Hello All !

                 I unscrewed the Finderscope eyepiece (a 6x30 i think) of my Vixen 80L and proceeded to unscrew the field stop, with the intention of putting in crosshairs on the field stop. But then i accidentally (clumsy me) flipped things around... So i just wanted to be sure that i`d be putting things back correctly.

 

                So starting rearmost of the finder : 1 ) Lower the Eye lens (a cemented doublet with convex portion pointing forward, as in towards the field lens ). 2 ) Lower the spacer (with smaller diameter hole facing the eye lens ). 3 ) Lower the Field lens (a plano convex lens, with convex portion pointing towards the front as well). 4 ) Screw in the field stop.

                So other than making sure they all go in square and aligned, is that all there is to it ? Thank You.

I finally figured it out.
