Never heard of that brand. But all newtonian/reflector style telescopes work the same way.

Look around the Meade telescope manual web site for a reflector scope similar to your telescope.

Look under REFLECTORS-

Cannnot see anything through the telescope


I know this may sound really stupid but with old Mead reflector I kept forgetting to take the cap off the tube. Seeing that it sets down inside a bit it's easy to miss.

Purchase a 263/525 Reflector Telescope put it together, took off the eyepiece lens caps, but still unable to see anything. Does the end filter of telescope need to be removed?


The picture in your post is NOT a reflector style telescope:

This is a reflector:

Notice that the eyepiece is in the FRONT side of the scope. Take the front lens cap off-- the primary mirror is on the BOTTOM of the tube.

I bought aTasco Space Staion telescope (Model 49114500(Reflector) second hand,came with 4 different len's, but still can not see ANYTHING! There's a bright full moon out, but can not see anything. No light...


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Go outside and try again.. The end with the focuser is the UP end of the tube. The mirror inside is the BOTTOM of the tube nearest the ground.

Can't see anything and don't know which end is which.


You must have a REFLECTOR style scope with a MIRROR in the bottom. The focuser end is the UP end -- the mirror is on the GROUND end.

You probably have it mounted backwards.

It should look like this:

You have several Astronomy club's nearby. get one of the members to help you with the scope.

By the way the eyepiece and focuser is on the UP end of the tube!

Here is the manual:

I have a Swift short tube catadioptic equitorial reflector telescope Model # 856. It hasn't been usable since it was moved to a new location. It may be the mirror, I don't know. Who repairs these...


This is a small reflector style telescope on an EQ mount.

1. The mount must be polar aligned to Polaris

2. The scope may need to be collimated

Read my Equatorial mount TIP on my profile page that explains how to polar align.

and watch this video that explains collimation:

Image through telescope is tiny!


Never heard of that brand of telescope. Next time buy one from one of these retailers:

http://www.optcorp.com/

Try putting the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Then go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

Can not see anything thru the lens


Put the lowest power eyepiece into the telescope-- that's the one with the LARGEST number on it--

Take the scope outside and point it at a distant object over 100 yards away. Then practice focusing the telescope-- turn the knob slowly.
