  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.
  8. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  9. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  10. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

I just bought a Meade 114Q-ASTR refelector telescope. I have followed directions for assembly but I can't get it focused by the directions it gives. How do I focus the telescope?


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. During the daytime practice focusing on a distant object OUTSIDE.

This is your lowest magnification and the easiest to focus. Turn the know slowly in each direction until the image comes to focus.

The focal tube on my Meade DS 114 has several stripped teeth. The auto-focus skips and jumps! Where can I find a replacement part (Meade no longer carries them) OR how can I repair this; ie, create new...

Unable to focus telescope


You never said what type of telescope you have???? While you can buy replacement focusers they are expensive and probably not worth doing. Here is a link to some replacement focusers.

My focuser ring fell of and I wonder where I can get a replacement focuser ring.


To replace the focuser would be more than the telescope is worth. Never buy a telescope costing under $200 those are just toy scopes.

Try this one for your next telescope:
