    zeiss jena jenoptem collimation repair

    My trusty zeiss jena jenoptems have got to the point of no return - the double image I'm getting now is terrible. They do have a slight dent on the objective end of the body which I suspect might be the root cause. Is it something I can tackle at home - or is that being a bit hopeful? I know Glasgow binocular repairs will sort it, but this will probably be somewhere near the cost of another pair Anyone got any experience of doing this at home?

    Hi Mate, give paul burke optics a try, he has always been pretty good with me.

    Nice one mate - I'll give him a buzz and see what the damage is likely to be. I know glasgow repairs are reasonable in price too, but still likely to be 70 on a 70 pair of binos.... I was hoping to have a go at it myself, but it really doesn't seem like a job for an amateur looking at whats involved.

    Sorted it!!!! Although certainly not in the recommended fashion I am sure. I started dismantling them and was busy removing a little circlip when they went flying from my oafish hands onto a concrete floor. Picked them up and looked through to check for damage and they seem to be in perfect collimation. I am a fricking optical engineer!
