Internal cleaning My binoculars are on my boat most of the summer and they have developed a fog onternally on the left side. I'd like to disassemble them to clean the inner lenses where the fog is but have only been able to get it apart so far. I've been able to remove most of the outer case but am not sure how to remove the clips that hold the optics in place inside. Can you help?

Binoculars are normally purged of all air and filled with nitrogen to prevent fogging and mould issues. If one side fogs internally it's a sign that a seal has leaked and needs to be replaced. The manufacture or any camera repair store should be able to replace the seal and refill the chamber with nitrogen.
It is possible for someone to disassemble binoculars to clean etc. But if you are not experienced, there is a high chance it will be out of focus once you assemble it. The vision might even become blurry.
So I advise you to get it serviced by a professional.
This is normal enough.. Your binoculars don't have an anti-fog coating on them. Bushnell do a spray on anti fog if you want to give it a try. Any good Bushnell stockist should be able to get it for you..
