SOURCE: My Galileo telescope shows the front cross bars

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

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.

Last used viewing was fine. After being stored the image now is side ways. the same eye piece was used. Hope you can help! Ray


The image is also UPSIDE DOWN -- all astronomical telescopes show inverted images --- it is normal. No up or down in space.

Light simply enters the tube hits the mirror on the back and bounces up and hits the smaller mirror under the focuser. That's all there is to 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?

Can't see out of eye piece


This is a reflector style telescope. The MIRROR is in the base! Light enters the front near the focuser and goes down the tube and bounces off the mirror and back to the front and through the eyepiece. The EYEPIECE end is pointed up.

Your scope TUBE should look like the reflector telescope on this web page:

Wish you had NOT bought this telescope. For about the same price you could have bought this:

The scope above has a 6 inch mirror which is almost twice the size of the scope you bought.

Will it work without the eye peice and Diagonal


It will work without the diagonal (maybe) if you have enough focus range BUT it must have an eyepiece. Measure the hole. It's eithe .965 or 1.25 inch-- you can buy eyepieces at many online retailers. Here is one:

Cant adjust the mirrors to see any thing


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.

Mirror fell out and broke I've got the 25 mm eye piece and lost the others


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--

Cannot see anything.


Start by adjusting the focus draw tube all the way in, then back a little bit. In the day time indoors, remove the lens from the draw tube. Look into to the draw tube. You should be able to see your eye centered in the mirror. If you cannot see your eye at all, either the primary is tipped drastically or the secondary mirror is way out of adjustment. In that event I would return this scope to where you got it.
