Use the lowest magnification eyepiece which is the one with the largest number on it--- DO NOT use the barlow which will DOUBLE the magnification!

Go outside and focus on a distant object (during the daytime) and practice focusing the telescope. Move the focus know slowly in and out until you get a sharp image.

Flip the housing for the objective lens (the black cylinder at the end of the telescope) around. the lens was installed incorrectly. you'll have to secure the housing into place with something. i used electrical tape, which doesn't look too bad.

The first step would be to start in the daylight and use the main telescope to scan your local landscape. Perhaps you have some objects like distant telephone poles that you can lock on to. After this, adjust the little spotting scope on the side of the main telescope body so that it is looking in the very same place. You are now setup for some night time viewing.

Note: Objects that you view in your local landscape are probably going to appear as being upside down. This is normal.

Focus


if the distance between lenses is even a hair's width off then images will be blurred. It may be that either the frame has been damaged and moved the internet components. If it is new or under warranty I would suggest returning it. Telescopes are very delicate instruments.

This is assuming your outer lenses have been cleaned properly and any focusing knobs have been used to attempt in focusing the device. Try looking on the manufacturer's website or calling them for a troubleshooting guide or frequently asked questions. It may give you a fast answer.

My 4 year old son got the Woody doll for christmas, and he is so attached to him, he goes everywhere with us. My son has never been attached to anything and this morning he woke up and Woody was in bed...


hi, i would call the customer service # and tell them exactly what youve written, make sure and throw in the fact that he is upset and wants to take him to show and tell!
no good solution for today, unfortunately. if you get no where with them, try disney itself, they are the best at customer service and usually can intervene on your behalf.
good luck!

We don't know how to operate the telescope! instructions only covered assembly! how to operate?


HI mthrede,

What you need to do after the assembly is to get both the telescope and the small sighting scope Calibrated so that they are both looking at the same object.

Start in the daylight and use the main telescope to scan your local landscape. What you are looking for is the likes of the tops of telephone poles, radio towers, or such to lock on to. You may need to use that focus knob down by the eye piece to clear your view. After this is done, adjust the little sighting scope to where it is looking at that same object. You are now ready for some night time viewing.

I got a telescope: emerson 50x/100x and i cant see anything in it


My son just got one too, and you can look down the street to see trees just fine, but in the sky, you will likely only be able to see the moon. It is bright enough to be seen with the 100x lens.

Everything in telescope is backwards


These are normal for an astronomical telescope. You can get erector prisms to fix it for terrestrial use - but astronomers just live with it.
