Bino collimation

Recommended Posts

Looks like I may have knocked my binos slightly as the collimation is now off. 
 

Where is the best place in the UK to get Lunt 16x70 binos repaired ? Any experiences ? 

Thanks Ken

Gary has repaired and collimated for Leica AND Zeiss. I think ... as soon as he gets some REAL credentials ... Ken should give him a shot!

am guessing that's Gary at East Coast as per my link, Bill? Heard good things about them and of course you've pointed me there in the past too 🙂

Yea thanks, looking at the website though it appears they have temporarily stopped accepting repairs due to Covid. 😬

I’ve not had any response yet from any of the UK companies I’ve emailed. I think everyone is exceptionally busy with Covid restrictions etc. Some aren’t even accepting repairs. 
 

I’ve just emailed FLO to see who they would recommend.

I can relate to your frustration as I've emailed a bunch of companies in the hope that they can recover my Nikon tropicals with fresh leatherette as the rubber armour started to deteriate,some have stopped covering binoculars and one has told me that it was not  economically viable to send in to be done,I've started making my own template now after finding pictures on line to show where the seams are!

Good luck and stay safe.

 

Ash.
