Are the white dots in the same place? You may have dust on your lens.
Take note if the spots move, if they do then I'm sorry it could be your eye...but if they are in the same place no matter where you are looking it would most likely be dust (or something) on the lens.

I CANT SEE OUT OF THE TELESCOPE AT ALL


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object like a building or telephone pole.

Looking at the moon with the 50 or 100 magnification on my Vivitar Telescope all I see is a extremely small white dot. I have tried focusing back and forth very slowly to no avail. What is the problem and...


Well first thing is you bought a junk telescope. Vivitar, Bushnell, Tasco are all considered toy telescopes.

Sorry-- but it is the truth. Read my TIPS on my profile page. These scopes are NOT suitable for Astronomy. You would have been better buying a pair of 10x50mm binoculars which are almost the same lens size as this scope.

Put the eyepiece with the LOWEST number written on it into the scope. This is your highest magnification. Try the moon again with this eyepiece.

Cant see anything through the telescope


The red dot finder is NOT lined up with the main tube. During the daytime locate a distant object with the main tube eyepiece. Without moving the telescope adjust the red dot to point at the exact same spot.

I have no manual for my galaxsee 45-060525


This is a simple small refractor telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2 x barlow if you have one.

Practice focusing on a distant object during the daytime- you are not focusing the scope properly.

Here is Tasco's manuals web site:

Wont focus correctly


TOO MUCH magnification. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow. Try Jupiter with lower magnification.

I cannot sight anything even the moon


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 :)

I really do not know how to use it. It's rather awkward to look through the lens. What does the red dot finderscope really do?


1. Please read menual proper.You can see live demo through company website also.
2. Start with lower resolution eyepiece.For thet you see the meximum number on eyepice.Than you start first to see moon.Because mon is a brightest obect of the sky 7 easy to find.than you go planet etc.
3.Finderscope is a taegt shooter.Please switch of finderscope.You can see two red dot in the finderscope. Than you aline the object ine sky with two red dot. Move the telescope up to in line(Obeject which you want to see and two red dot).
Now you can see in the eyepice to megnifing image of object.

Red dot finder doesn"t turn on


I had this problem too. You need to go into the "red dot finder" menu each time and just go into each option and confirm the blink intensity, etc. After I do this, it turns on.

Black dot.


Ensure focusing is spot on. if your image is a black dot surrounded by white light (like a doughnut) then your not in focus. Look at making a Hartmann Mask (really easy, just google for it), which fits over the front lens. It has 2 or more holes in it,this means when you look through the eye piece you will see double images, adjust focus until the images merge into one (if the images go further apart turn the focuser the other way), when they are merged remove the mask and presto you should be in optimum focus. Always remember telescopes are very sensitive and focussing requires delicate adjustments.
