Have a Pentax Asahi 12 x 50, 5.5 deg, PCF, I believe, and I'm trying to fix it for a family member. 

 

The eyepiece on the left side doesn't respond to the focuser thumbwheel.  I can't see how to access what I assume is a fork that is broken or off  it's track.

 

Anyone have suggestions of how to get access to the fork area?

 

Thanks.

I have these and they are excellent, my suggestion is that they are worth sending to a repair agent as I did when I dropped them. I also have Celestron 25 * 70 and the Pentax quality is many times better in construction, Pentax are a keeper for me.
