Question about Zeiss Classic B/GA 524013 Binocular

2 Answers

I have a pair of Zeiss 10X40B Binoculars that I bought in 1993. They are still functioning well except now the middle that holds each side apart thus fitting your eyes, is now very loose and I must hold them at the right separation myself in order to look through the lenses. It seems like there should be a simple solution to this problem. Must I send them to a Zeiss place for repairs or is it something I can do myself?

    You seem to think that I need to "Collimate" my lenses and I'm not sure that's my problem. I read what you sent me and I never did figure out what "collimation" was.

    What ever controls the tightness when I'm "folding or separating the barrels" of my binoculars is loose so that the "barrels" fold and separate too easily requiring me to hold them separated at just the right distance for me to look through the lenses. Is this a better description of the problem? Sam

To tighten up the binoculars you need to remove the adjuster cap (arrow on picture below). Once that is removed you will see a screw that you can tighten to make them stiffer to separate.

I, personally, haven't had success trying to adjust/tighten binoculars, but I did run across a pretty good detailed description of what is necessary to "collimate" or adjust the lens for viewing:

I tried to find a procedure relavent to your make and model, but had no success, so I hope this general explanation and site will help.
Good luck, and hope this helps.

I have a carl zeiss jena 8x30 serial # 124690 what year is it


You likely have a set built between 1919 and 1930. If you go to this site (
The history of the telescope the binocular ) and scroll down (or search) to areas with Zeiss Binoculars, there are a number of files that have the information on runs. In my case, I looked at the Spreadsheet attached to the Zeiss Binocular Models entry, which , between lines 150 and 168, notes that binocs with the Lena logo were made from 1904 to 1945, and that serial numbers above 1 million began in 1919 and above 1,550,000 began in 1930, putting your pair in there more or less in the middle.

Cheers!

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.
