NO, you do not need a diagonal. The eyepiece goes directly into the focuser.

images in astronomical telescopes are always INVERTED-- you can buy an "erecting prism diagonal" for terrestrial viewing, but it is not needed for star gazing.

  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

What is the switch for below the viewing lens on a Celestron Astromaster EQ76 telescope?


Your picture is not very clear. However there is a complete setup video located here. I did NOT notice any switch near the eyepiece; only the thumbscrews used to hold the eyepiece in the focuser.
