West Marine Moorea Binoculars

I have misplaced the instructions for my binoculars and would like to know how to use the rangefinder.They are the Moorea 7x50 with the internal compass and rangefinder. Or maybe can I download an instruction booklet from somewhere?

SOURCE: 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

SOURCE: Who made these marine binoculars?

Without seeing a picture it is difficult but there is hope. Most binoculars branded by companies other than the big three come from China. Namely the Kunming United Optics Corporation. Just type in United optics China into google. Have a look at the BC 6 in the compact binoculars section they may look like your ones. Not many 8x26 units are nitrogen filled so I'm guessing on this one. They have a support section and may be able to help.

Double image occured after the omega 40 X 70 binoculars were dropped


There are a series of lenses and prisms inside the binoculars. When the unit was dropped one of more of those elements have been dislodged and that is what is causing the double image. You can check with the retailer to see if there is a repair center in your area. The way these units are put together they are difficult to take apart, repair, and put back together. Depending on the cost of the unit you might be better off replacing them. Check with the retailer to see what they say.

I have a pair of leica binoculars model 102351 which has vitical and hrizontal markings in the lens, I presume it has something to do with a range finder but I have no idea how it works. I would appreciate...


You are correct that the lines are for rangefinding. This is what is called a reticle. Without seeing how they are set up it is hard to determine the scale used. Most scales are in meters, some in yards, but they all work the same. Go to any of the following websites and download the instruction manual.
Go to Tasco and search for the Offshore OS 36 or 54 manual. OR go to Steiner Optic and download the manual for the Military 7x50 or Commander or Navigator models.
These instruction manuals have details and diagrams of how to read a rangefinder reticle.
Basically if you know the distance to an object you can estimate its height or size. OR if you know the size of an object you can estimate the distance to the object.

Rangefinder


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
