How to use the reticle:
The vertical scale (reticle) visible through the left half of the binocular, above the compass display, allows you to calculate distance to an object if you know its height, or to calculate the height of an object if you know its distance from you.
Each mark on the vertical scale has a value of 5 MIL (1Mil is equivalent to an angel that can determined an object one meter in height at a distance of 1000 meters). Therefore, if a navigation chart gives the height of an object, by sighting on it and counting the number of MILS, you can determine how far away it is.
To Measuer distance when height is known:
Object Height(m)/Scale Reading x 1000m=Distance in Meters
To Measure height when distance is known:
Distance(m)xScale Reading/1000=Object height in meters

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.

I think you mean the two sides are not quite pointing in the same direction. This is called collimation, as in "the collimation is out". Alignment would be the everyday word. In binoculars, collimation faults are usually the result of a knock causing one of the prisms to shift slightly. It can be simple to put right, for a skilled person who knows what he is doing, if adjustments are available. Or the binoculars may need disassembly and an optical bench. I imagine that you would be able to replace these more cheaply than fix them, unless they are very high quality or collectable. I have made a mess of a few pair, and had a few successes, always with binocs that were uneconomic to have repaired professionally.

They were isued to the German army. My father bought a pair from a destitute soldier sitting on the wharf in Hamburg in 1945. I want to sell them now, but dont know what they are worth.
