Eyepieces are typically expensive. Here is a link to some lower cost ones at $24 each. You only need 1 or two to get started. try 25mm and 12mm.

Have a meade 60eq, can not see anything through the eyepiece. No matter how much I focus there is no image have I done something wrong our is the eyepiece messed up ?


See the picture above? put the diagonal into the focuser and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. 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------ make sure the lens cap on the front is OFF.

I need to find a new lens. where can i get it?


Eyepieces come in 3 sizes-- .965, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes. Measure the hole in the focuser and buy the correct size.

Here are 2 retailers that sell eyepieces:

Bushnell 78-9003 telescope purchased at yard sale with no eyepiece. Where can I purchase one that will fit? It talks about a .965 inch eyepiece.


.965 eyepieces are readily available on ebay. A meade 25mm MA (modified achromat) is about $10 plus shipping This will give you 700mm/25mm= 28x power. Avoid any eyepiece marked with a H (Huygens) as they have terrible field of view.
.965 is not a popular size anymore and Bushnell does not make very good telescopes. Don't get frustrated, if you are still interested, buy a Meade, Celestron, Orion quality telescope.

How do I change out the main lense in my Polaris 60EQ-D


Your scope only has ONE main LENS in the front. You change magnification using the eyepieces. If the main lens is broken you must contact Meade here:

Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Try focusing on a distant object during the daytime--- again.

I got a Meade Model 4600 at a yard sale with no info on it. I think it is missing a lens. Is there any way I can find out. Also, is there any written material or directions I can get for it? Thanks. K


This is a reflector style telescope on an Equatorial mount.

The mount must be polar aligned in order to use it. Read my TIPS on equatorial mounts on my profile page.

The eyepieces slip right into the focuser. The LARGER the number written on the eyepice the LOWER the magnification.

Here are all the Meade manuals, find your telescope near the REFLECTOR topic header:

Missing the eye piece for the Meade saturn 60az-m


ebay is a great resource for eyepieces, i would suggest a 26mm ma.
the eyepiece should drop in. if not you might be missing the image erecting diagonal. when the eyepiece is installed you should be looking perpendicular at the tube.
