i have a stellarvue 80mm refractor with feather touch 2in focuser on it, while i was reassembling the front objective lens after cleaning it i am looking down the tube from the front and noticed i can see a lot of daylight under the focuser between the tube as well half way up the sides of the focuser and tube walls, is this correct or are they supposed to be sealed off at this end anybody have any ideas please let me know thanks guys

If you look from the side where you put the diagonal and don't see the light leak I suppose you can live with it.

That should NOT be the case. The interior of that tube should be dark.
