Question about West Marine Moorea Waterproof Binoculars

1 Answer

Who made these marine binoculars?

These nitrogen filled waterproof West Marine 8x26 binoculars are great. Nice and bright. The eye cups are shot on both pair and I can't find replacements because I don't know the manufacture.

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.

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.

3 marine batteries on a dual charger


You don't. It is called a "dual" battery charger for a reason, it charges two batteries. Guest makes very nice three battery chargers. Buy one of those and install it as per the instructions. You'll be much happier as well as safer.

The diopter setting eyepiece has come out of the body of my Bushnell 10X42 ''Waterproof'' binoculars, model 13-2410. I see keyways inside, but cannot screw it back in more than about 1/4 turn, which is...


The entire diopter setting eyepiece was off.I separated the eye cup from the rest of the diopter setting eyepiece, and aligned the channel guides on the lens piece to slide it into place. Then holding it in place, taking care not to gum up the lens, I experimented with how to screw in the retainer ring so that its white dot registered correctly. Finally reattach the eye cup and focus. It's like new!

Cleaned glass with glass cleaning cloth and coating coming off


The coatings cannot be replaced once damaged unless new lenses are fitted. Strictly speaking, they can, but it will cost far more than buying new lenses.

Without the coatings your binoculars will work just fine but under some lighting conditions you may notice a lack of image contrast and perhaps some lens flare. Under other lighting conditions a total lack of lens coatings can actually improve the image as more light can pass through the optics to your eyes. It's not a fault which usually merits replacing the binoculars.

Just use the cleaning cloth sparingly in future on any coated lenses: dust should just be blown off but small amounts make no practical difference and careful handling should prevent finger marks on the glass surfaces. Salt spray and errant finger marks should be removed using a lightly dampened lens cloth: de-ionised water with about 5% alcohol is ideal.

Eye rubber for 7X50 military marine


You can get the green eyecups for the military marine model from steinerpartsdirect.com I can also recommend changing the standard neck strap with a neoprene one for an older Steiner Nighthunter that is non cliclock. Makes for a much more confortable carry. Just make sure it is one that loops and isn't click lock.

I have a pair of glasses with a compass in the middle


These binoculars work on the Galilean principle in that they are just lenses. No prisms. These folding types were made as opera glasses. The addition of the compass is a gimmick added and such units were sold as cheap touring or travel binoculars. These types were popular in tourist locations. France at one point had a significant optical industry mainly producing opera and Galilean field glasses with the exception of Huet and Krauss who made prism binoculars.
An interesting but cheap collectable.

Bausch and Lomb rubber eye cups


Bausch & Lomb was purchased by Bushnell in the 70's. Your elites are Japanese made and considered quite a good binocular. Bushnell continued to make the same binoculars bearing the Elite name but replaced B&L with Bushnell. The current elites are different shaped. You could contact Bushnell or you could go to a store in your area that may stock the older Bushnell Elites and try and see if the eyecups fit.
