Question about Celestron Optics
Celestron ps 1000 reflecting telescope...
Do stars appear as small pinpoints in your scope? If not then it sounds like you have not adjusted the focus properly. I recommend you take your telescope outside in the daytime and point it toward a building or tree or hilltop that is somewhat distant from you. The exact distance is not important, but it should a block or more.
With the telescope pointed at the distant object, focus the telescope until the object is sharp and clear. The object might appear upside down -- that's normal for many astronomical telescopes. When you have achieved a sharp focus, leave the focus control alone until you are outside at night under the stars.
The focus should now be fairly close for viewing stars and planets. Small adjustments of the focus control may still be necessary for the sharpest view.
Venus is sometimes a difficult object. It is often fairly low in the sky where the atmosphere is most likely to blur the view. Find a bright star and focus it to a pinpoint, then swing your scope toward Venus.

The power seeker 60's are hard to use a high power due to the 60mm objective. try starting out with a 25mm eyepiece on the moon or some think bright and work from there.

You did tighten the clutches?
If you did the DEC gears are either loose and not meshing or have broken.
Dr. Clay in Arkansas can repair this scope but it would cost several hundred dollars-- Celestron will probably sell you the parts to fix it. Here is their web site. You can also return the mount to them for repair.
