Helios binoculars and telescopes are precision optical instruments and should be looked after to help maintain their condition and performance.

  • When not in use always store your product in its protective case, with lens covers attached to protect the instrument from dirt, dust and shocks
  • Always use the supplied binocular neck strap – this will help to prevent damage if the binoculars are dropped accidentally. Routinely check the strap for wear and tear and that it is securely attached.
  • Always pick up your product using a secure grip.
  • Never leave your product in direct sunlight or subject the instrument to extremes of temperature for long periods.
  • Do not transport or store your product in the glove compartment or unsecured in the boot of your car as the car’s movement can impart shocks to your instrument. Also extremes of temperature can build up in a car.
  • Products which are not designated as waterproof should not be used in wet weather conditions or be allowed to come into contact with any liquid.
  • Products designated as waterproof are suitable for use in wet weather conditions but should not be intentionally submerged in any liquid.
  • Touching lens surfaces with your fingers should be avoided.

Cleaning of your product

  • Do not allow dust and dirt to accumulate on the lenses. This should be carefully removed using an air-blower and a soft lens brush. Wiping a lens with particles of dirt on it can scratch and damage lens coatings and surfaces.
  • Stubborn smears can be removed by applying a small amount of a suitable lens cleaning fluid to a micro-fibre lens cloth and gently wiping the lens surface.
  • When the lens surfaces are free from dust and dirt, fog the lenses with your breath and gently wipe with a soft micro-fibre lens cloth.
