I can look through the front lens and see out the front perfectly clear (albeit very small).  When I try to look through it regularly I can't see anything (almost like it's completely fogged up.)  I'm an admitted noob with spotting scopes and got this in an auction lot.  It's a Yukon Scout 30x50wa.  I'd love to have a functional spotting scope.  If this is broken is it worth fixing?  Thanks for the help.

it's not worth fixing because it's not worth much in mint condition either. 

When they are broken there usually is a rattle inside. Make sure that it is fully extended.

 I'm an idiot.  That did it.  Thanks a million.
