You are thinking of a Star-diagonal.

These should come in different standard sizes.

Charger problem CL180


Call Black and Decker customer service, or better yet a DeWalt service center nearest to you.  Tell them you have this kit.  They are willing to give you 20% off a new DeWalt cordless kit.  Parts are non existing for this Delta Shopmaster set.  Black and Decker bought Delta just after this set was on the market.  I have searched and searched, all I can find is battery rebuilders.  I had the exact problem you had with the charger.  I tried to retrofit other manufacturers battery chargers, to this sets batteries, and still no dice.  I would call the nearest DeWalt/Black & Decker/Porter Cable/Delta service center and talk to them about a trade in on your units.  Something for this set is better than nothing I guess?  I think I am going to go this route with my set.

I also bought one & have no idea how the lenses should work...


Verify that the mirrors are aligned; look through the eyepiece holder (without an eyepiece) and you should see the main mirror with your eye looking back from the center. Ensure that there are no filters on the eyepiece, and use the lowest power one to begin (longest focal length).

When i view a star or small object through my reflecting telescope i can see the reflecting mirror in front of the image. this does not happen when viewing the moon.


You may need to realign the mirrors and the view piece. You can look at the mirror from the front and your eyeball should ne centered.

Vivitar telephoto lense 500mm


Yes and no. If it doesn't come with one, you'll need a T-adapter for Nikon in order to mount the lens (you can get one from Vivitar, as well as from other manufacturers). The lens is not an autofocus lens, so obviously you will have to focus manually. It's also a mirror lens so it has a fixed aperture. It's what Nikon classifies as a non-CPU lens, so you cannot use the D90's exposure meter. You will have to shoot in Manual mode.

Vivitar 75-300mm lens


The Vivitar brand has been bought and sold quite a few times in the past 10 years.

KEH Camera has quite a few used Vivitar lenses listed on their website. They are priced very low, from just $4 to $49, so it's highly unlikely that the lens is worth repairing.

Have to buy a new mirror or:

I was able to avoid buying a new mirror, but my mirror also became so foggy that it was unusable. This correction will not allow the Auto Dimm feature to work!!!!!!! But at least the mirror will function as a mirror. This took me about an 1 1/2 hours (glue needs to dry).

1) Take the mirror off the windshield
metal lever held mine in place
mirror then slides off
disconnect wires

2) Pull the mirror apart
it's glued together
Don't brake the plastic

3) Seperate front glass from the auto dim element
a clear front glass is sandwiched to the
element with a series (or piano style)
of metal clamps
the element is a reflective surface
the clear glass may brake, this is OK
it will not be reused, Be Careful Not
To Cut Yourself
Don't damage the reflective element, though

4) Clean the surface of the element
Be Careful Here, the element scratches
more easily than the glass surface would
have

5) Disconnect the 2 wire connector connected
to the element circuit
this is just a safety step to prevent the
element from trying to work and possibly
heating up

6) Put everything back together
glue the mirror back together
reconnect the mirror wiring if you
need to (my mirror had the compass
that needs power)
put it back on the windshield

I performed this repair about 6 months ago and have not had any problems. The element is the reflective surface that the mirror already used, so it reflects as it should. The auto dim feature, as stated before, does not work, but I didn't have to pay a couple hundred bucks for a new mirror or a used one that would eventually do the same thing. Their is a gap from the plastic edge of the mirror to the element the width of the clear glass that was removed. It is not noticeable to anyone but you.
