I have a pair of Bushnell 20x50 Powerview getting double vision. Can focus each side by themsleves but not together.


Sorry to say but it sounds as if the binoculars have suffered a jolt.

All bincoculars are collimated at the factory so they will focus together at a "central point".

Some Binocular dealers will check the collimnation prior to shipping.. and make adjustments as needed..

If the internal prisms were shifted out of place or the frame was bent.. chances are it will be cheaper to replace then to repair... if not impossible to repair.

Inspect the frame.. to check for any debris or loose fasteners.. but I am afraid that these will need to be replaced.

Best of luck

The right hand lens came loose and fell off. Where can I buy a replacement?


You can't get a replacement part yourself, the only fix is to return the binoculars to Bushnell for repair.

If you're in the USA or Canada then your binoculars will be covered by Bushnell's Limited Lifetime Warranty; this applies only to the original purchaser and excludes misuse or any evidence of unauthorised repair attempts. If the warranty does not apply then you will still need to send the product back to Bushnell for a repair estimate.

If you are outside north America, then warranties and repair processes may be different and you'll need to contact the Bushnell office for your part of the world.

Note that as your binoculars are relatively cheap and can be purchased new for US $123.39 it may be better to sell yours on an auction site for spare parts and purchase a new pair. If you were not the original purchaser you then get the benefit of not only a brand new pair of binoculars, but the Limited Lifetime Warranty would also give you future protection.

I hope that my reply has been of assistance, if so please take a moment to rate my answer.

The binoculars need collimation. The two sides are supposed to be parallel, if they are not you see two heads on horses, two footballs, two baseball bats etc. Check the binoculars for any external signs of damage. Are the front housings sitting properly in the body, is one of them not straight? If there is no obvious signs then you will need to take them to someone who can rebuild them for you. Usually the place where you bought them should be able to help you with a repair centre.

If you do an image search for Nikon Mikron and the one you have looks the same then you have a Bushnell copy from the 1950's called the Palm Pocket. These appeared in the 1950's. The 6x18 was available from 1951. The 7x18 and can be found in the Bushnell 1958 catalogue. By the 1965 catalogue they had gone from the product line up. If you look around the body of the binoculars you may find a code beginning with JB or JL followed by a number. This number will give the name of the Japanese manufacturer who made them for Bushnell. If you get the number go here for the codes

The Palm Pocket came in 7x18 and 6x18 designs. A larger model the Broadfield was available with 25mm objectives

Hi - This called the diopter adjustment which compensates for small differences in focus between the left & right eyes.
