My daughter recieved a telescope 50x/100x w/ tripod for christmas and we are unable to see anything out of it? Not to mention that one of the focus lens did not come with a cap.


This is considered a toy telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser-- DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

I got a telescope: emerson 50x/100x and i cant see anything in it


My son just got one too, and you can look down the street to see trees just fine, but in the sky, you will likely only be able to see the moon. It is bright enough to be seen with the 100x lens.

We have a Vivitar 50x/100x Refractor Telescope. I can't find the eye pieces. Any ideas on where to find them online? Most of the comments/reivews I've read say it's not a good telescope...


Commonly available astronomical telescope eyepieces are 1.25 inches in outside diameter. If the eyepiece tube on your scope is that dimension (inside diameter) then you will have no trouble finding lots of them in various focal lengths on Amazon or eBay. However, there are lots of "toy" telescopes that use proprietary eyepieces of smaller sizes, and these would be harder to get hold of.

No replacement parts available for that telescope. Suggest you take the tripod to a well stocked hard ware store and see if they have any screws, bolts, or clamps that would repair the tripod.

You can buy another photo tripod of course.

Missing eyepiece.


You can buy an eyepiece from 1000 different retailers-- just get the correct SIZE usually 1.25 inch BUT many of these smaller scopes have .965 eyepieces-- MEASURE the hole. Here are two places that sell eyepieces--
