Hi Glenn

I would recommend the DS2000 should be DS2114 AT. The AT
refers to the use of the autostar hand box. This is a helpful tool for the beginner. Once you learn how to align the scope the computer will guide you around, helping you become familiar with the orientation of objects in the sky.

Problem viewing planets using 25mm eye piece. which eye piece works the best? nextstar 80 slt

The smaller the number on the eyepiece the greater the magnification-- the maximum magnification of any telescope is about 50 times aperture. You scope is about 3 inches -- so 150 power is the maximum usable magnification.

BUT-- only under perfect conditions -- perfect sky-- perfect optics -- perfect eyepieces. Usually 30-40 times aperture is all you will get on a typical night with some turbulence in the atmosphere.

This is one of the worst telescopes you could have purchased. Plastic eyepieces and a plastic focuser! We receive many complaints about not being able to focus.

Try again--- next time buy one of these which is the best value in amateur astronomy.

These are usually reproductions of antique draw tube telescopes used by naval officers. They can be bought new for under $125 dollars.

Extremely doubtful you can find any manual which will help you assemble the eyepiece.
