I lent my Celestron 9.25 SCT to a friend and he said he had collimation issues. He said he couldn't find the collimation screws on the secondary so he unseated the retainer ring and pulled the secondary...


Yes because the corrector plate must be replaced in the exact position it was removed. There were probably also small paper or cork "shims" around the glass plate that must also be replaced exactly. Your friend messed up your scope most likely.

YOU DO NOT need to remove the corrector plate to collimate an SCT. The collimation screws are on the center of the plate and accessible from in front of the scope.

I have a Nikon Travelite IV binocular, 8x23 6.3" #400841. I am getting double images now, what can be done? A friend had the same problem, said you replaced them. Please help, thank you. Dave...


They are out of collimation, probably because one of the prisms has shifted due to a knock.

FixYa did not replace your friend's binoculars- this site just gives advice and has no connection with manufacturers or retailers. You should contact the manufacturer or perhaps the place you bought them.

My nikon 10x50 action binoculars have developed the problem of the left and right lenses not viewing the same image. the left side view is much lower than the right. i don't know if the prism was knocked...


Common problem with binoculars after a knock. One of the prisms has shifted, putting them out of collimation (alignment). If they are very high quality or collectible they might be worth fixing. It is likely to be expensive. I have done a few pair myself, but only when it was uneconomic to have it done professionally (I have ruined a few too).

Double image, cannot adjust


Well, you can't, but a repair guy can. The body actually splits into two to access the collimation screws. Not a job for the faint hearted as the plastic has a tendency to crack if you don't prise them apart at the right spot.

Collimation screws on the Celestar C8


If you are going to replace them contact "Bob's Knobs" and order the replacement thumb screws. Makes collimation much easier, no Allen wrench needed.

Nikon travelite binoculars are misalligned. Can I fix them? Right side image is higher than left side.


They can be fixed but not at home. You need a collimator to properly align the optical paths. If under warranty send them back. If not get a quote first repairs are expensive and you may be better off with a new one.

I have a Nikon Travelite IV. The dogs ate the lens covers (where you see from), and the strap. Can they be replaced?


You will have to contact Nikon and they will more than likely replace them at no charge, especially if you registered them. Retail stores are an option but they will have to order them and there will be a charge.
Please rate this and let me know if this helps.
