I have had this D70 since November and am just now noticing this or something has gone awry. I now see a little line from the focus point in the viewfinder that extends to the closest side of the viewfinder when I press the button down half way to engage the auto focus. Its just one small little hair sized line almost like its connecting that little square that indicates what area will be in focus to the perimeter of the view finder.
Am I going insane, has it always been there, or do I need to send it in for service?
I am already running 2.0 firmaware and have for months but never saw this before.

The problem you might be having is that the view finder is out of focus. If this is the problem it is an easy fix. You
will see a small wheel next to the view finder (it has a + and a - next
to it), look through the view finder and let the camera focus on an
object. Now turn the wheel and you will see the image either get worse
or start to come in focus. Adjust the wheel until you are satisfied with
you have problem in capturing your video. you better use firewire to do it much better than old analog capturing device. Firewire is almost a hundred percent no loss of quality. just try it and find how. remember also that AVI file is better to any compressed formatted file.
Did you ever see any "light" how about something that looks like a donut with a hole in it?
The focus know could have come loose from the "rod" inside that moves the mirror. OR the finder scope really is NOT lined up exactly with the main tube.
Take the telescope out during the day and see if you can focus on a distant object like the top of a telephone pole. If you can focus just fine, then the finder scope is NOT lined up with the view in the eyepiece. Also try using a lower power eyepiece -- anything over about 22mm to get a wider field of view.
is there a little slider type bar/switch/button on the finder, most cameras have them to compensate for different peoples eyesight. if there is, look through it, put camera in auto focus and when its focused, look through finder and move bar/switch... til pic is clear
