Question about Vivitar 50x / 100x Refractor Telescope
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.
