    Re: Cannot focus sextant telescopes

    Is E a solar filter (very dark glass)? Does E screw onto F, D and C? Does C slide into A and B?

    I cannot get my sextant telescopes to focus.  I have attached a photo of the telescopes and fittings.

    In particular I am puzzled by the lens labelled F. It has male threads on both sides. The threads are of different diameters. Despite trying every possible combination I cannot work out how it is meant to be used. I am wondering I am missing a tube with a female thread at one end, although there aren't any empty slots in the case.

    Any help with a Sextant Telescopes 101 would be appreciated.
