Everything is black, even when there

Whenever we look through the telescope everything is black despite all the trouble shooting we've done. We can't even see a full moon!

Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number into the telescope. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow.

Go outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object.

Hello, I have a canon rebel xti. It's about 4 years old and up until this point has worked perfectly. However, currently on a trip in Europe and when I went to shoot this morning, I can only capture...


currently on a trip in Europe and when I went to shoot this morning, I can only capture 1/3 of the area I'm shooting. That is everything in the lower 2/3 of the screen is black. I've tried a couple of lenses with no avail. Viewing previous pics is not a problem, so this is obviously not a screen problem. I'm thinking something with the mirrors? Any suggestionns

Rokinon 900 mm x 130 mm Reflector Telescope everything is upside when you look in the len. Dont know how to fix this trouble


Astronomical telescopes normally show an upside down image. There is a good reason for this- erecting the image needs more bits of glass in the light path, which reduces the amount of light and increases aberrations. Even if this is only slight, astronomers prefer to avoid it, and they don't really care which way up the Moon or Jupiter appear. It is possible to fit an erecting prism or eyepiece to most astronomical telescopes, and some of them come with one.

Completed setup, can't see anything through eyepiece.


I answered your question already-- TURN THE SCOPE around you have it mounted backwards! The eyepiece end is pointed UP. Like the picture above in your question.

I've completed the set-up, but the eyepiece still is black. I looked in the trouble shooting guide and it says to check to see if the objective lens cover has been removed. Where is the objective lens...


What I believe you did was mount the scope UPSIDE DOWN. If it looks like the picture in your question the eyepiece and focuser end is pointed UP the mirror is on the bottom.

Turn it around and take the lens cap off.... this end is pointed toward the sky.

Everything's black


You never said what type of telescope you have.

Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope. This is your LOWEST magnification. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.
