    Sorry that you miss the occular section of the telescope. I have never used the one I have had for over 8 years, but tonite there's a Lunar eclipse and I finally got the telescope out of its packaging. I'm missing the manual, as well have a question regarding the two prongs on the main tube -with the washers and thumb-nuts --is that for some electrical/external wiring?? Thanks. Hope you find the occulars soon.

You need an eyepiece This scope uses .965in eyepieces. you can find them on Ebay. Maximum magnification is 100x NOT 420x. These scopes have inferior optics and terrible mounts. Don't spend much on this scope. Buy a 20mm (35x magnification) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Astro-Optics-20mm-965-Telescope-Eyepiece-NEW-/230688144635?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b615bcfb or a 15mm (45x magnification) http://www.ebay.com/itm/Astro-Optics-20mm-965-Telescope-Eyepiece-NEW-/230688144635?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b615bcfb on Ebay If you are interested in astronomy, you need to spend some money on a good scope.

Have a meade 60eq, can not see anything through the eyepiece. No matter how much I focus there is no image have I done something wrong our is the eyepiece messed up ?


See the picture above? put the diagonal into the focuser and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one.

Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object------ make sure the lens cap on the front is OFF.

The eye piece lens is missing. How do i find the model number of the telescope to order a new eye piece and a manul for this telescope


Most 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. None of these will be made by "Edu-Science", but 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.

You will find a large variation in prices, which is partly due to the difference in quality and type of construction of the eyepieces. Kellner eyepieces are simple and cheap, whereas Possl or orthoscopic ones are more complex and cost more. There are reasons why people will pay more for the better eyepieces. Avoid eyepieces marked with the letters "H" or "SR" before the focal length.

You can buy a diagonal from many on line retailers-- here is one:

They all come with a thumbscrew(s) to hold the eyepiece.

Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Try focusing on a distant object during the daytime--- again.

Replacement parts for Tasco binoculars


You'll need to measure your eyepiece in "mm". Also determine if your eyepiece has an outer ring the eyepiece will slip over. You can find eyecups/guards on Ebay. Search under Binocular Eyecup or Binocular Eye Guard. There are also eyecups under "rubber eyecups/rubber eyeguards" but alot of these are for Microscopes and may not fit. You will need to pay close attention to the mounting type and measurements.

Missing the eye piece for the Meade saturn 60az-m


ebay is a great resource for eyepieces, i would suggest a 26mm ma.
the eyepiece should drop in. if not you might be missing the image erecting diagonal. when the eyepiece is installed you should be looking perpendicular at the tube.

Missing parts ? re Tasco 302048


Probably -- the 4mm gives too much magnification for you telescope-- difficult to focus or find thing in the sky-- you should also have had an eyepiece somewhere between 17mm and 24mm for lower power viewing.
