not coming into focus

Posted By jerry palmer

i am new to the refracter scene.i just bought a genesis non sdf, i put my newer 2 inch televue diagonal in it and a 12mm type 2 nagler. when i rack the focuser out all the way stars do not come into focus. it needs about another quarter inch of travel to come into clear i have been moving the diagonal itself back to gain focus,is this right??i currently own a sct with no problems with this diagonal. so is the genesis at fault???

been using a TV bino and 2x amplifier with my TV Genesis(nonsdf) f/5,no EP sets are 32mm TV plossls,24mm UO Konigs and 19mm TV panoptics.low power rich field viewing is just great with a bino and a fast refractor!!!!
