I have read all the postings and one helped. I think many of us are new to this and so are getting frustrated. One posting helped. Use the lens with the highest number you have. do not use the barlow it is too strong, Now go out side and point to a distant tree. It works using the focus screws more only a very little towards you and believe it or not you will see even the branches in the distant tree. I have posted more question now hopefully we will get nore answers. kauricot New Zealand

A telescope only shows about 1 degree OR LESS of sky--a TINY spot about the size of the tip of your finger held at arm's length!-- try pointing it at the moon and practice focusing it...... the moon is up just after dark right now.

In automatic mode and automatic focus - The camera should focus onto the subject given that there's enough contrast between your subject and the background. If it not focusing at all even in broad day light conditions - You lens is faulty.
Also - Do you or your friend have another lens to test if the camera is faulty?

The distance focus ring, is it supposed to turn all the way to the macro symbol when you are focusing on a subject that is very close?


If you're right "on top" of the subject - then, yes - it should indicate "macro". Macro focusing is for "very up close" photography and is exactly as you describe. You simply physically move the camera a little closer to or further from the subject to focus.

Not all lenses are capable of macro focusing. The vast majority of these non-macro lenses are required to be at least a couple (or more) feet away to focus. Macro lenses on the other hand can usually get just inches away - which is a great capability.

Enjoy your macro lens!

Can't focus using 5mm lens


TOO much magnification for that 3 inch telescope. The most you will get is about 120 power or so on perfect sky nights. Try a 10mm or 9 mm as your most powerful eyepiece.

50 times aperture is the maximum possible.

Zuiko 70-300mm lens focusing problem


Haha!!
Maybe its something you're not doing, LOL.
Look on the side of the lens. Most of the 70-300 macros have a slide switch. My Tamron, for instance, needs to be zoomed out to 300, then slide the switch to Macro and its ok. Look for the slide switch. You might also notice lines of a different color to denote Macro.
Some days it too tough to be smarter than the lens,
LOL.

How do I focus on the moon. Model 1400150. I have been gifted this telescope. Tried to focus on moon. Dont know how. Took big cap off end. Looked throughscope on top of large cylinder. Tried to focus...


first, use the lowest power eyepiece, that's the one with the high number on it with 'mm' after the number.

for a refractor telescope (uses lenses), you might have to add a diagnal lens (either 45 degree or 90 degree, whichever one you have) to focus on an object.
attach it in this order:

low power eyepiece-->diagnal lens-->main telescope

for a reflector telescope (uses mirrors, a telescope with a big tube with a mirror at the bottom and a focusing knob on one side of the tube). the open part of the tube points to your target.

hope this helps :D

I have a Canon 20D camera that I use with two lenses. The lens that I have most of my problems with is the 28-70 f2.8 red ring lens. When focusing It always seems to focus on what is behind the subject. No...


This is quite a well known problem called 'back focusing' there is little that can really be done about it, except if the camera is under warrnty you can send it in and they will do some laser alignment that fixes the problem, it would be worth a call to canon and getting a price quote on a service. Also it seems to be worse with some particuar lenses,

Focusing to infinity


Hey redbarnz,
If the lens won't focus to infinity then there is probably something physically wrong with the lens. With the dominance of digital equipment you can find fantastic deals on manual focus 35 mm lenses. I would look at Canon manual focus lenses rather than sticking with vivitar. I hope this helps!

Sincerely,
Allan

Canon D60 not focusing when hooked up to studio lights


1) Being connected to your studio lights is interfearing with the camera's electronics, disturbing its ability to focus. Does it focus if you're not actually connected to the studio strobes, but are trying to focus using just the modelling lights? 2) There may simply not be enough light for the camera to focus. Canon sells a red LED AF illuminator that sits in the hotshoe (can't remember the part number). That may help. Also, if your modelling lights are set to "tracking" or "proportional", try setting them to fixed full power. You've probably got the strobes set several stops lower than full power, so "tracking" modelling lights rob you of several stops of focusin light. Or try a faster lens.
