Question about Celestron PowerSeeker 60 Astronomical Telescope 21041 w/ FREE UPS

1 Answer

Acquired a used Parks Astronomical Telescope 60 mm - 700 mm. w/90degree eyepiece is a G.S-7 5mm. My 9yr old grandson (a future engineer) decided he wanted to know how it was put together and while I stepped out of the room for only 15-20 seconds he had the pieces all taken apart including the glass much to my dismay. I tried to reassemble the pieces the best I could but it won't focus. I need a detailed pictorial assembly with instruction so we can reassemble the pieces correctly.

Just found your posting kind of old but I hope this helps you--

Most of these small refractors assemble the same way-- so take a look at these Meade brand refractor manual and see if it helps you put it back together.

Focus the celestron 21043


What power eyepiece are you using? Use an intermediate power eyepiece like 20mm. This will give you a really nice view of the Moon. Too high a magnification eyepiece, will cause blur views.

I need the eyepiece for the vivitar refractor telescope ot accidently was broking when I shipped to the Bahamas


You don't say whether this is an astronomical telescope or a terrestrial one (spotting scope). However, I have a Vivitar scope which was sold as an astronomical scope, but is actually a spotting scope, although it uses astronomical style eyepieces, so...

I am not sure that it is the eyepiece you want, either. It is hard to break an eyepiece, but much easier to break the eyepiece mount or diagonal mirror fitting.

Most astronomical telescopes use a standard fitting eyepiece with a 1.25 inch outside diameter barrel. You can measure the mount where the eyepiece goes to make sure that yours is this size, then search on eBay or Amazon for "1.25 eyepiece" and you will find many available. It doesn't have to be made by Vivitar, any make will fit.

The other variable will be the focal length of the eyepiece, which is what determines it's power. The power of the scope will be the focal length of the main objective divided by the focal length of the eyepiece, so a 9mm eyepiece will give a higher magnification (and be dimmer and harder to focus and find objects) than a 20mm eyepiece. It is usual to have two or three different focal length eyepieces for viewing different objects.

Looking through the telescope, the view is upside down. Also, it's not clear how properly put on the different mm lens.


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images-- it's normal. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one.

I have a powerseeker 60 telescope, can't see now


You are using too much power for this small 60mm telescope. Use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it, and DO NOT USE the 2xbarlow which multiplies power by 2 times.

You only use this for terrestrial viewing, all astronomical telescopes show upside down images. It's normal.

However, what you need is called an "erecting prism" these are available from several on-line retailers. Here is one for sale:
http://www.astronomics.com/main/Image_Erecting_Prisms.asp/catalog_name/Astronomics/category_name/EDNECFUVSRWS8KLNTU5E38XSE1/Page/1

You have two problems: First the erecting prism probably costs almost as much as you paid for the telescope. Second they usually come ion 1.25 inch size, your telescope may be a .965 inch. Measure the hold where the eyepiece goes and see which size you have.

Sometimes Telescope Warehouse on Ebay has the .965 size.

How use a telescope celestron 21041


The power seeker 60's are hard to use a high power due to the 60mm objective. try starting out with a 25mm eyepiece on the moon or some think bright and work from there.

you use eyepieces to zoom in and out. lower mm eyepieces like a 6mm will have a high magnification. and a high mm eyepiece will have a lower magnification.
