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.

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.

Zuiko 70-300mm lens focusing problem


Haha!!
Maybe its something you're not doing, LOL.
Look on the side of the lens. Most of the 70-300 macros have a slide switch. My Tamron, for instance, needs to be zoomed out to 300, then slide the switch to Macro and its ok. Look for the slide switch. You might also notice lines of a different color to denote Macro.
Some days it too tough to be smarter than the lens,
LOL.

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.

Canon 70-200mm f/2.8 IS lens not focusing


I have had to replace the focusing servo motor is these before. The problem of seeking without locking in may mean the same for your lens. Do check for a dirty filter on the front and look to see if the rear optic is dirty or cloudy first. I'm assuming other lenses work fine on your camera.

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.
