In the DAY TIME? Take the scope out in the day time, put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser-- DO NOT use the 2x barlow. Practice focusing on a distant object by turning the focus know right and or left until you get a sharp image.
You will need top take it to someone you specializes in telescopes and can get you the right part and install it correctly, Telescopes are not everyday items you can get parts for anywear. Try a scientific store and ask around, they may know somewhere to take it.
Fog in the scope means moister inside. You can try and dry it out, take the rear lens off and using a hair drier heat the tube and the lens separate. Do not blow air inside it may damage the cross hairs. You can try and pressurize the tube so it will not happen again. You will need a large clear zip lock baggy the biggest you can find. Once your scope has been heated with the hair drier. Put the scope in the bag. and try to draw out all the air inside. You can use a Vacuum cleaner. if you get enough air out you can reinstall the adjustment lens on and the tube should stay in a vacuum for a season or two. You can also put vasiline on the threads to help seal the vacuum. You can also try to use gas, you can use gas from a paint ball gun cylinder to pressurize the scope. Put the scope in the bag pressurize the bag and reassemble the scope with the gas inside.
You probably can't fix it, and I don't know if it is worth fixing. There is a guy on ebay that fixes scopes, but like I said, this might not be worth fixing. you can buy a new one for what it will cost. So considering it a total loss, it won't hurt for you to try. You can take off the rear just by unscrewing it, and then the cross hair tube will come out, all different, but usually a cylinder screw driver, ( a tube with 2 notches on it, or a flat piece of steel the diameter of the inside tube. ) Take it out and see what happens next, going in from the front will release the seal, but it might already be broken. If you end up with a basket case, put it on ebay for parts. Hope this helps.
You have to adjust the back scope lens turn the back scope lens housing screw it out or in till it looks clear to you then turn locking ring tight to keep it in place, most scopes are never adjusted to the person because few know how to do it or that it can be done
Yes it will focus. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow. Go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.
PS- focal length refers to the distance between the front lens of the telescope and the eyepiece. Are you saying the focuser itself BROKE? If it is missing the scope is not worth fixing, as a new focuser will cost you about as much as what you paid for the scope.
Without seeing the rifle, my guess would be that either the rings were not tight enough or the lens came loose from the shot. It is rare depending on the quality of the scope. If the lens itself moved, it will not be waterproof or fog proof because the seal on the lens is not tight. If its under warranty then it should be replaced, if not then be care full not to get it too wet. If you had a suction cup, you could try to reposition it straight again.
The moon is big so use the 25mm. The Barlow will have a multiplication marking on it 2x 3x etc. A 2x Barlow lens will effectively double the power of the eyepiece you are using. Do not use the erecting eyepiece for anything other than land viewing. Erecting eyepieces generally reduce the amount of light reaching your eye and thus reduce brightness of the faint objects in the sky. So basically just place the 25 mm lens in the focuser and point the scope at the moon and you will be amazed at what you can see and how bright it is.
