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....

Cant see anything ?


I going to straight forward on this answer. This telescope is a useless piece of junk! The tripod is unstable, the .965 (obsolete size and design) eyepieces will only focus dead center. The finder is useless, too narrow a field to find anything. The high power eyepiece exceeds the maximum useful magnification (only 98x max under perfect conditions) This may be used for terrestrial viewing but worthless for astronomy.

How do you use the vivitar telescope? i cant see anything through it!


I am very sorry but this is one of the worst telescopes you could possibly buy. Plastic eyepieces, and even a plastic focuser. Many people have problems using this cheap telescope.

Try again--- next time buy something like this, which is the best value for the money in amateur astronomy.

Can see any thing vivitar Please Help frustrated and confused


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the "diagonal" that came with the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. The moon should be your first night time target.

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.
