Question about Bausch and Lomb Professional 200 (200 x 114mm) Telescope
Got tasco 49114500 telescope and has no details on how the eye pieces work, I can see some things like trees and hills with the large eye piece but the two smaller one I cant see a thing how do I fit /use them,
Here is a beginner's instruction on different types of telescopes--
Yes I know the box said 650 power but that was a BIG BIG lie-- the smaller the number on the eyepiece the more magnification. Do NOT use the 2x barlow which doubles the normal eyepiece power in these small telescopes--- just way to much magnification. This is NOT necessary to view the sky at night. I almost NEVER go over 100 power in my 8 inch telescope-- once in a while maybe 175 power. Sp use the eyepiece with the largest number on it--- to practice focusing during the daytime.
Try to locate a local Astronomy club and attend one of their star parties and ask questions. You can bring the telescope with you and they will help you with it.

You're on the right track since you can see something with the large eyepiece. The smaller ones will work the same basic way, but only for objects that are farther away. When you use a smaller eyepiece, the magnification goes up, and usually, the higher power eyepieces may not work for close objects.
Try looking thru the middle size eyepiece at a very distant big object, that is much further away, like at least 1/4 or 1/2 mile, in daytime. Try adjusting thru the entire adjustment range slowly, and at some point, you should see the image appear, and sharpen up.
The middle eyepiece will be typically be harder to focus easily, since the focus range is smaller. Likewise, the smallest eyepiece will be even touchier, but its the same process. Just turn the adjustment knob slowly.
It also helps sometimes to hang a weight like a book from the center of the telescope or tripod to help stabilize everything.
All of this will be easier in the daytime first to get practise, and to learn how careful you have to be. Good Luck.
