Question about Edu-Science (10166) Telescope
My son got the Astrolon 525 power telescope with Barlow lenses for Christmas. It was easy to put together but we cannot see anything out of the main telescope. We are able to view the moon through the Finderscope but cannot see it through the main telescope. Have put in a Barlow lense, different eye pieces, moved the focus knob, but we do not see the moon through the main telescope. Please help. Thanks
Do NOT use the barlow lens-- put the lowest magnification eyepiece into the scope-- practice focusing on the moon -- turn the focus knob slowly in and out until you get a sharp image.
Telescopes only show an area of sky about 1 degree wide or LESS--- this is about the size of the TIP of your finger held at arms length................ your scope is best used at low magnification.
