Not worth fixing-- next time you buy a telescope look at a small Dobsonian like this one--

or the 6 inch version of the same scope--

I can't see a thing through the eye piece


Is this a reflective telescope? You need to make sure a couple things. Make sure the small mirror is still in place. Usually the eyepiece can be pulled gently out. Make sure no packing material is on the inside of the eye piece.

Quisera saber como armar mi telescopio marca Tycho modelo ub-3700


The image is of a telescope. This type of scope has only one optical part in the tube, a mirror on the end opposite the focuser end. The smaller tube just goes in to the focuser and it uses a small screw to hold it in place. If the lenses are truly taken apart then there may still be hope as most critical optics are glued together with crystal clear glue.Clean them and reassemble. Be sure to use the longest focal length eye piece you have (50 mm is better than 5 mm) if you want to find anything!

I need an eye piece for a Tasco 302675 60mm x 900mm and a copy of a anual if possible ?


Look on eBay for a 1.25 lens by 25 MM These are simple rugged and inexpensive scopes. Their well deserved reputation comes from the large pile of junk accessories that are provided with them.
p.s. You asked this question 2 years ago. Set the scope out to the trash... and get a different hobby.

Telescope eye piece


The two popular eyepiece sizes are 1.25" & 2 in.
Older 'scopes may have 0.96 in eyepieces.

Meade model 6600 need eye pieces


This telescope has a 1.25" eyepiece holder. This is standard, many brands are available. If you are just getting started a few eyepieces are all you need. I recommend Plossl or Super Plossl at approximately 32 mm, 12.5 mm, and something from 6-9 mm, but this really depends on what you are looking at most often. Add one Barlow and you have the equivalent of 6 eyepieces.

When I was getting started, I bought a simple kit from Zhumell (Lunar and Planetary) which came with barlow, moon filter and several other filters. These are better than the cheap plastic ones that come with low end telescopes, but still very affordable and reasonable quality for beginner/intermediate users. Celestron, Meade, and others have similar kits, and smaller ones if you are on a budget. Used lenses can be found on Astromart classifieds and Cloudy NIghts or other astronomy forums.

More importantly, I bought a good book (Star Watch by Harrison) and spent some time learning how to find things. A telrad (unit-finder) was very helpful too.

My Galileo telescope shows the front cross bars and mirror base in the eye piece regardless of the eye piece I use. What is causing this issue?


You are NOT turning the focus knob far enough to achieve focus. Practice during the day time on a distant object.

Can't figure out how to put the eye-pieces (3) on our Selsi Telescope 335x.


All eyepieces go into the FOCUSER end of the telescope. You never said if this is a REFRACTOR or a REFLECTOR style telescope.

On a refractor you have a lens in the front and the focuser in the back.

On a reflector the focuser is on the SIDE of the telescope near the front end.

The diagonal goes in first --- and the eyepiece goes into the diagonal -- if this is a refractor style telescope. Here is a picture of the DIAGONAL.

Black spot in the center of the image viewed in telescope


If this is a Newtonian reflector or a catadioptric scope (Schmidt Cassegrain or Maksutov) you may be trying to use it at too low of a magnification. Your magnification needs to be high enough that the exit pupil is less than 5 mm; to figure this divide the focal length of the eyepiece by the f-ratio of the optical tube. If this quotient is 5 mm or more the black spot you are seeing is the shadow of the secondary mirror.
