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.

Focusing problems


Hello Samaro,

This effect is produced when the tho sides of the binoculars are not focusing the same.
Since you sayit is present at long distance, it might be that one barrel is stuck and is not focusing the same as the otherone when you scroll the middle "focuser".

What you can do is open it up and try to clean it, also see if there is something, that is making one of the lenses not move forward as far as the other one.

Good luck,
Dahaka

Our grandson dropped our binoculars and now we have a double image.


This is a common problem with binoculars. One of the prisms has shifted and the two sides are therefore no longer in optical alignment (collimation). Unfortunately, fixing this requires a degree of expertise, which may cost more than you will want to spend. I have often taken old binoculars apart or found external adjustments that allowed me to realign them, but I have ruined a few pair this way. Not a good idea if they are valuable.

If you can find the paperwork and they are still in warranty, you might try to get Canon to repair them, but I suspect that they will say they have suffered an accident, not a manufacturing fault.

Seeing double in 12x50 powerview binoculars. I don't see double in other binoculars.


The optics have shifted. Either the front objective housing have been knocked sideways in the body thread, or the intermal prisms have moved. If they are new binoculars take them back to the place of purchase and ask if they can repair them or know of a repair agent.

Hi Ray:

Binoculars to see computer screen


Try the Pentax Papilio 6X 21mm binocular. It focuses down to 18 inches, is about $129 online and has a great compensation factor to allow you to see normal stereo at close focus by moving the objectives automatically as you focus. Other binoculars do not do this so that you end up having to look thru 1 or the other eyepiece but not both. I have 2 pair I like them so much.

Double image


The distance between the centers of the eyepieces of your binocular must be the same as the distance between your pupils. This distance is adjusted as follows: 1. Focus on a distant object. 2. Pivot the two halves of your binocular farther or closer apart until you can see a single unobstructed, circular field of view. Make sure to focus on a distant object when you do this because when you focus on a close object you always see two slightly overlapping circular fields. Your binocular may have a scale on the top, between the eyepieces, to help you remember this setting.
