    I tried with the diagonal and without it with no avail.

    I returned the telescope yesterday and picked up a replacement (same scope). Works wonderfully! I suspect one of the lenses in the original was installed incorrectly. I can see objects as close as 50 feet clear as a bell =) now I need to try it at night. Thanks for the help everyone
