I can not focus the scope using a 1.25 diaganol or by pacing the eyepiece directly into the focus tube. cheers


Some eyepieces will NOT come to focus because the scope does not have enough back-focus, in the focuser. The only thing you can do is try another eyepiece or another eyepiece brand.

Was bird watching this morning, when one of the legs of my bogen tripod collapsed, resulting in my Leica APO-TELEVID 77 breaking in half(literally). I'm the original owner, does Leica's passport warranty...


If you registered the warranty, it may be covered. You'll need to give Leica a call. They will want the Ser. number of the scope when you call.
You can reach them at 1-800-222-0118.
Good luck.

I need the eyepiece for the vivitar refractor telescope ot accidently was broking when I shipped to the Bahamas


You don't say whether this is an astronomical telescope or a terrestrial one (spotting scope). However, I have a Vivitar scope which was sold as an astronomical scope, but is actually a spotting scope, although it uses astronomical style eyepieces, so...

I am not sure that it is the eyepiece you want, either. It is hard to break an eyepiece, but much easier to break the eyepiece mount or diagonal mirror fitting.

Most astronomical telescopes use a standard fitting eyepiece with a 1.25 inch outside diameter barrel. You can measure the mount where the eyepiece goes to make sure that yours is this size, then search on eBay or Amazon for "1.25 eyepiece" and you will find many available. It doesn't have to be made by Vivitar, any make will fit.

The other variable will be the focal length of the eyepiece, which is what determines it's power. The power of the scope will be the focal length of the main objective divided by the focal length of the eyepiece, so a 9mm eyepiece will give a higher magnification (and be dimmer and harder to focus and find objects) than a 20mm eyepiece. It is usual to have two or three different focal length eyepieces for viewing different objects.

How do i setup a jessops astronomical 800-80 ???


Why ndid you buy this toy telescope. Just because they run an ad and it's cheap does not mean it can actually be used for Astronomy.

This is a spotting scope a refractor style "toy" scope. You put the diagonal into the scope and then the eyepiece into the diagonal.

These scopes are terrible at any price.

Please read these two web sites before you buy another telescope:

Loss of clarity in spotting scope


depends on maker of scope, some models only come with i year, that should be the first warning, if you want to try something before going back where it was purchased ....take a q-tip put just a dab of alcohol on it, touch eyepiece lense with it, now turn around to dry side of q-tip and clean lense very lightly. this may do it where its 8 years old. you never mentioned the kind of scope.hope this helps...larry@reichinstruments.com

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
