Put the lowest magnification eyepiece in the telescope-- it's the one that has the LARGEST number written on it.

During the daytime, go outside and point the telescope toward a distant object at least 100 yards away and practice focusing the telescope--- turn the focus know very slowly. Do this until you learn how to get a clear view of the distant object.

Once you have it focused wait until dark --- don't turn the focus knob. Your first sky object should be the moon or Venus -- which is the BRIGHT "star" in the west after dark....
