SOURCE: no pitcure

It sounds like your shutter has become stuck closed. Normally the shutter stays open while you compose the pictures and then closes when you hit the button to take the picture allowing the image sensor to record what it saw at that moment. If it stays closed you will not see any image at all, but the normal icons and text on your camera's display will still show. The same symptoms can also be caused by a failed image sensor, although this is less common. Freeing a stuck shutter requires disassembly of the camera and lens assembly. Check with your manufacturer for recalls and/or warranty support. If they cannot help you for free there are repair providers online who can work on your camera. David Millier Advance Camera Repair

SOURCE: veiw finder(eye piece ) out of focus pictures are fine

Use the diopter adjustment to refocus the viewfinder to your eye.

Point the camera at a sign or something with writing on and half press the shutter button to focus then move the little adjuster at the top right of the viewfinder until the image in the veiwfinder is in focus

SOURCE: d60, can i take a picture using the screen instead of the eyepiece?

That's because the Nikon D60 does not have Live View. Up until a couple of years ago, no DSLR's had live preview, due to the design of a DSLR over a point and shoot, as it has a pentamirror arrangement that effectivly deflects the light path to the viewfinder and only to the sensor when the internal mirror is raised. Early live preview models from Olympus had the world's first Live View system by flipping the mirror so that the picture preview could be seen on the rear monitor. Most manufacturers now incorporate Live View into most of their models but most Nikon consumer models do not as yet, apart from the newly relesed D90. Most photographers trading up from a compact to a DSLR are surprised when they cannot use the monitor in the same way. However for most aspects of DSLR photography Live View is not something that is used all the time, low down shots, macro perhaps being the most convenient use, but for general photography there is no substitute for framing through the viewfinder, that's what we've been used to doing for over half a century! Besides as pointed out previously a DSLR is often too heavy to hand hold at arms length especially with a long lens.

SOURCE: I get eyes that glow white in my pictures

bubba41, You didn't mention using the built-in pop-up flash that's when you get the "red-eye" and you can set the flash for redeye reduction when it's used.  If you are taking an indoor photo without the flash, if the redeye reduction is on turn it off that would eliminate the zombie or X-men eyes you are describing. randy320sgi

We just got our Bushnell Voyager 78-9945 Reflector Telescope. It comes with the poorest manual I have ever seen. How do you assemble the eye piece?, what is the little shiny metal triangle piece for? Does...


I think I already answered this question. Eyepieces are NOT assembled they are one piece like this picture:
http://www.amazon.com/Celestron-93342-17MM-Plossl-Eyepiece/dp/B000YKZKNI

They simply slip into the hole of the focuser -- straight in. The larger the number written on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification.

In the picture above there is a metal triangle holding the tripod legs apart-- it is called a "tripod spreader" or a tripod "tray"-- used for holding eyepieces and other small pieces of equipment while you are using the scope.

Hope that helps you.

Just purchased used. There is no instruction manual. I can only see a little dot of light when looking into the eyepiece. I don't know if all of the part are there....?


All of the Bushnell manuals are on this page.
http://www.opticsplanet.net/bushnell-warranty.html

Look down the page for your telescope. You must insert an eyepiece into the focuser. Do you have any eyepieces?

I have the Nexstar 8. It will not auto align or manual....


First do a RESET on the hand controller and make sure TIME, DATE, and SITE, are correct.

If this does not work then RE-load the firmware in the hand controller. If that fails contact Celestron customer service.

I WISH TO SET UP A TASCO 40-114675 TELESCOPE CAN YOU SUPPLY INSRUCTION MANUAL


You will not find a manual for that small REFLECTOR style telescope. However the picture above-- that you show in your question shows the telescope mounted BACKWARDS actually pointed toward the ground!

Apparently FIXYA also does not know how to set up a reflector style telescope. The eyepiece and focuser end is on the UP end of the telescope with the mirror on the bottom end of the telescope.

Here is a manual for a MEADE brand telescope probably very similar to your telescope.

You must set TIME, DATE, and SITE-- probably does not know your actual location. Read the manual and perform all of the setup procedures.

Some of these have a "starting position" again read the manual and make sure you are in the "home" position before you start the alignment. Read my TIP on my profile page about GOTO telescopes, and join the NEXSTAR forum on www.cloudynights.com

Misplaced lenses


You don't need to get Vivitar brand eyepieces to get replacement ones for your telescope. I'm not sure of the specifications for this particular telescope but in general they come in two barrel sizes for the eyepieces. The diameter of your eyepiece is probably 0.965" but could come in the more standard 1.25". You can measure the diameter and determine this quickly.

Once you know the diameter to shop for you can look for the focal length of the eyepiece you wish to purchase. They are rated such as 4mm, 10mm, 25mm, etc. The smaller numbers give you higher magnification. You can calculate the magnification by dividing the telescopes focal length by the eyepiece focal length. For example, let's say your telescope is has a focal length of 360mm and you have an eyepiece rated 10mm. Divide 360 by 10 and that gives you a magnification power of 36.

You can find eyepieces at many telescope dealers on the internet. Your selection will be far less if you use 0.965" eyepieces. You can purchase 0.965" to 1.25" adapters so that you can use the larger eyepieces with your telescope. However, on some telescopes the adapters will cause the new eyepiece to not come into focus.

You'll also find that eyepiece prices go all over the place. A good general purpose eyepiece is a type called the Plossl. The better eyepieces have more coatings too that allow more light to get through to your eye. You'll find these listed with terms like "fully multi-coated".

I hope this helps.

Good luck and clear skies!

There's a good possibilty that your mode switch is broken. Same thing happened to my Z6. I was able to source replacement switches, and can replace them.
