I have read all the postings and one helped. I think many of us are new to this and so are getting frustrated. One posting helped. Use the lens with the highest number you have. do not use the barlow it is too strong, Now go out side and point to a distant tree. It works using the focus screws more only a very little towards you and believe it or not you will see even the branches in the distant tree. I have posted more question now hopefully we will get nore answers. kauricot New Zealand

A telescope only shows about 1 degree OR LESS of sky--a TINY spot about the size of the tip of your finger held at arm's length!-- try pointing it at the moon and practice focusing it...... the moon is up just after dark right now.

How do you see the stars with it i don't see anything but my own reflection


You are NOT in focus-- practice focusing during the day time on a distant object using ONLY the eyepiece with the largest number written on it--

PUT the eyepiece with the largest number into the hole in the focuser.

How do i get look at the stars and the moon because i cant see anything?


We receive many complaints on these scopes. Some of them cannot be focused.

However put rge eyepiece with the largest number writeen on it into the diagonal. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. Turn the focus knob slowly.

Can't focus using 5mm lens


TOO much magnification for that 3 inch telescope. The most you will get is about 120 power or so on perfect sky nights. Try a 10mm or 9 mm as your most powerful eyepiece.

50 times aperture is the maximum possible.

Telescope will not focus on moon,stars etc. will focus on ground targets. i know there are 3 different optics and i know there use.are there up grades to make this new telescopes work? i e-mailed tasco of...


You won't get anything from TASCO - these are considered toy telescopes. Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2X barlow it is useless in such a small telescope.

Your first target should be the moon -- practice focusing on the moon until you can do it easily.

Daylight / night focusing problem meade


First read the manual-- cover to cover:
http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/DS2000%20manual.pdf

Then during the daytime-- put the lowest magnification eyepiece you have into the telescope(it's the one with the largest number written on it)-- and practice focusing on a distant object at least 100 yards away.

You have a GOTO scope but you must follow the alignment procedure in the manual for the scope -- or it will NOT find anything. The moon should be your first target at night--

Also suggest that you contact a local Astronomy club and attend their star parties-- they will be happy to help you learn how to use the telescope.

Cant see anything


Well you -- like hundreds of other people-- bought a department store telescope. Put the lowest power eyepiece in the telescope-- it's the one with the LARGEST number written on it.

Practice focusing during the day time on a distant object. I know the box said 500 power BUT you will only get about 100 power or less maximum that you can actually use.

New bushnell telescope, cant see anything, what am i doing wrong?


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

Go outside and practice focusing on a distant object at least 100 yards away-- turn the focus knob slowly.

Got a Tasco 60 x 700 telescope and can't see anything.


Your small telescope will never get much over 100 power-- sorry. So only use the lowest magnification eyepieces (those have the LARGEST number printed on them)-- try for the moon first-- and practice focusing the telescope.

Nothing------ stars are always JUST STARS no matter what scope you are using. They are too far away to see a disk. Point this scope at Jupiter, Saturn, Venus, Mars-- or other star clusters and the moon.

Remember stars are always just points of light-------- using Google look up the "Messier Objects"--- there are 110 of them in the night sky at different times of the year.
