My binoculars are Zeiss 8 x 30 Jenoptem purchased new in 1972 £24.99 retail. Still in excellent condition until I dropped them on the carpet a few days ago. I now cannot focus them properly resulting in double vision. I need to know where to get them repaired. I live near Leeds, West Yorkshire.

In the UK your best bet would be to send them to Kay Optical. They have an enviable reputation in repairing binoculars. Another place in the UK is Cley Spy in Norfolk who also have much experience with older optics. Sorry neither is too close to you.

I bought a skyquest xt10i telescope and am trying


A star is always just a point of light no matter what magnification you use! If you are seeing a "disk" when you focus on a star you are NOT focused! Make it a tiny dot.Why not try focusing on the moon or Mars and Saturn. You will always need to re=focus slightly when you move to another sky object.

I've got a pair of Zeiss Victory 10x42 t*fl binoculars that need repair. I called the phone number listed in the Zeiss website and got an address where I could send the binoculars but was not able to talk to a representative -- the phone message is in a continuous loop, hitting "0" to get an operative results in a repeat of the same message giving the address. I need some answers, i.e. how long the repair might take, base charge a repair estimate, etc. How do I get to talk to someone at the repair center? I'm impressed with the bins but my experience with the repair process has left me frustrated.


Why not consult the store where you bought them ?

I was given a Tasco Luminova a couple of months ago that had no eye piece in it, i have since purchased one for it thinking that this was the only thing that i needed for it to work correctly. Unfortu


Tasco telescopes are not worth owning. They will only frustrate you and you will dislike astronomy. Buy a Meade, Celestron or Orion Even the Celestron 70 travel scope, although it has a poor tripod, will give you a great view of the moon and ok view of Jupiter and Saturn They are under $80

Binoculers do not appear to be focussing properly.


Binox have a prism in each barrel to invert the image. When dropped or banged around the prisms may move in their mounts creating the problem you present. I have opened binox and reset the prism effecting a correction, but IF you unit is nitrogen filled you will be losing that anti-fogging benefit. If you choose to open your pair, check for movement in each prism, neither should be loose. Once you find the original proper placement, a drop of crazy glue does wonders - just a drop on one edge.

Does this telescope need accesories for proper function


Do you have eyepieces? At least two? The bigger the number on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification-- something around say-- 20mm and 10mm ?? Usually their is a small "finder" scope attached to the top of the main tube to use to help you center and find distant objects. ??and of course a tripod to hold the telescope.Look through this web site--http://www.agenaastro.com/

I have an old brass 4 tube telescope that won't focus. If I turn out each threaded joint about 1/16" I can get it in focus but I know this is not the proper use. Do I trim each of these to allow the tubes to extend that far or is there another way?


Not worth messing with. These were sold for "display" only and are not actually meant to be used.Do whatever you like to get it to focus.
