7x50 Marine binoclars, Fujinon w/compass. How do you swing the compass to get it to read more acutely? The compass rose, while viewing through the lense, is slightly off kilter (not centered in the view). What can be done to fix?

I've been thinking about this for awhile, and it seems to me you're experiencing a factory defect. I don't have one of these devices, or I'd know what "normal" was for compass, but if you can't easily have the display centered, something is out of kilter. Was it always like this, or did it just start occurring recenty? Your best venue would be to contact Fujinon support and see if they will replace or fix the problem. Here is their site:

Good luck, and hope this helps.

I need a new compass for tasco 322 BCW waterproof binoculars. Any ideas where I can find one?


Open the battery door, clean all inside with Alcohol & Q-tip. Check that the AG10 or 389 batteries are positive up. Now the compass dial pivots on a shaft. It seems to get caught. Take a strong magnet and rotate it above the compass lying horizontal and spin it until it spins freely. Take it away slowly. Does the compass settle down to accurate heading? If so place back in the top of the model 322BCW observing the glued in marks on the clear window area. Re-screw in, press brass button red LED should light.. If NOT recheck for corrosion. Regards, Don

How to calibrate a marine compass


You must have a known bearing. This can be a lot line, or a compass rose near a yacht club (usually in the water). Lot lines are handy if you can find one that has a N-S line, as it is based on the magnetic lines of declination for your area. Compass roses are fine, and based on the same magnetic lines, but tuning a compass on a moving boat isn't for everyone. They're really more for checking than setting a compass. Your best bet is to find something that goes true north, and then get on this line.
Best 'o luck --W/D--

Ranging reticle in Fujinon FMTRC-SX Binocular


Its easier to explain seeing a diagram. Go to Tascos website and download the instruction manual for the Offshore binoculars or Steiner Optic website and download the general binoculars instruction manual. It has all of Steiners models incuding those with a reticle. Most reticles are the same and there is no difference between meters and yards as your calculations are an approximate.

If your Fujinon is an ex military unit it has what is known as an M22 reticle. It is only slighlty different as it is graduated in mils but the calculations is the same. If it is the M22, google Binocular M22 manual. The military number for this is TM 9-1240-403-12 & P

How to use the reticle in my Fujinon Mariner Binoculars?


How to use the reticle:
The vertical scale (reticle) visible through the left half of the binocular, above the compass display, allows you to calculate distance to an object if you know its height, or to calculate the height of an object if you know its distance from you.
Each mark on the vertical scale has a value of 5 MIL (1Mil is equivalent to an angel that can determined an object one meter in height at a distance of 1000 meters). Therefore, if a navigation chart gives the height of an object, by sighting on it and counting the number of MILS, you can determine how far away it is.
To Measuer distance when height is known:
Object Height(m)/Scale Reading x 1000m=Distance in Meters
To Measure height when distance is known:
Distance(m)xScale Reading/1000=Object height in meters
