Astele 95 Zoom Spotting Scope

Thank you for your interest in www.OpticsPlanet.com. The LOMO Astele 95, http://www.opticsplanet.com/as95zmzoomsp.html, is an excellent scope and should have no problem focusing at 50 yards.

I would first make sure you have everything fully in place. Make sure the erect image prism and zoom eyepiece are inserted fully and locked down solid. Start on lowest power magnification (eyepiece should show a 24), and focus there first. If it still does not focus, then the scope may have a problem. Assuming it works, you then want to zoom in increments making sure to touch up the focus when needed.

I hope this helps. Good luck.
Best Regards,
Stan Mack
