Question about Optics

1 Answer

Hello I recently bought a pair of second hand Zeiss binoculars, and I've noticed that they have what appears to be mould inside. I think that it's only in the bottom lenses, not inside the eyepiece. Is it possible to clean these myself? I unscrewed the cap on the end it came off OK, this is far as I got and decided I need to ask someone who knows what they're on about. They are marked DDR and have a seven figure serial number. Thanks

Zeiss is clearly one of the best optical instruments made. if you play with it you will only harm it. some old zeiss were sealed with black wax and have to be heated to get apart. wish you could repair it but it's impossible without traing in the repair field...g.l. larry@reichinstruments

I have a carl zeiss jena 8x30 serial # 124690 what year is it


You likely have a set built between 1919 and 1930. If you go to this site (
The history of the telescope the binocular ) and scroll down (or search) to areas with Zeiss Binoculars, there are a number of files that have the information on runs. In my case, I looked at the Spreadsheet attached to the Zeiss Binocular Models entry, which , between lines 150 and 168, notes that binocs with the Lena logo were made from 1904 to 1945, and that serial numbers above 1 million began in 1919 and above 1,550,000 began in 1930, putting your pair in there more or less in the middle.

Cheers!

Zeiss Deltrintem cleaning?


First look through the binoculars backwards keeping your face about a foot behind them. If you notice any fogginess as you look through then they will need to be taken to a service centre for repair. Your local camera shop may know of a repairman. I can advise for Australia, but not so much for the USA of Britain. In USA the one company I am aware of is Captain's Nautical Supplies in Seattle.
