Question about Tasco Essentials 10x50 2023BRZ Wide Angle WA Zip Focus Binoculars

1 Answer

Internal cleaning My binoculars are on my boat most of the summer and they have developed a fog onternally on the left side. I'd like to disassemble them to clean the inner lenses where the fog is but have only been able to get it apart so far. I've been able to remove most of the outer case but am not sure how to remove the clips that hold the optics in place inside. Can you help? Thanks!

    They dry out every winter when I bring them into the house. But the fogging remains, I assume because the condensation collected some dirt somehow and got on the optics which now need to be removed and cleaned.

I don't know about disassembling binoculars. However have you tried drying them out, either in a "dry box" or by using silica crystals?

Why does the right tube on my binoculars not respond to the focus/adjustment knob?

I would not suggest any kind of repair or adjustment yourself - take to a reputable repair facility, and get an estimate, which could be quite high, as it is precision work.

Left lens fogs up

Binoculars are normally purged of air and filled with Nitrogen to prevent this. Each side is done individually. It sounds like a seal has leaked and it needs to be replaced and refilled.

I have a pair of Docter 7x42B and the left lens is foggy. do they have a gas in them? How do I get them fixed?

Binoculars are normally purged of all air and filled with nitrogen to prevent fogging and mould issues. If one side fogs internally it's a sign that a seal has leaked and needs to be replaced. The manufacture or any camera repair store should be able to replace the seal and refill the chamber with nitrogen.

Hi, I have fungus inside the ocular of my Zeiss Jenoptem 10x50 binoculars. How should I open the binoculars in order to clean the fungus? Thank you!

It is possible for someone to disassemble binoculars to clean etc. But if you are not experienced, there is a high chance it will be out of focus once you assemble it. The vision might even become blurry.
So I advise you to get it serviced by a professional.

I have a pair of kahles 8 x 42 binoculars that have condensation and fog internally. Can this be fixed? If so how do I go about it? Thanks. Mark.

A good service agent would help. If you are in the USA, Captains Nautical Supply in Seattle is one company that do this type of repair.

In just a little rain the outer lense fogs up bad enough that I cannot see through them at all.


This is normal enough.. Your binoculars don't have an anti-fog coating on them.
Bushnell do a spray on anti fog if you want to give it a try. Any good Bushnell stockist should be able to get it for you..
