Anyone know where the prism adjustment screws are located on the Orion 10x50 Worldview binos? On most binos, I can usually find the screws under the rubber armor, but not on these. And they're out of collimation. Thanks for the help. :)

Erik,

Try PM'ing EdZ over on CN. He is the bino guru without doubt.

Thanks Kerry- I did ask Ed, but he didn't know. He thought they may not have an adjustment, which may indeed be the case. I may try taking them apart and resetting the prisms. They're cheap binos, but the optics on them were really good before they became misaligned.

Thanks again. :)

Erik,

That's a real bummer. I hope you can get them reset without too much problem. Good luck!
