I just built my first telescope and I'm having a focusing problem. The telescope will focus on something about 20 feet away but won't focus on anything further than that. It has a 6" f/5 mirror, 1.3" secondary. The tube is 8" diameter. The mirrors are spaced 24" apart. The focuser is Orion's cheapee for the 1.25" eyepieces. What did I do wrong? Any help will be very much appreciated.
