Question about Celestron PowerSeeker 114 EQ Telescope
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.
