How interesting! Why did they fall out? I suggest you start by doing a web search for your model of spotting scope (since you haven't included that info so I can't search for it) and look for a technical drawing that shows the lenses and their order. But, even that might not solve your problem because some of the lenses may be slightly different from one face to the other, which difference may not be obvious from drawings. Thus, if a lens is inserted "backward" it could affect the focus and magnification. Ditto with lens spacers and threaded rings. Then there is the matter of re-assembly being accomplished without fingerprints, dust, weather sealing, etc. I hope you are successful.

The 70-300mm lens won't focus closer than about 5 feet (1.5 meters). If you need to get closer, there are several alternatives. Here are some in descending order of cost (and picture quality).

A special "macro" or "micro" lens. Some lenses are designed to focus closer than others.

Extension tubes. These are tubes that fit between the lens and the camera body. By putting more distance between the camera and the lens, the focus point moves closer to the camera.

Close-up lenses. These are like filters in that they screw onto the front of the lens, but act like a magnifying glass.

Hello, did you remove the lens from its tubes? Also did you remove the lens set rings? If you did, O boy. These lens are set to give a center line focal point in the NV tube. The adjustment on the eye piece is for the focal point on you eye. While adjustment on the large 50mm lens is to adjust the center line focal point. If you removed and of lens rings and took them out. Then the lens need to send a lens Opitic company for reclibration to the correct focal point..

Now send me a diagram on what lens you have and I will see if I can reassembly in the correct manner. stewbison

My machine is only a few months old and has worked perfectly until now. I cannot get the machine to pull the solution back into dirty tank. I have tried the suggestion with the lid and that did not help....


If you are sure the lid is in place, another reason for lack of suction is that the duct on the front of the dirty water tank is missing. The duct may have been removed to install the hose, and was not put back in place. It is a square plastic piece, about the size of a slice of sandwich bread, which slides into the front of the tank. A far less common reason for no pick-up is that the seal that the tank sits on has fallen off the motor cover suction tube. You will see a round tube on the bottom of the dirty water tank. This sits on top of a large rubber seal on the motor cover when the tank is in place. Be sure the seal has not fallen down into the hood.

No one can answer this question-- there are multiple ways that lenses can go together. You should NEVER disassemble the entire lens-- only the outside surfaces ever need cleaning.

The battery is fully charged, when I turn the camera on the lense will come out lights on the camera come on for a second then everything goes off,lense goes back in.If I take the battery out for a minute...


Your problem may be due to weak/worn out batteries or corrosion on the battery contacts inside the camera which can prevent the full power of the batteries from flowing into the camera. Try this free fix before you do anything else: remove the batteries and wipe the camera contacts firmly with a dry cloth (heavy corrosion may require cleaning with a wire brush, steel wool, or sandpaper). Remove any residue that may have fallen into the battery compartment during cleaning, then wipe both ends of the batteries and place them back in the camera. This cleaning clears the problem about 90% of the time. If it doesn't work for you, your batteries may need to be replaced, or the camera may have a problem that requires professional repair.

If this response helped, please take a moment to post a rating for me. "Very Helpful" would be appreciated.

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.

The screen with the "swirls" on it is the fresnel lens and that is the one that goes in back then the lenticular lens goes next (it has the feel of a grid to it). Then the screen proetector goes on the very front. The fresnel lens only works installed one way. On Sony TV's look for the orange tag with the part number on it and put that to the lower right facing outword and usually 99% of the time this is how they go back in.
