10x30 is collimation

Hi all binogurus!

In the last week i feel that my fantastic 10x30 is are not ok collimated. Do you know if fine collimation is possible without servicing binoculars?

Thanks a lot

collimating binoculars is unfortunately not sth the user can do himself easily. The cases where people claimed they did on youtube, they might have reached acceptable collimation for their interpupillary distance.

Getting good collimation across the whole range of ipd settings is not so easy without specialized tools, you either need to buy for $$$ or build yourself and have to learn to use.
