I was given a pair of 10X42 powerview FOV293FT the Prisms seem to have shifted can they be repaired and would this be cost efective Ian South Africa


If there has not been a major blow, it is in most cases straightforward to align that double image.
Begin by looking if any of the eyepieces or front tubes are jammed, if so they need to be straightened or replaced.
Another problem is if something rattles, and if you notice that it affects the double image. It could for example be the prism holders, or the front lens of the eyepieces. If you are lucky it is just the adjustment screws not being properly screwed in, see below, otherwise this problem needs to be taken care of firsthand.
For adjustment of the double image binos come with three more common options. There are in some cases concentric adjustment rings around the front lenses. More frequently on porro binos there are adjustment screws on the prism housing. You find them under the front and rear edges of the rubber fascia. Or with roof prism binos you often adjust the angle of the eyepieces with in that case adjustment screws on their periphery
To adjust you first pull the two tubes apart a little, look then at something with horizontal and vertical lines in the distance, for example a building. The image will look like bino views in a movie film, with two different circular fields of views kissing each other in the middle.
It is easy to see malalignment for horizontal lines as they go from left to right. These are also the most important to adjust. For vertical lines you need to scan left and right and see if the image jumps sideways. This direction is actually not totally necessary to get perfect, the eyes can slightly adjust for this, but at the price of fatigue.
Be careful and make small adjustments at a time. You should be done in a few minutes.

8x25 minolta compact bionoculars center focus knob will not turn. Have taken screw off center knob and removed 4 rubber strips on bionocular body and looks like allen? screw underneath. No obvious way...


They don't make these things easy to take apart, or fix. Here's your best shot- take it into a camera repair shop, and see what they say. Some tech might know what you have to do to get it apart, or if it can come apart without damage or special tools.
Unfortunately, only the repair techs know how, and there aren't too many (if any) of them, since they often just charge a set amount and send a refurbished or new pair to the customer.
Wish I had a more specific answer, but good luck to you, and with just a bit, you'll figure this out.

I was wondering about the calibrations in the center between the eye pieces' and how they are used


It's there to help you set the binoculars quickly to your own inter-pupillary distance. Just make a note of the number the pointer on the scale is at when you find a comfortable setting for your eyes and then when you next use them just set the pointer back to the same number. The scale is the angle of the yoke, and you'll often (but not always) find that the scale works on other makes and models as well to help you quickly set the binoculars up to your own preferences. The left eyepiece will also have a dioptre scale (not always accurate) so when you have sharp right eye focus, adjust the left eyepiece until you get sharp left eye focus as well.The scale on the eyepiece indicates how many dioptres (+/-) your left eye is different to your right eye. If you know the left eye setting and the yoke angle, you can quickly adjust most binos to your own comfort settings. Fixed focus binoculars are different in that they have dioptre adjustment on both eyepieces, so left eye settings from regular binos are not directly useful on fixed focus binos, but the yoke angle may still apply.

Dropped new Celestron Skymaster 15x70 binoculars. Nothing appears broken, but now have two images. Can I repair this. and how? Thanks. Dan


Don't "unscrew" the binoculars. there are no user servicable parts inside. the collimnation adj screws are beneath the rubber boot just under where your index fingers rest when looking through the bino's. use a jewelers screwdriver to tease the boot up and stick a small nut or something in. then put the binos on a stable surface and play with the screws a bit while watching the images. you can get them pretty close this way.
