Eye pieces are interchangeable and you will want a few of them for different magnifications.
The previous owner probably got a new scope and kept them for that.
Here's where I go for lens' in Toronto Canada.

The rule of thumb is cheaper eyepieces are ok for the low magnification 35mm-20mm but as you get to higher magnification a better eyepiece will make more of a difference. How expensive is up to you and how serious you are into this. I think my better lens was a used tele-vue for $80

    make sure to get 1.25" eyepieces, i'm sure that's what you need from the galaxsee scopes i've seen.
    As for the manual I would recommendhttp://www.amazon.com/Nightwatch-Practic...
    get the spiral bound, you'll want it open when your looking for things. It was what I started with, with no telescope manual, with a used scope, and i turned out just fine.

Missing eye piece,where can I buy replacement


That telescope uses standard 1.25" eyepieces, which can be bought at any scope shop. Or you could go mail order, such as
http://www.optcorp.com/product.aspx?pid=30-719-723-2246

For that scope I would not spend a fortune on an eyepiece.

Hi, a few days back I purchased Nexstar 4SE. I set it up exactly how it says in the manual still I cannot see any magnifying views from the eye piece. While aligning the telescope I can find the moon from...


Stars will always appear as points. It is not possible to magnify them enough to see them as disks because they are all extremely far away. A telescope will however show you stars and other objects that are too dim to see with the naked eye.

You will be able to see the planets as disks, and even features on the planets, such as the bands on Jupiter, the rings of Saturn and the phases of Venus, and also moons around some planets. There are other objects that will show more detail when magnified, such as nebula. You will be able to see a lot of craters and other detail on the Moon.

Your problem is simply that you are not pointing the telescope at these objects. This seems to be one of those telescopes that "automatically" finds objects, but these so called "go to" scopes only do this when they are set up properly. I can't say what step(s) you have missed, but clearly even if the scope thinks it is pointed at the moon, if you can't see the moon, it is NOT pointed there. The Moon will fill the field of view even with the least powerful eyepiece. If you are seeing stars as points, then the eyepiece is focussed and working properly.

Just put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

I recently bought a Cstar Optics T45375 from a garage sale. it seems one of the inner scopes inside the eye piece is missing. is there anywhere i can go to see if it is missing and if so where can i get a...


Inner scope??? you mean the eyepiece (s) are broken. Measure the hole eyepieces come in 3 sizes, .965, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes.

The .965 eyepieces are very difficult to find as most amateur telescopes use the 1.25 inch size.

Try Telescope Warehouse or Agena Astroproducts for a replacement eyepiece:

Don't ever buy another off brand telescope at a garage sale that you know nothing about.

Eye pieces


I'm surprised it did not come with the 20mm eyepiece. That is a good all-around eyepiece that works well for viewing across the bay or looking at the Moon. You may also want to get a barlow to "right" the Earth based images.

I recommend purchasing a 20mm eyepiece for your viewing pleasure. I hope this FixesYa!
