Question about Nikon Travelite IV

Open Question

Lens out of alignment

The lens seems to be out of alignment. I can focus the lens' with each eye but viewing together results in the one lens "dropping" slightly. Especially noticable when looking at a straight line object.

They retails for about $90 online - is it worth sending in for repair or just buying a new pair ?

Thanks ... Meschi

Hello Scott

While I am mostly a camera expert , I have seen the problem that you are describing. Inside the camera there is a little reflector which is used to invert the picture and focus it to the viewing eyes.

These reflectors are stuck to the camera casing using epoxy and the problem is that with time the epoxy becomes brittle and cracks. When it is cracked , the lens will move out of it's fixed posistion but the epoxy does not always break loose fully which is why you do not hear any rattle.

You could attempt to open it up and glue the lens back into posistion using some new epoxy , but you could possibly have some problems with the screws of they are not standard.

In this case ask a jeweler to repiar the binocular for you as this should not cost much to repiar...no more than $15.

Kind Regards
Andrea

Return them for a refund or exchange. Either the prisms need adjusting or the eyepiece carrier yoke has got bent in transit and neither are user-fixable items.

Nikon are usually excellent, but like all such products only a small sample are quality tested during production, so it's inevitable that a few rogue faulty examples will eventually reach customers.

Is the Raynox DCR 250 compatible with 75-300mm Canon lens?


Have a look at this page for discussion about this adapter. Depending on the lens you're using it with - the DOF can be extremely shallow and make focusing difficult. If you're in Auto Focus mode - try switching to manual and see if you can get better results.

Good luck!

Holy Smokes, well if I were you right now I'd put it back together and send it to Sigma for repair cause you dismantle a lens like that there is no way you are going to align those lens elements without the proper equipment.

Using anything more then lens cleaner for camera optics will in fact remove the coating from the lens.

What you have isn't like the lenses from a "View" camera where it was possible to remove one lens group and replace with another but, those lenses were made and used 70 years ago.

Lens technology has changed a bit since then.

I had a manual focus Nikon F2.8 lens one time that had a coating separation on the front element that caused some wicked flare. I took eye glass cleaner and Windex to it to remove the rest of the coating so I could continue the shoot. I then sent the lens to Nikon for repair.

Best of luck with that one

You do not have enough BACK-FOCUS, you need an extension tube for the focuser like this one:

Focus ring jammed, lens having been dropped


Yes, it's possible. Do you have a lens collimator and other equipment needed to make sure the lens elements are aligned properly when you put it back together? If not, I strongly suggest you leave the job to a properly-trained professional technician.

Your finder is not aligned with your telescope. During the day time focus on a distant small object with the telescope-- then without moving the telescope adjust the crosshairs in the finder to match the telescope.

izzy41,
make sure the lens is properly connected and aligned, if it has been remove recently it may not of been put completely back to the right position causing the contacts to not align. Turn off the camera and remove and then remount the lens. The motors and the cost to replace/repair are almost as much as a new lens. Your lens can and should last a long time unless it has recently been dropped or tried on a camera (forced) the wrong way and the contacts were bent or damaged.

subaru662,
can you see the lens in the finder move when you zoom out? if not ,the finder lens is stuck.
if it does move when zooming, see if you have a diopter adjustment wheel or sliding knob near the front lens of the finder. if so adjust the lens to your eye.

Yukon yd-100 lens removal for camera fitting seems like thred is broken


When you say lens, did you unscrew the eye piece or the actual lense? because the eyepiece is meant to fit your adaptor for 35mm cameras etc. but the actual front lense should be tightly sealed and thread locked to make your glass (scope) waterproof to some extent and to protect the alignment of the other lenses within your scope. If it is possible your local camera shop may have the ability to re-align and seal your scope, but if not do you have a warranty? and if not even that, if i were you i would align and accraglass your piece back together, it's a last ditch solution that should last for years.

What lens do i insert into scope to view the moon


The moon is big so use the 25mm. The Barlow will have a multiplication marking on it 2x 3x etc. A 2x Barlow lens will effectively double the power of the eyepiece you are using. Do not use the erecting eyepiece for anything other than land viewing. Erecting eyepieces generally reduce the amount of light reaching your eye and thus reduce brightness of the faint objects in the sky.
So basically just place the 25 mm lens in the focuser and point the scope at the moon and you will be amazed at what you can see and how bright it is.

Viewing planets and stars


The problem is you are way out of focus. Turn the focus knob alot, until the star image gets much much smaller. Keep going until it looks like a pin point or a star!. The spider vane and center black dot will disappear. This black dot is actually the secondary diagonal mirror reflection in the primary mirror. The peace signs are the secondary supports. Use the lowest power eye pieces. I would not use the Barlow lens that comes with this scope as it very poor quality. Also, using this high power with this small an aperature (tube diamter) & unstable mount will be very difficult indeed. Invest in some wide angle, long eye relief low power lens. Use these for a while before going to higher powers.
