I have a Simmons Model ATV 4515 rifle scope. other


Your scope has 5 adjustments:
1. Eye piece focus - used to focus on the reticle.
2. windage adjustment - should be on the R side of the scope, adjusts lateral impact point.
3. Vertical adjustment - the top turret. Adjusts vertical point of impact.
4. Power ring - adjusts the magnification of the scope.
5. AO ring - Parralax adjustment - used to focus the scope at specific distances. Most markings are not exact, you should set it at the range you are shooting and fine tune focus when you look through the scope.

Scope is out of focus


You focus on the reticle with the eye focus ring. You need a parallax adjustment ring to "focus" a scope. Your scope does not have this feature. Are you trying to use it at a very short distance?

Steward, this is Joe Lalumia-- I have seen your post on various forums. The 14 inch is different from the other smaller LX200 scopes.

Probably Dr. Clay, and or Andrew on the Yahoo Group LX200 forum will know the answer because they service these scopes.

Post a message there (register for free) and one of them will answer you about that very nice scope.

Clear Skies!

Why do i see a blury target when i look thu the scope with myglasses and it is clear without them


Because your glasses (prescription or reading) are configured to correct your "far" sighted vision deficiency. Even though the scope is located at a very close distance to your eye, the point your scope is focusing to/at is many? yards in the distance. If you're like many of us, you can see satisfactorily at a distance, but your arms aren't long enough to allow you to read a magazine?

Very blury above 10 x no mater how i ajust it and hard to veiw target nikon 8426 6- 24x50 bdc brand new


If you are trying to focus at a relatively close distance, you may be overpowering the scopes ability to focus at that distance. Most rifle scopes are set to parralax free at 100 yards.You can see this effect by putting the scope on its lowest power, focusing at 25-50 yards, and then increasing the power setting. You will see the image go out of focus as the power increases. This simply means that you must shoot at longer distances in order to use the scope to its full potential.

The other problem may be your parallax adjustment, but you may have already tried that solution.If not, make sure that the adjustment dial is set at the distance you are trying to shoot (minor adjustment from the indicated setting may be required to fine tune the image).

Loss of focus when izoom in


This typically means that you are have exceeded the scopes ability to focus at the distance that you are shooting. This scope is optimized for 50 yards and will function well at all magnification settings. Closer than this optimal distance the higher magnifications may present problems with blurring. Many scopes have a "parallax" adjustment that changes the optical focus to correct this problem. Several of my 22 mag scopes have this adjustment on the objective bell. You simply set the indicator line on the appropriate yardage indicator (making minor adjustments to fine tune focus). Hope this helps

Inoperative focus control


I'm assuming this is the Maksukov-Cassegrain telescope. Turning the focus knob CW should get you focus at infinity by moving the primary mirror away from the eyepiece. As you turn the knob it should move in and out relative to the real of the scope. If that's not happening the focus screw may have been turned CW too far and no longer be catching the threads in the rear plate of the scope.

You may be able to get it to rethread by holding the front of the scope toward the ceiling and turning the knob CCW. Attached is a photo of what the scope looks like under the rear housing. To prevent the focuer shaft from turning in too far the knob should be firmly seated agains the rear of the shaft. I think on this model this is a friction fit.

Are you looking set the eye relief or the focus ring?

For eye relief you need to loosen the scope in the rings, mount the rifle to your shoulder with your standard hold and cheek weld. At this point, slide the scope back and forth in the rings until you obtain a full field of view. Tighten one of the rings slightly, dismount and remount the rifle several times to ensure correct adjustment. Level scope and tighten rings a final time.

For focus adjustment (remember that you are using the eyepiece to focus on the cross hair, not your target!) loosen the lock ring and turn the eyepiece until the cross hair is focused. It is best if you check it several times by closing and opening your eye several times. The crosshair should be instantly in focus. If your eye must adjust, then you need to refocus until the focus is instant.

The two dials on the scope are for adjusting the bullet point of impact. They will typically move POI 1/4 inch at 100 yards.
