SOURCE: 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.

Most compact binoculars have a central bridge. The objective (big lens) end of the binocular hinge usually has a ball bearing in it. The other end may either have a blanking cap or a hub where the neck strap attaches. Removing this cap or hub will reveal a grub screw which tightens another ball bearing against the bridge. Take the appropriate part off the limp side and look for the grub screw. Tightening it will decrease the "limpness". Be careful, as these are sometimes set in place with a locktite of some kind. Best to release pressure first before tightening.

How to hold binoculars properly


1. Remove the lens covers, if they are in place.
2. Set the diopter on the right barrel eyepiece. The function of this setting is to adjust between vision differences between your eyes if you are NOT wearing corrective lenses. Set to zero if you do have corrective lenses on (glasses or contacts). For proper diopter adjustment see this article: Binocular Selection Guide.
3. Most binoculars will hinge in the middle to allow for differences in the spacing between the eyes. Set the spacing to fit your eyes.
4. Adjust eye cups. Each eyepiece will have a means of maintaining the correct eye relief for the user. On quality binoculars the rim of the eyepiece will extend and retract as you twist the eyepiece rim. Move all the way in if you are wearing eyeglasses or adjust out if not wearing eyeglasses. You will know if they are set correctly when you look through the binoculars and check to be sure that the circular edge of the view should be sharp and not fuzzy. At this point we are not looking at any object in the view but rather the perimeter of the view. You may need to adjust the eye cups again to compensate. On lower cost binoculars the eyecup may only be a rubber lip that you either fold over (the "in" position) or out.
5 Raise binoculars to your eyes and use one finger to adjust the focus wheel on the center shaft between the two barrels, until the view is in sharp focus. If viewing for extended periods you may want to keep your elbows down near your side as this will increase comfort while viewing.
Final safety tip: Do not look at the sun through binoculars.

Many people enjoy observing nature with binoculars. Having them handy is key. Hunting, astronomy, marine use, and stadium sports are a few more activities where having a pair of binoculars can make a real impact to your experience.

One image is slightly above the other at all distances. After using the binoculars for even a couple of moments, my eyes are strained. The problem was present when the binoculars were purchased, however...


The oculars are not aligned properly causing double vision. Check on the binoculars to see if there is a place to adjust the alignment of either of the oculars. Look for any loose screws that may cause the two oculars to be out of alignment.
If this is not the case try adding some torque to the binoculars to see if the will adjust to where they will both point in the same direction. The eyes can fuse disparate images slightly but there is a very small range that they can handle. If the two images are separated by more than this small amount it will cause eye strain and double vision.

The diopter setting eyepiece has come out of the body of my Bushnell 10X42 ''Waterproof'' binoculars, model 13-2410. I see keyways inside, but cannot screw it back in more than about 1/4 turn, which is...


The entire diopter setting eyepiece was off.I separated the eye cup from the rest of the diopter setting eyepiece, and aligned the channel guides on the lens piece to slide it into place. Then holding it in place, taking care not to gum up the lens, I experimented with how to screw in the retainer ring so that its white dot registered correctly. Finally reattach the eye cup and focus. It's like new!

Double vision in minolta binoculars


Hi,

This is more common than you would think.. Here's how to set up a pair of binoculars to suit yourself.
Any good binocular will be able to do this and the reason is to allow you to adjust them for the difference in strenght between your two eyes. I wear glasses myself and sometimes contact lenses so it's good to be able to quickly adjust them.

1. turn the binoculars over so you are looking at the underside.
2. on the eyepieces can you see on one eye(usually the right eye) a little plus - minus marking. The eyepiece should be able to rotate a little to each side of this marking.
3. Set the rotating eyepiece to the middle setting.
4. Look through the binoculars as normal and bring the two sides together until you form the two circles that you see into one.
5. Pick an object app 10 meters away.
6 Presuming that the adjustable eyepiece is on the right hand side then close your right eye, look at the middle distance object you chose with your left eye and use the central focusing knob/wheel in the middle to bring your left eyepiece into focus.
7. Now, close your left eye and adjust the rotating right hand eyepiece while looking at the same object until your right eyepiece is in focus.
8. The binoculars should now be set for the differences in strenght of your eyes and you can use the middle focus control as normal.

Most binoculars have a soft rubber eyepiece that can be folded back for people who wear glasses but I, like most people I know who wear glasses, find it horribly uncomfortable.

This method allows you to set them for yourself and if someone else uses your binoculars you can quickly reset them for you.

Hope this helps...


- Oh yeah, sorry, forgot to mention.. This set up is so you can use them without wearing your glasses.. Much more comfortable!!
