Eypieces in telescopes usually come in two sizes .9" and 1.25" diameter. There are hundreds of scientific companies or telescope companies that can supply you with an inexpensive replacement. The eyepiece focal lengths, usually in millimeters, determines the magnification of the telescope. The focal length of the main lens divided by the focal length of the eyepiece is the magnification of the telescope. Usually two eyepieces are enough for your scope. Good luck

Commonly available astronomical telescope eyepieces are 1.25 inches in outside diameter. If the eyepiece tube on your scope is that dimension (inside diameter) then you will have no trouble finding lots of them in various focal lengths on Amazon or eBay. However, there are lots of "toy" telescopes that use proprietary eyepieces of smaller sizes, and these would be harder to get hold of.

Put the diagonal in the scope first and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. TURN THE FOCUS KNOB to focus the telescope. Practice during the day time on a distant object.

Hello, I m using the 60700 Telescope but the image i see in lens is very blurred, i assembled my telescope as per Manuel instruction but still i see upside down image with blurred effects. I tried several...


All astronomical telescopes show upside down and or inverted images-- it's normal nothing is wrong. You are applying too much magnification. Do not use the 2x barlow-- and start practicing how to focus using only the eyepiece with the largest number written on it which is your LOWEST power.

You can practice focusing during the daytime on a distant object like a telephone pole or a building.

How do you assemble the eye piece?


The diagonal goes into the focuser and then the eyepiece goes into the diagonal.

I need an eye piece for this telescope


Eyepieces come in THREE sizes, .965, 1.25, and 2 inch.

Measure the hole in the focuser. The .965 eyepieces are hard to find, since most telescopes are at least 1.25 inch.

Here are two on line retailers:

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:

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

Telscope eye piece


Eyepieces are for the most part interchangeable. Your scope will have a focuser on it in one of 3 diameters. 2", 1.25", and the rare .965". Most inexpensive scope will use a 1.25" eyepiece. 2" focusers are usually found on more expensive scopes used for astrophotography due to the increased field of view with the larger diameter. Plossl eyepieces are fairly inexpensive and are good for all around use. I would suggest getting 2 one at 25mm or greater and one around 9mm. http://www.telescopes.com has a large selection however their are many suppliers out there. Good luck and happy star hopping
