DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Try again. The field of view is VERY small. You must be pointed DIRECTLY at the moon or any other object to see it in the eyepiece.

Cannot see anything thru telescope even daytime


  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.
  8. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  9. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  10. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

Can I take clear good pictures of a full moon on a clear night?


You're going to face two separate problems here.

One, the moon occupies a rather small portion of the night sky. Even fully zoomed in, the moon is going to be not much more than a bright spot in the sky.

Two, the camera is designed to assume that almost every scene is an average brightness. Given how much of the scene is a black sky, the camera will attempt to render the sky as average (what photographers call a "medium gray"). This will result in a picture with a gray sky and a featureless white blob for the moon.

If you think about it, the full moon is nothing more than a really big rock under a midday sun. Thus what you want is the same exposure as when taking a picture on a clear sunny day. Unfortunately the camera is going to be fooled by all that dark sky and try to compensate for it. What you really need is to be able to bypass the camera's light meter and set the proper exposure yourself. The C195, unlike more sophisticated cameras, doesn't allow you to do so. Sorry, but that's just the way it is.

Cant get an image.Is it right that the view finderimage is upside down


The image of all astronomical telescopes are upside down (SCTs are upside down and reversed). RACI (right angled, correct image) finders do produce a right-side up image. For daytime use a erect image prism eyepiece.
Follow below instructions (except 7 in your case)

  1. Get Stellarium or another fine astronomy program
  2. During the day, point the telescope at a part of the landscape about 100 yards away.
  3. Use the lowest power eyepiece (highest number) in the focal tube.
  4. Center the landscape object in the telescope.
  5. Align the finder scope so that it points exactly where the main telescope is.
  6. At night, leave the scope out to reach thermal equilibrium (about an hour for small reflectors and refractors)
  7. If the scope is on a EQ mount, polar align.
  8. Point the finder at the moon. The moon should be in the main scope also.
  9. Practice finding the moon before you start on the planets
  10. Once you are comfortable with the moon and planets, you can go for the deep sky objects

DO NOT USE the barlow at all your scope is too small to get that much magnification.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser and point it at a distant object during the day time. Practice focusing. The moon should be your first target at night.

Read my tips on my profile page.

Cant see ****


Cannot see anything in the daytime? We need more details.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Try focusing on a distant object during the day time.

You must follow the setup procedures in the manual for accurate GOTO function at night.

No images


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Do not use the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. At night the moon show be your first target.

Sky objects are very small, many are also very dim. The scope has to be pointed directly at them to see anything.

The end with the eyepiece is POINTED UP by the way. The mirror is in the bottom of the tube. Read my TIPS on my profile page for additional help. Also this is an EQ mounted telescope. It must be polar aligned in order to work properly.

We never recommend EQ mounted telescopes to beginners.

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.
