Question about Meade DS-2114 ATS (325 x 114mm) Telescope
Hope some body can help me , my wife bought me a DS2114ATS for xmas allthought it looks well looked after not a mark on it alloriginal box etc. I can't see thing with it, and now my kids are starting to moan as they were all excited to see the moon .
With the ma25mm eye piece in i can focus at an object about 20ft or so away, but when i try to focus at a building 4 - 500ft away it is blurred vision any further away from this you can't see a thing.
When looking at the moon or stars there is just a blob.
Am i doing something wrong or have we bought a duff. I have looked through the destructions and as far as i can tell the collimation looks ok (as far as can tell) have tried adjusting secondary mirror but no difference, hav'nt touched the primary mirror but looks central. PLEASE somebody help, thanks
First read the manual-- cover to cover:
Then during the daytime-- put the lowest magnification eyepiece you have into the telescope(it's the one with the largest number written on it)-- and practice focusing on a distant object at least 100 yards away.
You have a GOTO scope but you must follow the alignment procedure in the manual for the scope -- or it will NOT find anything. The moon should be your first target at night--
Also suggest that you contact a local Astronomy club and attend their star parties-- they will be happy to help you learn how to use the telescope.
