Question about Celestron PowerSeeker 114 EQ Telescope

CELESTRON 127EQ faulty magnification

My 127EQ Newtonian Telescope does not increase in viewing power hundreds of times greater than that of the unaided eye using the 20mm eye piece with or without the 3x Barlow lens in tact. Infact
objects like a full moon appear further away (smaller). Any suggestions?

Are you looking through the eyepiece at the side or the finder scope that sits along the top? I can't think of anything else! Sorry.

It won't increase viewing power by hundreds of time but it should be able to show you a close up view of the moon and planets where they look closer (or with the moon, parts of it look closer). When you say it looks further away, something is quite wrong as you know. It sounds like the eye piece is backwards in the mount? Can't imagine what else would make it smaller. Also can't imagine you could even get it in backwards. I have a scope by Meade that is essentially the same Newtonian design. Best of luck.

Focus the celestron 21043


What power eyepiece are you using? Use an intermediate power eyepiece like 20mm. This will give you a really nice view of the Moon. Too high a magnification eyepiece, will cause blur views.

Does it make a difference to your viewing if you have a bigger length telescope or a smaller one


Focal length not physical length would better answer your question. Shorter focal length scopes have a lower power but wider view per size of eyepiece.
BUT!
Tasco telescopes are basically junk telescopes. Any telescope from Celestron, Meade, Orion, Explore Scientific or Televue (to name the more popular) will give you a superior view compared to the Tasco.
A 60mm scope has the maximum magnification of 225x (under perfect sky conditions. I suggest a small, short tube reflector in the 4 inch range. They are lightweight, have much more light gathering power (more important than magnification) and easy to set up.

Problem viewing planets using 25mm eye piece. which eye piece works the best? nextstar 80 slt


The smaller the number on the eyepiece the greater the magnification-- the maximum magnification of any telescope is about 50 times aperture. You scope is about 3 inches -- so 150 power is the maximum usable magnification.

BUT-- only under perfect conditions -- perfect sky-- perfect optics -- perfect eyepieces. Usually 30-40 times aperture is all you will get on a typical night with some turbulence in the atmosphere.

How to determine the lowest possible usable magnification for a telescope


Don't confuse low power with WIDE field. Usually to get the lowest power and widest field you need to move to a 2 inch eyepiece, and a 2 inch diagonal.

About 38-42mm eyepiece will be the lowest power. Take a look at the GSO Superview 2 inch eyepieces, which yield a wider view. and low power.

I have a Celestron Newtonian telescope, 76mm, 700mm. I am trying to locate the finder scope bracket to replace a broken one. I cannot find any other numbers, but it is about ten years old.


Simply buy another finderscope.

Many internet retailers sell finder scopes. Here is Orion Telescope:

Black spot in the center of the image viewed in telescope


If this is a Newtonian reflector or a catadioptric scope (Schmidt Cassegrain or Maksutov) you may be trying to use it at too low of a magnification. Your magnification needs to be high enough that the exit pupil is less than 5 mm; to figure this divide the focal length of the eyepiece by the f-ratio of the optical tube. If this quotient is 5 mm or more the black spot you are seeing is the shadow of the secondary mirror.

This is a pretty generic Chinese made 6" Newtonian reflector. The one's I have sampled produce excellent images. Celestron has a great online archieve of its manuals. This scope is similar to their C150-HD Newtonian Model #31056. The manual can be found here:
