SOURCE: Why can't I see anything?

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the scope and try again. Contact Bushnell directly for repairs:

SOURCE: Hi, a few days back

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.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x or 3x barlow if you have one. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object like the top of a telephone pole or a distant building. Turn the focuser knob until the image comes to focus.

First find a local Astronomy club -- the members will help you.

Second, you must first align the red dot finder with the main tube-- there are knobs on the side and bottom (usually) to move the red dot. Point the scope at the top of a telephone pole in the distance during the day time-- wget the top in the center of the eyepiece of the main tube. Without moving the main tube adjust the red dot so it points at the exact same spot.

Turning it all the way in or out is NOT how you focus-- there is a small "spot" when the eyepiece is in focus, and every other eyepiece must be refocused. Turn the knob slowly until the star or the moon comes to sharp focus.

Falta alguns detalhes para montar o telescopio 60700 ,chines,e as funçoes das lentes e como utilizalas.


Quanto maior o n?mero na lente menor ser? a amplia??o. Este ? um telesc?pio refrator de estilo, muito simples de usar.

Coloque o diagonal na parte de tr?s do telesc?pio, e em seguida, coloque a ocular na diagonal.

I am missing the piece that screws on to the focus tube. My 60700 was given to me. where can I get this item.


You mean the diagonal? or the entire focuser?

Purchasing either one will be expensive- here are examples of both items:

http://www.meridiantelescopes.com/telescopefocuser.htm

You could buy a pair of 10x50mm binoculars which would be almost as large an aperture as your 60mm telescope.

How to use it?


Go outside during the day and practice focusing at a distant object at least 100 yards away-- at night the moon should be your first target.

VEIWFINDER IS BLURRY CANNOT SE OBJECTS CLEARLY


At the bottom of the eye piece there is a little slider than you can move up and down to adjust the focus. That should fix your problem if not then you are not looking into the eye piece close enough make sure your eye is pressed up against the little rubber pad and then adjust the focus.

Daylight / night focusing problem meade


First read the manual-- cover to cover:
http://www.meade.com/manuals/TelescopeManuals/Reflectors/DS2000%20manual.pdf

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.

Govideo player dv-2140


Ususlly "sticking and "stopping" is caused by only a few of things. (1) make sure the dvd/cd is free of smudges and scratches. (2) Make sure the laser eye is clean of dust or smudges. Turn player OFF, blow across eye, if need use soft dry Qtip and carefully wipe eye, blow away any loose fibers left from Qtip. Do Not try to clean with any cloth material. (3) OR your laser assembly may be sticking and not travelling smoothly. Do Not try to repair this yourself, find an electronics qualified person to check and clean this assembly.
