasses or adjust out if not wearing eyeglasses. You will know if they are set correctly when you look through the binoculars and check to be sure that the circular edge of the view should be sharp and not fuzzy. At this point we are not looking at any object in the view but rather the perimeter of the view. You may need to adjust the eye cups again to compensate. On lower cost binoculars the eyecup may only be a rubber lip that you either fold over (the "in" position) or out.
5 Raise binoculars to your eyes and use one finger to adjust the focus wheel on the center shaft between the two barrels, until the view is in sharp focus. If viewing for extended periods you may want to keep your elbows down near your side as this will increase comfort while viewing.
Final safety tip: Do not look at the sun through binoculars.

Many people enjoy observing nature with binoculars. Having them handy is key. Hunting, astronomy, marine use, and stadium sports are a few more activities where having a pair of binoculars can make a real impact to your experience.

Broken eyepiece, 1940s vintage 7x50 individual focus binocular. Need hard rubber or bakelite replacements. eyepiece threads onto brass adapter ring (1 3/16in outside, 7/8in inside)


Here in Melbourne, Australia I make these for people who need them. I also have a reasonable amount of stock generic ones. The question is not so much the size of the ring, but the thread size, the depth of the eyecup (depends upon the magnification) which sets your eye at the correct distance behind the eyepiece (eye relief) and the size of the central hole to suit the size of the eye lens. There would be other small engineering companies that could make one for you out of delrin.

Seeing double in 12x50 powerview binoculars. I don't see double in other binoculars.


The optics have shifted. Either the front objective housing have been knocked sideways in the body thread, or the intermal prisms have moved. If they are new binoculars take them back to the place of purchase and ask if they can repair them or know of a repair agent.

I dropped my binoculas and now the eye relief will not twist


I believe the Nikon Monarch ATB 7430 8X42 is covered by

  • Nikon 25-year limited warranty, plus a No-Fault Repair or Replacement Policy

  • I would not mess with them as you might void the warranty. I would contact Nikon

    I lost one of the rubber eye reliefs from my Nikon compact binoculars. Where can I obtain a replacement? Dale


    I have had the same problem with a Nikon binocular. Contact Nikons service center in your country, they will order one in. If they don't have it in stock it takes about 6 to 8 weeks.

    If you have a very old model compact try asking in forums such as Cloudy Nights.
