Question about Zeiss CONQUEST BINOCULAR 8X30B MC BLACK
You have the classic signs of the most common binocular fault: a bent or broken eyepiece carrier yoke.
The cause is usually due to the binos being dropped or stored standing on the eyepieces. The only cure is a replacement yoke, but the repair is rarely cost-effective unless the binos are really expensive and top-quality models. Yours probably do fall into that range, so contact an optical repair specialist for an estimate.
Broken/bent yokes cannot be repaired: If bent, then it's near-impossible to unbend them accurately enough and in any case the process will always either break the yoke or will severely weaken it. Broken yokes cannot be glued together as the contact point is just too tiny for the loads it carries, and as it usually bends before breaking you'd simply end up with a bent yoke afterwards even if you could glue them.
