I bought a Televue eyepiece adapter for my older field model scope so that I can use other 1 1/4 eyepieces that I have. Here's the link:
But, I've run into a problem. The Televue adapter will not lower my eyepieces close enough to the scope body for the finder to be in focus.
When looking through the scope of course, there is no problem because of the main scope focus knob. The original Brandon and its finder focus work fine.
I do have a single eyepiece that works. It is an old ortho eyepiece of uncertain origin. The only Televue eyepiece I have is a 2 inch (with 1 1/4 adapter) 16mm, and it is too far
away from the scope to have the finder come into focus.
So the question is whether others have had similar problems with the Televue adapter, or does the adapter only work with Televue eyepieces?
