Remove the eyepiece, and look down the focuser tube. The small diagonal mirror should have the full main mirror visible. If not, then adjust the diagonal mirror until all the main mirror is viaible, and the diagonal is centered. Then the main mirror is aligned until all the images viewed are concentric, with your eye being in the middle. That should do it.

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.

How do I adjust the Mars-eye elec. finder.

Contact Galileo telescopes here for help:

Assuming the batteries are OK, there should be adjustment screws on the finder for moving the red dot around.

Focus the telescope on a distant object, then without moving the scope adjust the dot on the same distant object.

I cant see out the thing at all. should both ends be stay covered.?

The end with the FOCUSER is point UP. The mirror is on the bottom. Many beginners mount these BACKWARDS pointed toward the ground.

I dont have a clue which end is suppose to be facing upward.

If you have a telescope with a MIRROR then the end with the focuser is pointed UP.

If you have a telescope with a lens in the front and and the focuser on the end, then the end with the lens is pointed up.

Read this and look at the pictures that show which end is UP:

Galileo FS-102CTC is not showing anything even after following instructions and adjusting the focus. I see my eyelashes and anything behind me.

This is a reflector style telescope with a MIRROR in the bottom of the scope tube, and a smaller tilted secondary mirror near the front of the scope tube.. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. During the day time take it outside and practice focusing on a distant object. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one.

The moon should be your first target at night. The eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it gives the LOWEST magnification.

Be sure the lens CAP is not still on the front of the telescope. The FOCUSER end is the FRONT of the telescope. It should look like this:

My problem is i just simply do not know how to set up the telescope

with the 3 screws that are in the later or primary mirror in the external part you can adjust it, centering their reflection in the finder but without lens

Not sure how my galileo telescope works

During the daytime put the LOWEST magnification eyepiece in the telescope-- that's the one with the LARGEST number written on it--

Practice focusing on an object at least 100 yards away.
