Success ... ( lucky ces :wink: ) ... Had another look this PM, .. still cant figure out how to get into the lens from the viewing (back) end, but took the front lens of again and this time very gingerly managed to remove the prism, and violins (as the French say :roll: ), there I was at the offending glass ... it was a small particle of fungus, along with some dust and I have managed to get it clean, not as well as I wanted to in as much as I was just tinkering and didn't really have all the proper cleaning elements with me being more intent on figuring out how to get to the inner glass as I was .. , suffice to say now I know I can get at (what was) the really bad part, I will sit down a little later with all the proper cleaning materials I need and do the job properly ... :D

Its a thought :) but no ... !! I have however taken some stills as I have gone along, basic perhaps but enough to act as a guide for anyone wanting to try for themselves.
In the absence of 'lab conditions' it pays to make sure the work area is clean and uncluttered, also to minimise dust etc, lint free cleaning cloths and ideally a can of 'dust off' .. OK, :roll: .. air in a tin .. !!

Having done the one (offending) side, it made sense to do the other and so I now have a clean pair of binocs, not as perfect perhaps as having them done at a professional repairers, but then it wasn't a repair as such, just a clean and something I was comfortable doing.

The pics tell the basic story, the more astute of you may notice a small anomaly still in the after picture, this however is down to a minor fault on the prism, which can just be seen in the picture of the prism.
