They are Chinese made as are most of the binoculars on the market today. This includes companies such as Nikon, Bushnell, Tasco Swift etc. Some have Japanese made binoculars but they are the high end of the product line.Only Zeiss, Leica, Swarovski and Steiner of the larger makkers are European made.
Chinese binoculars are made to a price. The party requesting them gets what they pay for. Those with exceptional quality control are very good instruments. The only way to really tell is to look through a pair. If you like them buy them. The price they sell for don't expect brilliant performance. Nikon and Leupold have some inexpensive Chinese made units that are backed by good warranty

    I have 2 pairs of Rokinon binoculars. 1 is 8x42 and the other is 7x50 with a compass. Both are great quality with BAK-4 prisms. They focus well and collimation is good.

Serial number 5084291 - can you tell me what year they were manufactured

Hi Shena
Without knowing the brand of binoculars you're talking about, I would suggest getting in touch with the manufacturer directly and get the answer right form the source.
OK then, now that we have that information, using the website below, it would appear that these were manufactured in 1915.
Scroll down until you reach that year.

Hope this is helpful!

Hope this helps you out

I need a manual for a Rokinon ST-60910 telescope (Rokinon 910 x 60 Refractor Telescope). I purchased it from and it comes with no manual at all. It does come with the lamest CD made for a...

The manual WILL NOT show you how to find objects in the sky. Also which Rokinon do you own the number you gave is not enough information. See this web site:

More information needed and you will NOT find a specific assembly manual for that scope. However they all assemble in a similar fashion based on TYPE of telescope-- Refractor or Reflector.

Meade brand maintains a web site with all their manuals. Look under either the REFLECTOR or REFRACTOR header for one that is similar to your scope and download it for free.

Again the manuals DO NOT TELL YOU how to find objects in the sky. I would recommend that you buy these two books which will help you learn what you can see at night.

"Turn Left at Orion" and "Nightwatch". Both are available at any large bookstore or on

Read my TIPS on my profile page, and read these two web sites to learn about the TYPES of telescopes and MOUNTS for telescopes.

Samsung B 725II 7x25mm binoculars - left eye lens is damaged. Is it possible to get a replacement?

In short, no.

They only cost £32 brand new, and at that price there simply is no way that spares can be supplied and fitted for less than the cost of replacing them.

Your only hope is that they are still covered under the manufacturer's warranty or if you're in the UK you'll also have Sale of Goods Act protection, which states that goods must be of durable quality considering the price paid and the intended use. Although the Act gives you up to six years protection (five in Scotland) it will not in this instance offer you anything the Samsung one year warranty does not already provide as you simply can't expect a £32 pair of binoculars to last longer than a year. Many will last far longer, but anything over that first year is a bonus.

I hope that you have found my reply to be informative and that you are able to rate my answer.

The manual of jason 200x telescope

Bushnell purchased Jason in 1992, they can refer you to a manual for similar products that they currently manufacture.
Bushnell Corporation
9200 Cody
Overland Park, KS 66214-1734
Important Phone Numbers:
In Kansas City area - (913) 752-3400
Consumers - (800) 423-3537
Dealers - (800) 221-9035
Fax - (913) 752-3550
There is no reference to Jason scopes on their website, here's some of the history if your interested: Jake Levin founded Jason/Empire, Inc. in 1947. Jake and his son,
****, started the business by importing binoculars from France, as
well as cigarettes and pearls from the Orient. The product was sold
to jewelry stores and catalog showrooms. The company's name was
created by shortening the name of Jake and Son, to get Jason. Empire
was the name of a brand of products the company sold. Jason's
original location was on the 8th floor of a building at 12th and
Walnut in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The company later moved to
a facility in Kansas City on Warwick Boulevard. As the business
continued to grow, **** was responsible for the expansion and
evolution of the binocular and telescope business into a major
competitor in the U.S. Sports optics market.
Carson Companies, Inc. of Minneapolis acquired Jason/Empire, Inc. in
1977. In 1987, Jason introduced the Perma Focus binocular. This
patented binocular eliminated the need for focusing and revolutionized
the binocular industry. GlassOn, the first binocular exclusively for
eyeglass wearers, was introduced in 1991. The eyeglass wearer could
obtain a wide angle, full field of view when using the binoculars
while wearing eyeglasses. Other innovations included: the graphite
binocular, upscale consumer packaging, **** packaging, the Easy
Track telescope mount, and the telescope dual-position diagonal

In 1992, Bausch & Lomb a.k.a. Bushnell, purchased Jason from Carlson
Companies and moved the sports optics operation to the current
facility in Overland Park, Kansas. The name of the division was
changed from Bushnell to Bausch & Lomb Sports Optics Division.

Bausch & Lomb divested the Sports Optics Division in 1995 and Bushnell
became a wholly owned subsidiary of Worldwide Sports & Recreation, Inc
(WSR). WSR was a leading designer, manufacturer, and marketer of
brand name sporting goods and outdoor-recreational products.

Since then, Bushnell has changed hands again and the Jason name has
been discontinued. It is no longer used in new products produced by
Bushnell and many of the more popular models were simply rebranded as
Bushnell models.

Who made these marine binoculars?

Without seeing a picture it is difficult but there is hope. Most binoculars branded by companies other than the big three come from China. Namely the Kunming United Optics Corporation. Just type in United optics China into google. Have a look at the BC 6 in the compact binoculars section they may look like your ones. Not many 8x26 units are nitrogen filled so I'm guessing on this one. They have a support section and may be able to help.
