Question about Tasco Sonoma Binoculars

1 Answer

Rattle inside the set 8X20X50 set of binoculars Model # is #16-82050-1

It seems that refractor on the right barrel has come loose. IT moves around when you try to use the binoculars. The problem is in the smaller end of the right lense case and moves around whenever you try to focus the set.

Can this be fixed and where or can I fix it myself. Love the binoculars.

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

How to tighten binocular hinge


Simple solution: Pry or unscrew the cap covering the end of hinge shaft on the rear of the binocs (between the eyepieces). Use a screwdriver that fits snugly in the slot on the end of the shaft & tighten to desired tension. Place a dab of Goop-type cement on the inside of the cap if it was pried off & press it firmly back on the shaft . Helpful hint: Slide a small knife blade (an old dull one you don't use for cutting) under the cap and gently work your way around to pry it off. Note the position of the index numbers before you remove it so you can replace it in the same position.

It doesn't seem possible to tighten the telescope to the telescope mount. The tightening knob seems too loose. Also, there is no way for us to get our fingers into the narrow space to tighten it.


Sure wish you would have NOT bought that telescope. It is a 50mm refractor which is exactly the same size as a pair of 10x50mm binoculars.

The binoculars will have better optics than that telescope.

If it is already broken? Can you return it? You cannot buy a usable good telescope for less than about $200. Here is a good beginner telescope.

Eyecup part for Tasco binocular - 7x35


Eyepiece cushions for binoculars, telescopes, microscopes ... are all about the same size (Because our eyes are all about the same size!), and can be easily made from bicycle inner-tube material of the appropriate diameter. Measure the outside diameter of the eyepiece and ask a bike shop for the right tube inside diameter; a few mm smaller. Cut a section about twice the "depth" of the cushion you wish to have, roll the section over itself and stretch it around the eyepiece with the uncut (rolled) edge uppermost.

How to focus my Zeiss 10x40B TP binoculars


Your binoculars are known as the Zeiss Classic or what was once known as the Dialyt. They focus differently from the usual binoculars like those mentioned. The rear wheel is to focus both binocular barrels while using them. The front focus wheel is adjust the right eyepiece to suit your right eye. Binocular manufacturers take into account each eye is slightly different. To focus the Dialyt...First close your right eye and turn the rear wheel until the image is sharp in the left barrel. Leave the focus wheel alone. Now close left eye and adjust the front wheel until the image is sharp for your right eye. The image should now be clear and in focus for both eyes. It should not be needed to use the front wheel from now on. The rear wheel is what you will use to change the focus from near to far objects.

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!
