The front lens is multi-coated on PURPOSE! You do not want a telescope with an uncoated main lens. This coating increases light throughput --

Where can I get a manual for B & L 4000


No manuals exist for this telescope. Your best bet would be to contact the B&L distributor at this web site:

Possibly they have one? Also look down the same web site on the chance that your telescope might be listed there. All of the manuals are posted at the above web site.

Going to be TOUGH to find a manual for that telescope. They stopped making them in the mid-1980s.

I lost my manual for my 60mm. zoom telescope. How do I get a new one .


Bausch & Lomb Sporting Optics were purchased by Bushnell in the 70's. Bushnell continued with the Discoverer line. Try searching Bushnell online for the product manual. They still have many PDF's of older models that carried the B&L brand on them. Thos branded Bushnell are identical to the B&L model of the same specifications and configuration.

My binoculars need some maintenance, and it looks like the eyepiece coating is wearing off. Where can I send them for repair, and do they come with a lifetime guarantee?


Bausch & Lomb binoculars did carry a Limited Life Time Warranty. I quote the first paragraph of the enclosed warranty card. The rest of the card just mentions the address to send them. The card is old and always good to check for the current address. "Your Bushnell or Bausch & Lomb binocular, riflescope, or telescope is unquestionably warranted to be free of defect in material and workmanship for the lifetime of the original owner." Coating wearing off is not considered a warranty repair as coatings can come off over time. Rubbing too hard often or not blowing off debris before cleaning can do this. Using cleaners not made for coated lenses also can. The Bausch & Lomb Discoverer was made by Bushnell. They have owned B & L's binoculars business since the mid seventies. Bushnell still make the discoverer line under the Bushnell brand name. Contact Bushnell in your country for service.

Bausch and Lomb rubber eye cups


Bausch & Lomb was purchased by Bushnell in the 70's. Your elites are Japanese made and considered quite a good binocular. Bushnell continued to make the same binoculars bearing the Elite name but replaced B&L with Bushnell. The current elites are different shaped. You could contact Bushnell or you could go to a store in your area that may stock the older Bushnell Elites and try and see if the eyecups fit.

The manual of jason 200x telescope


Bushnell purchased Jason in 1992, they can refer you to a manual for similar products that they currently manufacture.

Bushnell Corporation

There is no reference to Jason scopes on their website, here's some of the history if your interested: Jake Levin founded Jason/Empire, Inc. in 1947. Jake and his son,
****, started the business by importing binoculars from France, as
well as cigarettes and pearls from the Orient. The product was sold
to jewelry stores and catalog showrooms. The company's name was
created by shortening the name of Jake and Son, to get Jason. Empire
was the name of a brand of products the company sold. Jason's
original location was on the 8th floor of a building at 12th and
Walnut in downtown Kansas City, Missouri. The company later moved to
a facility in Kansas City on Warwick Boulevard. As the business
continued to grow, **** was responsible for the expansion and
evolution of the binocular and telescope business into a major
competitor in the U.S. Sports optics market.
Carson Companies, Inc. of Minneapolis acquired Jason/Empire, Inc. in
1977. In 1987, Jason introduced the Perma Focus binocular. This
patented binocular eliminated the need for focusing and revolutionized
the binocular industry. GlassOn, the first binocular exclusively for
eyeglass wearers, was introduced in 1991. The eyeglass wearer could
obtain a wide angle, full field of view when using the binoculars
while wearing eyeglasses. Other innovations included: the graphite
binocular, upscale consumer packaging, **** packaging, the Easy
Track telescope mount, and the telescope dual-position diagonal
eyepiece.

In 1992, Bausch & Lomb a.k.a. Bushnell, purchased Jason from Carlson
Companies and moved the sports optics operation to the current
facility in Overland Park, Kansas. The name of the division was
changed from Bushnell to Bausch & Lomb Sports Optics Division.

Bausch & Lomb divested the Sports Optics Division in 1995 and Bushnell
became a wholly owned subsidiary of Worldwide Sports & Recreation, Inc
(WSR). WSR was a leading designer, manufacturer, and marketer of
brand name sporting goods and outdoor-recreational products.

Since then, Bushnell has changed hands again and the Jason name has
been discontinued. It is no longer used in new products produced by
Bushnell and many of the more popular models were simply rebranded as
Bushnell models.
