Put the lowest power eyepiece into the telescope-- that's the one with the LARGEST number on it--

Take the scope outside and point it at a distant object over 100 yards away. Then practice focusing the telescope-- turn the knob slowly.

I answered your question already-- TURN THE SCOPE around you have it mounted backwards! The eyepiece end is pointed UP. Like the picture above in your question.

Why is my picture upside down during the daytime ? on box says reflector. am i wrong when i had read that these have view as you would with binoculars


All astronomical telescopes have upside down images. There is no up or down in space; and it requires more glass elements to turn the image upright. More glass means less light will reach your eye.

Can't see anything through the lens?


Put the diagonal into the telescope-- then put the eyepiece that has the LARGEST number written on it. This is the lowest magnification. DO NOT USE THE BARLOW 2x multiplier !!

Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. The moon should be the first night time target you try to see.

Just got a 78-8831 and set it up according to instructions. After inserting lens into eyepiece, I can't see anything at all. Dont worry, I've removed the front cap from the the main telescope.

Something leads to believe I'm either missing something real fundamental or my telescope is broken. Please help

Not worth repairing-- a new focuser for your telescope would cost as much or more than the telescope-- unless you can find a discarded telescope of the same model..... for parts.

Lens came off-where do springs go?


There are a bunch of Sky Tour telescopes ---

which model you actually have??

I am assuming you have what is called a Dobsonian mounted reflector like this one:

Is that correct?
