Collimation very poor

Adorama
27 April 2012
  • Excerpt: When looking at the moon or other distant objects with these binoculars I am getting a double image. Both images are in focus so I would have to assume the collimation is out of adjustment rendering them worthless.

Poor collimation and quality control

DCM, Adorama
18 August 2011
  • Excerpt: I have other Celestron binoculars and telescopes that are great, but this pair was useless. The collimation was so poor that I couldn't look through them without getting a terrible headache.
  • Cons: Bad collimation, Gave me a headache, Poor Construction

  • Summary: Got a defective piece, lens was scratched, one small piece broke off inside the binocular after one wek of use. had to sell it off at a very low price as it was virtually unusable. All in all a pretty bad experience.

great for 18 months, then failed

Dr Chris, Amazon
10 May 2011
  • Summary: Worked well for about 18 months and then one day went out of collimation (produced double images) in a big way for no apparent reason. It's a mystery why - I didnt drop them or bang them about. Even adjusting the (hidden) prism adjust screws didn't bring them back to collimation. I have modded mine to make a 15x70 monocular - basically I cut it in half! Now it's just half the weight.

NICHT JUSTIERTES GERÄT BEKOMMEN

  • Summary: Das Gerät ist womöglich nicht schlecht, aber es kam leider nicht justiert an. SO habe ich mir den Service nicht vorgestellt! Ich bin sehr enttäuscht!

Bedarf Nachjustierung.

Amon, Amazon
6 June 2014
  • Summary: Für den Preis ein hervorragendes Fernglas, bis auf einen, wichtigen Punkt: Mein Exemplar (und laut Netzsuche viele, viele andere Exemplare) litt an Fehljustierung. Die Bilder waren vertikal zueinander versetzt, Kollimationsfehler nennt man das glaube ich. Musste jedenfalls erst recherchieren, wie der zu beheben ist, dann extra dafür einen 1 mm Schlitz-Schraubendreher besorgen.

  • Summary: Venían defectuosos. Estaban descolimados, por lo que se veía doble imagen. Tuve que devolverlos y ya es la segunda vez que me llegan así. He solicitado el cambio por otros y si vuelven mal, ya seria la tercera vez y solicitaré la devolución del dinero. Gracias.

Prismàticos descolimados

Albert, amazon.es
23 October 2011
  • Summary: Vaya decepción al marearme sólo de ponérmelos en los ojos. Estaban absolutamente descolimados (falta de paralelismo entre las lentes). Los devolví y me devolvieron el dinero.
