In Sydney I can highly recommend

        DAW Optical Services P/l
        Suite 1, Level 1, 10a Henley Rd
        Homebush West NSW 2140
        Ph 02 9764 3476
        Manager is Wolfgang Reigert

They did a brilliant job on my old Carl Zeis Jena 8x30's after they
became waterlogged on a very wet outing.
