The likely hood is, that the scope needs collimating.
If you don't have a collimator, you can easily purchase one, online.
I discovered the same problem with my scope, until I collimated it.
There are many different types available, 'Red Dot' lasers, or just simply a pin hole in a eye piece fitment.
The 'catseye', is the one I got.
It may seem a little complicated at first, but after you have figured it all out works, it will become clear, and once you've collimated for the first time, it takes no time at all to re-collimate.
There ya go, fixedYa!
P.s, don't forget to give a good thumbs up thankyou :)

    We were out last night trying to find the moon. It was driving me crazy then finally I got it in view. It takes some patience. The scope is hard to calibrate or we just are not doing it right. You can manually scan the sky and look for any light coming through the eyepiece. Then try to focus and slowly adjust the tripod to try and find the light source. Once you have it in view, you can't miss it. The moon filled the view in the telescope once we got it in view so it wasn't because the object was small or too dim to see.

I cancelled my amazon prime membership and need a refund please. My fiance just passed away and I need that money back into my checking account. Please!!


Sorry for your loss. You would need to contact Amazon customer service. This is a community where members help members. Fixya has nothing to do with amazon. It may take a few days due to how the banking process works. Amazon can try to push it thru but it may not work.

Focus the celestron 21043


What power eyepiece are you using? Use an intermediate power eyepiece like 20mm. This will give you a really nice view of the Moon. Too high a magnification eyepiece, will cause blur views.

I cannot see anything through the lens of my brand new 6 SE. What should I do?


During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube. Center the landscape object in the telescope. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour). Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

Brand new out of package loaded with correct staples.... unit does not work


I had one. didn't like it.they are herd to squeeze because they work backwards compared to a regular staple gun. Take it back for a refund,tell them it is not what you wanted. They never get staples to go flush with anything you use it on.Buy a Craftsman or a Arrow.I gave my Powershot away, and the person I gave it to threw it away.

I can't see anything out of the large scope


Use the 20mm to view an object (building, tree etc.) far away during the daytime. Align the finderscope to the object.
To view the moon, leave the scope out to equalize the temperature for at least 1/2 hour. Use the 20mm and no barlow. Point the scope towards the moon by sighting along the barrel of the scope, then use the finder to zero in on the moon. You may then switch to the 4mm eyepiece. for a more magnified view of the moon. You will have to keep moving the telescope because of the earth's rotation. The higher the magnification, the more you will have to adjust the scope. Because of the cheap finderscope, finding the planets will be difficult. Best to always sight down the length of the scope to get you close. The planets will be small and indistinct.
This is not a astronomical telescope! May be used for views of the moon but the cheap mount is not suitable for other planets. Max power would be 225x NOT 420x as advertised. The erecting prism is for terrestrial use only.
Nothing discourages an amateur astronomer more than a toy store telescope. My advise would be to use this scope for nature watching and go buy a good telescope (Meade, Celestron, Orion etc.). Even Those 60mm refractors are superior to this! A descent scope would cost a minimum of $200

Vac keeps shutting itself off!? vac bag is clear as is hose and wand


This problem is caused by the static electricity which causes the hose controls to jump back down to the off setting. I have seen this issue on several Silver Moon and Blue Moon models before.

The only way to fix this problem is to purchase a brand new, redesigned hose. The new hose can be purchased here; Miele Electric Hose Miele Part # SES 125

In fact, I'm so sure that this new hose will fix the problem to your Miele, that if you do purchase the hose from GoVacuum, we'll give you a 60 day satisfaction money back guarantee. If this hose doesn't fix your problem, you may return it to GoVacuum within 60 days for a full 100% refund, no restocking fees or shipping charges will be deducted. We'll even include a free return label you can use to return the hose to us at our expense!

If you have any questions, please feel free to send me an email, or request a clarification. I hope this helped you. If you found this solution helpful, please remember to rate this solution as helpful by clicking on the four THUMBS UP icons in the top right hand corner of this solution.

CELESTRON 127EQ faulty magnification


It won't increase viewing power by hundreds of time but it should be able to show you a close up view of the moon and planets where they look closer (or with the moon, parts of it look closer). When you say it looks further away, something is quite wrong as you know. It sounds like the eye piece is backwards in the mount? Can't imagine what else would make it smaller. Also can't imagine you could even get it in backwards. I have a scope by Meade that is essentially the same Newtonian design. Best of luck.
