Hi, Original focus knob fell off my atx 70 and now the 'focus rod' goes inside the telescope instead of moving front part. Is there any way to fix it?


The knob had a tiny set screw on the side of it-- that tightened down on the shaft.

See if you can tighten it back up. If it is missing take it to a well stocked hard ware store and see if you can find a replacement Allen style set-screw.

The stage slides down on its own and the view gets out of focus.


Just inside the coarse focus knob you will see a "chrome" ring with holes it it. That ring needs to be tightened just a bit. It will make the coarse focus knob stiffer so tighten only enough to stop the downward drift of the stage. A funny looking tool should have come with the scope. It is used to adjust this "tension" ring.

Stage slides down after focusing


There is a tension adjustment for this. It is located on the coarse focus knob which is on the same side as the switch. It looks like a chrome ring with about 3 holes in it. A strange looking tool should have come with the scope. It is designed to fit into these holes and allow you to adjust the tension on the coarse focus knob. You need to tighten it just a little bit. Not too much or you will have trouble operating the coarse focus knobs smoothly.

Swift microscope no 634008 having problem staying in focus when switching magnification


First, a scope of this grade will not be completely in focus as you move from one magnification to the next. But it should be close enough that you do not loose your point of interest.
Be sure you are not pressing down on the stage specimen platform as you change magnifications. It is very sensitive to pressure. Also, be sure that the coarse focus tension is tight enough that the platform is not drifting down imperceptibly as switch magnifications. Look through the scope and watch if the image goes out of focus while you are watching it. If so, you have what is called "stage drift". This is corrected by tightening the tension on the coarse focus knob.
The tension adjustment is on the coase focus shaft. It looks like a chrome ring with about 3 holes in it. There should have been a strange looking tool that came with your scope. It is used to adjust the tension. If your specimen is "drifting" out of focus, simply tighten the tension ring a little bit at a time until the specimen no longer goes out of focus. Do not get it so tight that it is not easy to operate the coarse focus knob.

There is some sand or dirt under the focus knob that makes a noise when the knob is turned. How do you take the knob off to clean . Thanks


There is a central aluminium decal on the focus knob. CAREFULLY prise it off using the tip of a sharp knife trying not to distort it (it's hard to panel beat a small bit aluminium!). Once off you should see a central screw or two screws that hold the focus wheel in place. Remove the screw(s) and the focus wheel noting the orientation of the focus wheel to the body. Use a dot of Liquid Paper to show registration. You can then clean around the focuser and the inside of the focus wheel before reassembly.

Focus?


The C8 optical tube has a very large focal range. It should be capable of focusing on objects from 15' to infinity. To focus on object at infinity you have to move the primary mirror foward. You do this by rotating the focus knob CCW. Rotate the knob CCW until it comes toa stop them slowly bring the mirror back by rotating the knob CW while viewing the object. It will snap to focus so don't move too fast yor you'll miss it.

Telescope knob


Still not enough information, but taking a stab at it, I'll assume you mean the pinion rod that goes between the focus knobs, and engages a gear rack on the focuser. There are locations where they can be purchased, and you would need to provide the OD and pitch (teeth per radian) to match.
Try: http://www.pinionrod.com/ as a source.
