Hi,

I presume you have this fixed by now but if not I'd recommend getting it back to Bushnell for repair(is it still in warranty?)
The Permafocus binoculars need specific callibration and the risk of dust or moisture getting in while open is not worth the hassle..

What is the lens arrangment in the eyepiece of an 18-1560?


Did you DIS-assemble the eyepiece? If you did no one can tell you how to put it back together.There are so many different eyepieces. Normally the eyepieces just slip into the focuser.

Lens' in my new Voyager 78-9960 telescope fell out


The small squares are spacers between the lens elements. Most objectives have 2 parts, with one lens like() or (|. That is the one on the outside, with the outwardly curved side facing the object to view. The other lens goes behind it, making the stack look like: (object) --- ())| for the 2 lenses. Sorry, this page does not allow proper graphics, but I hope you get the idea.
Do not tighten the retaining ring too tight - just enough to hold in place. The lenses need a little space for thermal expansion.

Can't see anything through the lens?


Put the diagonal into the telescope-- then put the eyepiece that has the LARGEST number written on it. This is the lowest magnification. DO NOT USE THE BARLOW 2x multiplier !!

Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. The moon should be the first night time target you try to see.

Putting it back together


In 1965 I did the same thing with a Nikon single focal length lens my F Photomic. This lens was far more simple then a modern AF zoom lens. I had to bite the bullet and pay a camera repair man to fix the lens. He told me that had I not tried to fix the lens myself, the repair would have cost 1/4. The only answer to your question is to take it to a camera repair man and get a quote. I would check the quote against the price of your lens on E-bay and use that to determine if you want to fix your lens or replace it.

By the way, it is very rare for dirt between elements to be so problematic that it results in a degradation of picture quality.

Putting Lens Back on


How far apart are you? I mean it all goes back together in reverse order. If the lens is disassembled, you need to get the outer lens tube back on its tracks in the inner tube. That takes a little working, but it should be doable. You should be able to turn the small gear that is on the lens assembly and be able to extend the zoom lens, itll be tough, but if you cant, then the camera will probably not be able to do it either, look for something off track.
