Hi Guys, here are the pics.


To setups,

A: the way the eyepiece projection was advised by supplier to be setup, but with the addition of the digi t

B: Bert's suggestion to get as much distance as possible from eyepiece to toucam. The silver 1.25" cylindar is removed and eyepiece put on the bottom in this configuration.

B Setup
The distance from the 40mm eyepiece lens to the ccd of the toucam is about 85mm.

Hope this helps to solve the problem???

I would suggest sliding everything you can out halfway & lock everything using the locking screws to try to make up a bit more outward travel.
