Hi, I have just bought an older Pentax 10x24. When I look backwards through one of the lenses I can see lots of grime and dust built up on what looks like a mirror or piece of glass in the middle of the unit. So, given that this was so cheap I thought I would risk it and dismantle the case to give the inside a clean up. The problem is that I cant even see where to start taking the unit apart to get inside? Can anyone help? Thanks.

dont try this ...optics aren't meant to be disassembled ..It's a job better left to the manufacturer, and may even be a warranty issue ( cross your fingers).. give Pentax a call at (800) 877-0155
