I live in Florida and my binocs frequently get wet.I put them out in the direct sun for a couple of hours and it cooks the moisture out of them. I have had a pair of Pentax 12x50s for about 30 years.I've probably dried them out a dozen times or so.Good Luck

Misting when viewing through the lens. jenoptem 10x50


If the misting is on the inside there is little you can do except to purge them. Some binoculars are nitrogen filled to prevent moist air from getting inside and then condensing (misting) on the lens when exposed to cold air. If the seals have ruptured and moist air gets inside this may happen.

If it is on the outside try to give them a little distance between your eyes and the lens. You could try an anti-fog lens cleaner but if the lenses are coated this may affect the coating. Make sure you use something that is safe for the coatings. Typically coated lenses will have an apparent color to them when you look at them at an angle. They may look greenish, or bluish or even orangeish.

I dropped my Nikon Action Lookout III binoculars, ...


The same happened to my Mizar 10X25 I tried things like moving the front lenses but then I discovered that most probably the binoculars fell on one of the four corners, this caused the tubes' direction to be twisted. It could be that the left is pointing slightly down or the right is pointing slightly up, which is essentially the same, and which is what happened to mine. You can discover this miss-alignment by watching using both eyes and then close and open one of them the phantom image will appear and disappear. What you have to do is apply a force with your hands twisting the binoculars one tube up and the other down and hold where you can see clear, I just discovered this and it works, I think I should be able to re-align them again, but I haven't faund how to do so. If you find a different solution please let me know here: gregsoli@yahoo.com

Scratched lense on 8x50, any idea where i can get (im in ireland)


The good news is that as your binoculars are a premier brand, there is extensive after-sales care and spares support so almost any fault can be repaired.

Scratched lenses can only be remedied by replacing the damaged lens; due to surface coatings on the lenses (both optical and Swarovski's exclusive non-stick coating) it's not possible to polish out the damage. Even if you could, it would alter the shape of the lens and therefore adversely affect it's optical properties.

The bad news is that a scratched lens is not covered by the manufacturer's 30 year warranty so you'll have to pay, and it won't be cheap! But it's definitely worthwhile in view of the extremely high price of the product when new.

You should click on this link to find out how to get the repairs done (or use this link if you're in the USA). Basically, the repairs are usually done by the Austrian factory except if you're in the USA .

Before having the binoculars repaired you need to consider whether the damage is functional or merely cosmetic. If it's the latter, then there's no need to have them repaired unless further damage occurs. If the damage actually affects the viewed image then it may still be acceptable if it's only infrequently evident (e.g. due to bright objects in the dark, or only when the Sun is at a particular angle).

The focus between the two lenses is not synchronized; when I zero the eyepiece lenses and try to use the center wheel to focus, I can only get one clear image at a time.


Here's how:
Focus the left side first.
Close your left eye and now rotate the right hand eyepiece (dioptre ring) until the right hand side is clearly focused.
Open both eyes! Surprise! both sides should now be in focus simultaneously!!

Dropped unit. Knocked the prisims loose. All


It's quite easy to dismantle and inspect, look for tiny retainer screws around eyepiece and/or unscrew lens shrouds. Normally the prisms shouldn't come loose in average to good quality viewers, they'd be held in by some sort of retainer, eg- flexed, spring tempered metal, where you screw in one side and then have to flex (bend) the metal to screw in other side over the back of the prism. It sounds like yours may use an adhesive retainer, if so clean of old residue and use fresh silicone, or may have broken the clip and or screws. But it may just have popped out, in which case reattach it. Make sure the prisms are seated properly, 1 hardly visible flake of glue or dirt under the prism will offset vision noticeably. I would say you may be lucky and find an honest repairer for about $45.00 if prisms aren't damaged.

Specifically, what do I need to do to fix double vision in my 10-x25 Cabela's wide angle binos? I believe they were dropped.


If they are expensive binocs I would take them to a camera shop for a repair estimate. If they are somewhat inexpensive I would just replace them. They might be bent or the prisim damaged or an internal lens that has came loose.

Sorry, wish the news was better.

I have condensation/moisture in one of the two lenses of my Nikon Action 7x15x35 binoculars


Nikon Action binoculars are not meant to be 'waterproof'. They give the specification to the Chinese factories to construct the bincular to the retail price point. The higher the cost the more features. Water can damage the inside of a binocular as the contaminants in water can cause fungus to grow. Once that happens the glass lenses or prisms are damaged.

You can try to dry them near a warm air source such as blow heater on warm not hot over a period of time. This will help evaporate the moisture. It will not help if fungal bacteria has started to form.

Depending on the use that caused the influx of moisture you may have a warranty claim.

Out of focus


Assuming you are focussing correctly. When binoculars are out of collimation the most usual effect is double vision as the optical axis do not line up. The only thing you can do is to take them to a binocular repairer. The problem is the cost. Proper repair need the use of a device known as a collimator and it is a laborious task to do it properly. Your binoculars do not carry a high monetary value and a proper repair will cost more than a new binocular of similar specs. Porro prism binoculars mostly have the objective lenses set further apart than the eyepieces. This holds true except for reverse porro prisms which are the other way round. Roof prisms have both the front and rear lenses inline.
Make sure when you focus that the first eye you use to focus with is the one where the eyepiece does not have its own focus ring (dioptre). The dioptre adjustment is on either the left or the right depending on the brand. That eyepiece should be left alone until you have focused using the center ring. Then leave the center ring alone and focus the eyepiece that has the adjustment ring.

Moisture


You have to open each side ( nikon travelite covers just unclip ) to get to the 4 prisms. Once opened to clean make sure you do not break the glue that holds down the prisms ( move the prisms in their seats and your alignment is out ). Clean with window cleaner and isopropanol to finish.
