I called Land, Sea, and Sky / Texas Nautical and spoke with Art. I explained that I had bought it second hand and described the problem. He told me to bring it in (I live near Houston) it was under warrenty. On arriving I noticed the newer models had rear 1-1/4" adaptors that were 3/4" shorter than mine.
The salesman swapped out the adaptor to the shorter type, set up the scope on the front sidewalk, and we spent about 20 minutes checking focus on my eyepieces and barlows on a distant radio tower. Art said it was a direct exchange. Problem solved.
I would like to commend LSS/TNR for their support of the Takahashi scope, even though it was second hand. They even took the model number and registered under my name.
By the way, I really love this little scope.
