Spot on pictures

There is a blury spot on lcd and on pictures which is quite diffuse without magnification but becomes smaller and more distict when the zoom is used. I have cleaned the exterior lens but to no avail. Could dust or something got inside the lens housing? and if so, how hard is it to dismantle and clean the lens assembly? Thanks

Well short answer to your dismanlter question is do not. Contact Canon for a repair cost - this is fine lab work not for the kitchen table.

Changhong tv board# V500DK2-CKS2 ********* part near center of this board gets very hot. No picture, no sound. Standby light goes off. Could this board be the problem?

That board has large chips on it and you did not say if it is one of the chips that is getting hot. The board has surface mounted parts and they require special tools to work on. An infrared camera is needed to spot smaller components that are overheating and a magnification unit and special rework station to solder parts.

How to Spotting Scopes Work?

Spotting Scope is a type of telescope typically used for observing wild animals and birds. A spotting scope features more magnification than a conventional binocular but less than an astronomical telescope.
The utility of a spotting scope becomes most obvious when the identification of an animal going in a large herd is required. Figuring out a specific animal from other look-alike animals becomes easy with such a device. For digiscoping purposes, few things can beat the power of spotting scopes. It is possible by using binoculars or telescopes to take a closer look at birds or other animals, but if you want a precise view of your target animal, a spotting scope is preferable.
Spotting Scope Features Explained
  • Objective lens
    Objective lens, also known as the Front lens, determines the image quality at higher magnifications. The diameter of this lens ranges from 50-100mm in size. It is also called "Aperture" of the lens. It is wise to buy the highest size of the objective lens considering its weight. Larger lenses allow to pass more light and create more bright images. This means you will get higher image quality with the larger lenses.
  • Lens Coating
    Manufactures often apply the chemical coating, which is known as Lens Coating, on the lens to reduce noise and increase light transmission. They also offer "fully coated," "multi-coated" and "fully multi-coated" lens to improve image quality. The premium quality spotting scopes' lenses are multi-coated with multiple layers on the surface.
  • Focusing
    There are two types of focusing mechanism in the spotting scopes such as Helical and Knob focusers. The focusing characteristics determine how quickly you can focus on the object with maximum precision. Between these two options, the helical focuser is the finest option for birding as it can change magnification rapidly along with the movement of the bird. For hunting or spotting slower animals, Knob focuser is best as it gives you more precise information than the former one.
  • Eye relief
    The eyepiece remains at a little distance from the users' eyes. This distance is called the eye relief where the light rays transmitted from the object pass to enter into your pupil. The comfortable eye relief distance is about 15mm to see the full field view. This feature is very important for those who wear eyeglasses. Nowadays, manufacturers are offering long eye relief for those who need to wear eyeglasses for convenient viewing.
  • Image Quality
    You might have seen some designation on the glass label of the spotting scope such ED glass, APO glass, HD glass, Fluorite glass. These special qualities of glass will cost you more but create a huge difference in image quality comparing low-quality lenses. Remember, you must pay for the good quality images when it comes to buying any types of optical instruments.
  • Magnification
    The magnification of spotting scope is higher than standard binoculars and varies between 15x to 75x. The power of the eyepiece determines the magnification of the scope. The important fact you should know that image quality drops off as the magnification goes up. Even premium quality scopes also lose a little quality at the highest magnification.
The condition of the atmosphere has effects on birding, hunting and digiscoping too. Humidity, ever-moving air, dry climates, dust and so on hinders the magnification and image quality at large.

Just bought a starnavigator 114. Purchased a Barlow lens to use with my 26mm lens, but with the barlow I can't see anything. Do I need to make changes in the lens config. in the Autostar?

The barlow may be too much magnification for that aperture telescope. The higher the magnification the SMALLER the sweet spot is in focus.

Turn the knob slower and also practice focusing during the day time on a distant object.

Grey cloud

This sounds like a diffuser problem. Basically the LCD Panel is defective.

32" LCD TV use about 8 horizontally mounted flourescent bulbs. They use a plastic material that diffuses (spreads) the light from each bulb evenly on the screen. If this Diffusion Material becomes wrinkled it will leave a grey cloudy look on the screen.

It is possible that the LCD Panel Glass is defective buy honestly I would guess the diffuser.

This isn't cheaply repairable and it is better to replace the TV unless you are experinced with Electronics repair. There may be a possibility to pull this material out and replace it with something readily available from Home Depot but I have not tried this before. It is possible to pull this from another LCD TV.

DSC w5 has a spot in every picture

Assuimn there is nothing on the lens[I would not think this is the case as it would not show as a distict spot Not ne fora DIY or a repairshop this is a a failure of the CCD. Depending on the age of the camera and model this may qualify for replacement, as there was a reported CCD issue at one time Either that or Sony may offer a replacement at a good discount.
