If you can't get it to focus you may have assembled it incorrectly.

Found need a diagram of where lenses are, to tell if it works


You are NOT in focus. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Take it outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object.

I need the user's manual for the Polaris telescope I received as a item. I have difficulty focusing the telescope and there appears to be a hair inside one of the lenses.


You could try

operatingguides.com

if you need a user manual
or

servicemanuals.co.uk

if you want the schematics etc

We've used them in the past and found them very good.

Also if it is not listed then ask via the link and they
will probably be able to get it for you.

Do not know how to get black cover off of lense


First are you sure you have the CORRECT end of the scope pointed toward the sky? On a reflector type telescope that uses mirrors, the focuser is on the side of the tube on the UP end of the telescope. The mirror is in the bottom.

Mose caps simply pop off, others unscrew. You may be trying to remove the BOTTOM mirror!

How do the two objective lenses go in a telescope?


It depends if it is a REFLECTOR or a REFRACTOR style telescope. You never said what you own??

On a reflector the focuser is on the front end of the telescope on the side of the tube. The eyepiece goes into the focuser.

On a refractor style telescope the focuser is on the small end of the tube, the main lens is on the UP side pointed toward the sky. The eyepiece goes into the focuser on the backend of the telescope. Sometimes you will have a "diagonal" which goes into the focuser first and then the eyepiece goes into the diagonal. The diagonal makes it easier to look through the scope when it is pointed UP high into the sky.

See my TIPS on my profile page and read this web site:

Can't focus using 5mm lens


TOO much magnification for that 3 inch telescope. The most you will get is about 120 power or so on perfect sky nights. Try a 10mm or 9 mm as your most powerful eyepiece.

50 times aperture is the maximum possible.

Can't focus my telescope


If there is nothing on the objective lenses or eyepiece lenses then it most likely needs collimation. This is where you adjust the secondary mirror while viewing an out of focus star. You need stable sky conditions to do this.

There are most likely three small screws at the front of the telescope and these are what you use to adjust it. As one screw is loosened then another is tightened. Do this in very small increments. If you have your manual it should outline how to perform this. If not go to this web site: http://www.astrosurf.com/legault/collim.html. It will show examples of how objects look both in and out of collimation. There is a section further down the page for SCTs.

A very handy tool for this is to replace your screws with Bob's Knobs (http://www.bobsknobs.com/) . These replace the screws and allow you to adjust it by hand instead of a screwdriver.

The other focusing problem I've experience with my Celestron SCT is to have the focus knob loosen up and then slip as I turned it so that I could never focus with it.

Good luck and clear skies!

Misplaced lenses


You don't need to get Vivitar brand eyepieces to get replacement ones for your telescope. I'm not sure of the specifications for this particular telescope but in general they come in two barrel sizes for the eyepieces. The diameter of your eyepiece is probably 0.965" but could come in the more standard 1.25". You can measure the diameter and determine this quickly.

Once you know the diameter to shop for you can look for the focal length of the eyepiece you wish to purchase. They are rated such as 4mm, 10mm, 25mm, etc. The smaller numbers give you higher magnification. You can calculate the magnification by dividing the telescopes focal length by the eyepiece focal length. For example, let's say your telescope is has a focal length of 360mm and you have an eyepiece rated 10mm. Divide 360 by 10 and that gives you a magnification power of 36.

You can find eyepieces at many telescope dealers on the internet. Your selection will be far less if you use 0.965" eyepieces. You can purchase 0.965" to 1.25" adapters so that you can use the larger eyepieces with your telescope. However, on some telescopes the adapters will cause the new eyepiece to not come into focus.

You'll also find that eyepiece prices go all over the place. A good general purpose eyepiece is a type called the Plossl. The better eyepieces have more coatings too that allow more light to get through to your eye. You'll find these listed with terms like "fully multi-coated".

I hope this helps.

Good luck and clear skies!

Cannot see anything out of main telescope


Do NOT use the barlow lens-- put the lowest magnification eyepiece into the scope-- practice focusing on the moon -- turn the focus knob slowly in and out until you get a sharp image.

Telescopes only show an area of sky about 1 degree wide or LESS--- this is about the size of the TIP of your finger held at arms length................ your scope is best used at low magnification.

Cannot see through lense


A telescope only shows about 1 degree or LESS of sky-- this about the size of the tip of your finger held at arms length! Point it at the moon and practice focusing the telescope.
