I have a WO IBIS 80 APO Spotting Scope. How do use it with other 1 1/4" eyepieces? The packaged zoom eyepiece seems to have a threaded attachment to the scope.


sounds like it was designed to use only the eyepiece that came with it. here is an idea...mount the scope on a tripod with no eyepiece in it...now take an 1 1/4" eyepice and place against the scope where you would put the eyepiece ..try to focus..if you cant, then slowly bring the eyepiece away from the scope till you see a sharp image..im sure a machine shop can make a sleeve to screw into your scope and hold 1 1/4" at that point.any questions i can answer call me larry@reichinstruments.com 5088331232

Yukon yd-100 lens removal for camera fitting seems like thred is broken


When you say lens, did you unscrew the eye piece or the actual lense? because the eyepiece is meant to fit your adaptor for 35mm cameras etc. but the actual front lense should be tightly sealed and thread locked to make your glass (scope) waterproof to some extent and to protect the alignment of the other lenses within your scope. If it is possible your local camera shop may have the ability to re-align and seal your scope, but if not do you have a warranty? and if not even that, if i were you i would align and accraglass your piece back together, it's a last ditch solution that should last for years.

I have a Kodak camera with a lens adapter that has 55 mm threads. How do I attach the Meade 64t-adapter to it?


Try a photo shop to see if you can get a T-adaptor to fit your camera (this is for SLR cameras without lens attached - the telescope becomes the lens)

But if you mean the 55mm filter threads, ie with the lens still on the camera, then you have the wrong thing. You need instead a contraption that holds the camera in position to take photos through the eyeepiece of the telescope (ie both telescope eyepiece and camera lens remain in place). With non-SLR cameras, that is the way to do it.

RA11 A Spotting scope


I did a little research for you. Check your manual but I think your "eye piece" has a 12.5mm thread into the body of the scope. The FSA-L1 has a 15.2mm thread which goes in the place of and replaces the eye piece for the models it fits. Check that manual too. If you have calipers you can verify it too by measuring the male thread of each. What you need if you can find it is a 12.5mm (male) to 15.2mm (female)adapter. Becareful it doesn't change the focal length. Check with photo shops or on-line. I'll do a quick search too and repost if I find one.
