Binoculars, telescopes, rifle scopes have a inert gas inside to keep them from fogging up inside. I suggest you send it in for repair. Hope this helps you with this problem.

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.

Scratched lense on 8x50, any idea where i can get (im in ireland)


The good news is that as your binoculars are a premier brand, there is extensive after-sales care and spares support so almost any fault can be repaired.

Scratched lenses can only be remedied by replacing the damaged lens; due to surface coatings on the lenses (both optical and Swarovski's exclusive non-stick coating) it's not possible to polish out the damage. Even if you could, it would alter the shape of the lens and therefore adversely affect it's optical properties.

The bad news is that a scratched lens is not covered by the manufacturer's 30 year warranty so you'll have to pay, and it won't be cheap! But it's definitely worthwhile in view of the extremely high price of the product when new.

You should click on this link to find out how to get the repairs done (or use this link if you're in the USA). Basically, the repairs are usually done by the Austrian factory except if you're in the USA .

Before having the binoculars repaired you need to consider whether the damage is functional or merely cosmetic. If it's the latter, then there's no need to have them repaired unless further damage occurs. If the damage actually affects the viewed image then it may still be acceptable if it's only infrequently evident (e.g. due to bright objects in the dark, or only when the Sun is at a particular angle).

Broken eyepiece, 1940s vintage 7x50 individual focus binocular. Need hard rubber or bakelite replacements. eyepiece threads onto brass adapter ring (1 3/16in outside, 7/8in inside)


Here in Melbourne, Australia I make these for people who need them. I also have a reasonable amount of stock generic ones. The question is not so much the size of the ring, but the thread size, the depth of the eyecup (depends upon the magnification) which sets your eye at the correct distance behind the eyepiece (eye relief) and the size of the central hole to suit the size of the eye lens. There would be other small engineering companies that could make one for you out of delrin.

I bought these for my husband. In trying them


Difficult to answer specifically without knowing the model. But binoculars are designed to view objects in the distance. They all have a limit as to how close they will focus based on the magnification and design. Objective lenses that are far apart such as on a porro prism binocular will not focus very close. The nature of the design of having the objectives further apart than the eyepieces doesn't allow it. When trying to focus too close the image will appear blurred and double. That is the nature of the design. 9 feet or 3 metres is considered quite close to focus a binocular and is usually for a model designed to do this such as a roof prism where the objective lens and the eye lenses are inline. A specialty binocular such as the Pentax Papilo will close focus to 50 centimeters. It has been designed so that the objective (large lenses) lenses converge.

Take into account when focusing that binoculars are also designed to compensate for differences in each eye. One of the eyepieces either right or left will adjust seperately. For binoculars with a center focus ring. First focus using the center ring with one eye covered. The eye that should be covered is the one that doesn't have the adjusting eyepiece. When the image is clear close the eye you have just used and leave the center focus alone. Focusing on the same spot look through the eyepiece that adjusts and turn the eyepiece ring until the image is clear. Now all you have to do is focus using the center ring only as the binoculars are adjusted for each eye.

Some binoculars do not have a center focus and each eye will adjust seperately.
