Guide :Optics : 22 Riflescope

I have a Tasco Silver Antler 4x rifle scope mounted on a .22. When trying to get it sited in, I get it close to where I want, and then the adjustments seem to reverse, ie. if I turn the elevation knob in the direction that has been raising the point of impact, it suddenly starts lowering the impact. I suspect that the shop that installed the scope did so in a manner that has up against the stops for adjustments. How do I center the reticle in the scope, so I can remount it and have the maximum amount of adjustment available.

GoTo Problem Please Help... im and going crazy!!! I have a Celestron Nextstar SLT 130 GoTo scope and love the pictures it produces but cant get it to GoTo very well. It dose the three star alignment, 1 star alignment and solar alignment fine and have no problems with alignment, level the scope well and set the time to nearly the second. Once aligned and i start to move the scope around the night sky, if i try to ask the socpe to slew back to a star, even an alignment satr, it goes in the general direction but doesn't bring the star into the view field and is off by a significant amount. I have tried centering the star in the view and then asking the scope to find that star and it goes out of the view by the same amount every time. Im goging crazy. I thought it was a motor problem and swaped the scope at the store but the new one is exactly the same. I just dont know what is wrong. Im in the southern skies and only reviews is for the northern, dont know if this matters. Any help would be fantastic. Just cant get it to slew to any objests correctly!


Be sure that the telescope is configured for EQ SOUTH mode to tell it is in the southern hemisphere. Once a star alignment is completed NEVER manually move the telescope. Use only the control panel to slew. Everytime the telescope is move by hand, the motors do not know it has been done, and assume it is still pointing at the old direction. Check the manual for setup.Here: http://www.celestron.com/c3/images/files/downloads/NexStar_SLT_manual.pdf

I purchased a Fujinon 3.5-10X50 rifle scope a few years ago and mounted it on a Remington 7 MM Mag. I am unable to pull a group less than 12 inches at 200 yards and have not been able too since installing the new scope. I removed the scope and replaced with a Redfield 6X40 fixed and I am now able to shoot 2 inch groups. I never reinsatlled the Fujinon but would like to send the Fujinon scope in for repair so I can install it on a different rifle and begin using it. I really like the Fujinon optical clearity and would like to start using it again.


It is most likely the mounts not the scope. I would just install it on the new gun and check it there. Most times a scope that wanders is the mounts. One thing with big scope is they need to be tight or the recoil will move it in the mounts. Next due to being tight when the gun heats up it can and will tweak the scope in the mounts enough to move your center. Try it in your other gun, try 3 shot groups and let the gun cool. Recheck your center. If it is good with a cold gun all is well. If it moves from one day to the next it is the mounts. If you count the clicks to recenter, come back the next day and move it the same clicks, it is the mounts. If it is all over the place, day after day it is the scope.

Question about Swarovski Scopes


Iv had this problem many times before,,,its more likley to be a bad set of mounts not inline with the barrel,,, if you have ran out of windage adjustment,, to get over it i use a strip of 35mm film inside the scope mount to push the scope over a bit,,, but a new set of mounts would be the best way forwards

Meade LX200GPS The scope does not complete the 'Auto Alignment'


Once the scope has taken a GPS fix and knows TIME, and SITE, and you do a two star alignment your alignment stars overide any automatic alignment issues. You could turn off the GPS put in Time, Date, and Site, do a two star alignment and everything would be fine. Centering the alignment stars is the "trick". Apparently the scope also finds NORTH OK, or the alignment stars would be way off. Since you pre-level the tripod already the software can FAIL on "tilt" and you still get good gotos.I would not worry about it, especially since your gotos seem perfectly fine.

Crosman 2104 Air Rifle


I had the same problem with my 2100. you would have to take it apart. the barrel is held in place with a small allen bolt. you would remove the bolt and slap some locktight on it and retighten.  that should solve your problem but i would think twice before taking it apart cuz its kind of tricky getting it back together and I would replace any seals while you have it apart. good luck
