SOURCE: How to use the reticle in my Fujinon Mariner Binoculars?

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

SOURCE: 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.

How can I fix the sticky black surface of the outside of my binoculars?


Try cotton pads (makeup removal type) and Isopropyl alcohol. it works about 75% of the time. Cotton balls can leave a lot of fibers.

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.

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.

I have a pair of leica binoculars model 102351 which has vitical and hrizontal markings in the lens, I presume it has something to do with a range finder but I have no idea how it works. I would appreciate...


You are correct that the lines are for rangefinding. This is what is called a reticle. Without seeing how they are set up it is hard to determine the scale used. Most scales are in meters, some in yards, but they all work the same. Go to any of the following websites and download the instruction manual.
Go to Tasco and search for the Offshore OS 36 or 54 manual. OR go to Steiner Optic and download the manual for the Military 7x50 or Commander or Navigator models.
These instruction manuals have details and diagrams of how to read a rangefinder reticle.
Basically if you know the distance to an object you can estimate its height or size. OR if you know the size of an object you can estimate the distance to the object.

Rangefinder


Its easier to explain seeing a diagram. Go to Tascos website and download the instruction manual for the Offshore binoculars or Steiner Optic website and download the general binoculars instruction manual. It has all of Steiners models incuding those with a reticle. Most reticles are the same and there is no difference between meters and yards as your calculations are an approximate

The RX series of range finders are not of the optic quality that other Leupold optics are. I have used my RX IV in place of my binoculars, but it is not adequate for glassing for game full time. The rangefinding abilities left a lot to be desired for me. As long a the object was under 450 yards, it worked fine. Past that was somewhat difficult to get a range at times. Hope this helps.
