I am looking for an eye piece for an inexpensive Vivitar telescope, probably a very basic model, which doesn't appear to have a model name or number on it. Daught brought it home from a friend but it didn't have the eye piece(s). Do you know how and where I can get them?
Eyepieces are for the most part interchangeable. Your scope will have a focuser on it in one of 3 diameters. 2", 1.25", and the rare .965". Most inexpensive scope will use a 1.25" eyepiece. 2" focusers are usually found on more expensive scopes used for astrophotography due to the increased field of view with the larger diameter. Plossl eyepieces are fairly inexpensive and are good for all around use. I would suggest getting 2 one at 25mm or greater and one around 9mm. http://www.telescopes.com has a large selection however their are many suppliers out there. Good luck and happy star hopping

Put the diagonal in the scope first and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. TURN THE FOCUS KNOB to focus the telescope. Practice during the day time on a distant object.
I'm surprised it did not come with the 20mm eyepiece. That is a good all-around eyepiece that works well for viewing across the bay or looking at the Moon. You may also want to get a barlow to "right" the Earth based images.
I recommend purchasing a 20mm eyepiece for your viewing pleasure. I hope this FixesYa!
Eypieces in telescopes usually come in two sizes .9" and 1.25" diameter. There are hundreds of scientific companies or telescope companies that can supply you with an inexpensive replacement. The eyepiece focal lengths, usually in millimeters, determines the magnification of the telescope. The focal length of the main lens divided by the focal length of the eyepiece is the magnification of the telescope. Usually two eyepieces are enough for your scope. Good luck
