I'll assume its sweat and grime from handling over it's life time. You could purchase "Wax & Grease remover for ten bucks at an automotive after market store and remove it with a rag. We use it to remove adhesive residue on cars prior to paiting (removed stickers, pin striping, door moulds/strips all leave a adhesive residue.)
A less toxic product could be tee tree oil or eucalyptus oil
I recommend the wax n grease remover as long as the sales person agrees that it's not going to eat into your rubber or discolor it (which I highly doubt but wont hurt to ask) This product is a great thing to have around the house for those *sticky moments* u want to get rid of "1-2 quick wipes and its done"

hello sir good morning, i have this camera call (vivtar.10) and if i conect it to my computer it das not show on the computer and now find out that i dont have the drivers on my computer so i need your help to get the drivers plz. i hope my request will be granted in sooner time my e-mail adders is (firstname.lastname@example.org) thank you very much...
I'm taking it that the Meade website either gives you a specific Vista driver or says Vista will recognize the binocs.
(My example to let you know where I'm going: Sony said my video cam was compatible with Vista, but provided no drivers. Vista itself didn't even let me know something was plugged it. I searched and searched, and finally found a site that said they the model to work work with Vista through Firewire IEEE1394).
So just because a manufacturer says that product will work with Vista doesn't mean it will easily work. Firewire is like USB anyway but faster and better video quality.
Had same problem with sonic's driver sn9c202, os x would not recognize. Downloaded ecamm's demo program, iUSBCam, quit out of everything, signed back into iChat, & then webcam worked. Since demo program only thing that would make my cam work, had to buy it for just under 10 bucks. Then had to buy their iGlasses, and that helped with some video/darkness issues I was having...
Try it with rubbing alcohol first - just keep it away from the optics, and you may get lucky.
The only thing that ever seems to work with these is an abrasive cream cleaner (jif/cif or similar) - you just have to use lots of cream and be careful not to polish the optics - unfortunately the stickiness will come back quicker than before though.
I haven't tried myself, but i have heard that once you have carried out the cream cleaner routine, you can paint the unit - ask your hardware shop what sort of rubbery paints they have - ideally oil based and not acrylic. It wont last as long as the original finish or like quite as good, but it should stop the stickiness for a while at least.
Try and keep your binoculars out of the sun - most of the stickiness is either caused by that, or contact with a damaging chemical such as most insect repellents, or petroleum products.
Hope this helps :)
