Is the objective lense cap off?

If you will go to my profile page I have a TIP and instructions for using an equatorial mount.

This mount must be polar aligned before you can use it. That's why we never recommend an EQ mount for beginners. EQ mounts are very good for astro-photography however the low cost ones are too shaky to use. Normally you need to spend at least $500-$1500 to buy a usable EQ mount that can be used to take pictures of the sky.

SOURCE: the finderscope is showing everything upside down

Astronomical telescopes usually show an upside down image. There is a good reason for this- erecting the image needs more bits of glass in the light path, which reduces the amount of light and increases aberrations. Even if this is only slight, astronomers prefer to avoid it, and they don't really care which way up the Moon or Jupiter appear. It is possible to fit an erecting prism or eyepiece to most astronomical telescopes, and some of them come with one, but one wouldn't bother to do this with the small finder scope.

It is the first time that I have a telescope just want to now the finder scope why is it that if you look through it its upside down. Did I do something wrong or must it be like that?


It is normal with astro telescopes to show an image upside-down (and sometimes reversed as well). This is because stars (but not planets) look the same both ways. The finderscope is usually the same.

You can get correct-image finderscopes though

and for the telescope itself you would fit an erect-image diagonal prism, either 45 deg or 90 deg.

Image is upside down in Celestron PowerSeeker 114AZ telescope


That's because this telescope is what's called a reflector. The image in reflector telescopes are upside down. This isn't an issue since reflectors are designed for looking at the night sky.

Need the spare parts catalogue for a Celestron Powerseeker 60AZ telescope


By spare parts what do you mean? An eyepiece, a diagonal? a finderscope?

or is something broken like the front lens?

Anyway-- you can contact Celestron at this web site:
http://www.celestron.com/

and eyepieces, finderscopes, diagonals etc etc-- can be purchased from many different on-line retailers. Here are two:

When i look in the finderscope the objects r upside down but when i look in the big one theres nothing,even when i try and zoom in and out thers nothing moving


Some finders show things upside down. There is no up or down in outer space.

During the daytime focus on an object like the top of a telephone pole a good distance away.

Without moving the telescope adjust the finder scope so that the "crosshairs" in the finder are centered on the same object as the main tube. Most astronomical telescopes show upside down and reversed images.

look for the instructions and see if there's some sort of lock that you have to undo to make the lens clear

Things are upside down looking thru the eyepiece on main telescop


If things are upside down in your telescope, you probably have a reflector telescope.it has curved mirror in the sealed end.take off the cover near the finder and point in the general direction of what you want to see.Make adjustments with the stuff on the mount.If you are viewing terrestrial objects, you will need an inverting lens to correct the image.It is called a Barlow lens and is much longer than the other lenses that come with the telescope.Good Luck

Finderscope image upside down & not focused if viewing past 100 yards


The upside down image is normal for astronomical telescopes. The finder usually is a fixed focus, but it can be altered for various eye types, by rotating the objective lens for focus - the cell should move in or out on fine threads.
