Double image - one above the other

My TASCO Offshore 54 Binoculars are giving me a double image - one above the other and perhaps offset a bit. Is there a correction for this problem?

My center focus binocular gives a double image that is out of alignment when looking at objects. How can this be fixed?


They are out of collimation, probably because one of the prisms has shifted a bit. This is usually caused by them taking a knock. Fixing them, if it can be done at all, is a skilled job, and Tascos are replaceable for less than the cost of repair, unless you can get it done under warranty (they would probably just send you new ones).

They have been dropped and now have a double image


Chuck them away and replace them. Seriously. Your binoculars have suffered the most common fault which occurs to all makes and models: a bent or broken eyepiece yoke assembly.

If broken it cannot be fixed without replacing the whole yoke assembly, and on budget models like anything that Tasco sell it's cheaper to buy new and the spare part is probably unavailable anyway. If the yoke has bent then it's virtually impossible to unbend it without breaking it, and even if you do it's usually not accurate enough. So you try again and it breaks... On the rare occasions where you're lucky enough to get it right, the yoke has fatigue cracks and soon breaks regardless. Due to the loads involved and the tiny contact patch, gluing is a waste of time and usually just turns a broken yoke into a weak and bent yoke.

Given that you can now buy very good quality similar or superior binoculars from Bresser and others for around £10 to £15 new any kind of repair simply makes no sense. There's nothing wrong with cheap binoculars in general, but you have a simple choice; pay a lot for top quality models which then have full after sales and spares back up or pay very little and replace them more often. Even then, the yoke assembly for a high quality brand will pay for around six to eight complete new pairs of low cost binoculars. Your call...

If you Google for a repair agent you will find that "The Binocular & Telescope Shop" in Melbourne, may be able to help with a generic one that will do the trick.

I see double one over the other about 20 degrees


Up close to the eyepieces around the barrels are small screws that you can use to "collaminate" your binocs. The screws aren't meant to be accessed by the owner and most manufacturers cover them up with the material that surrounds the binocs. Of course the binocs in their current state are useless anyhow, so I wouldn't hesitate to peel up the material to look for the screws. If you do it carefully, you can reseat the material anyhow. Then once you locate the small screws, put the binocs on a stand or a table outside. Focus on something far away using one eye. Then using both eyes, you adjust the screw on the other eyepiece while looking through the binocs. Adjust until you get a single image. You can use loctite, or nail polish to "glue" the screw in the final position if it is really loose.

Image appears double and slighly off when viewing


I was having a double vision problem with my Barska 10-30X50 zoom, 195FT/100YDS binoculars. One image was always higher than the other. This was tolerable at low zoom, but was further aggravated the more I zoomed in. I found that I could grasp both barrels and twist them in opposite directions (one side up, the other side down) and force the two images to merge--but that was a strain and an unpleasant viewing experience. As an experiment, while looking through the binoculars, I grasped the far end of the right barrel and twisted it on its axis. Nothing happened at first, but after a certain amount of resistance it began to rotate independently of the body. Lo and behold, this shifted the barrel's axis, and the image for that eye moved vertically! I turned it until the two images merged, and now I'm thrilled to say that the problem is solved! I don't have a clue if this would work on any other brand or model, but it's worth a try!

BINOCULAR ALIGNMENT


Up close to the eyepieces under the material that covers the binocs. You have to peel away at the material to get to them, or look for the splice in the material which is very hard to see.
