You mean how to point the telescope?

Objects in the sky are very tiny. Usually no larger than the tip of your finger held at arm's length. The scope must be pointed directly at them to see them. Take the telescope outside in the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. Use the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it. This will be your lowest magnification. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

We don't know how to operate the telescope! instructions only covered assembly! how to operate?


HI mthrede,

What you need to do after the assembly is to get both the telescope and the small sighting scope Calibrated so that they are both looking at the same object.

Start in the daylight and use the main telescope to scan your local landscape. What you are looking for is the likes of the tops of telephone poles, radio towers, or such to lock on to. You may need to use that focus knob down by the eye piece to clear your view. After this is done, adjust the little sighting scope to where it is looking at that same object. You are now ready for some night time viewing.

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 daytime and read my TIPS on my profile page.

Your finder is not aligned with your telescope. During the day time focus on a distant small object with the telescope-- then without moving the telescope adjust the crosshairs in the finder to match the telescope.

You need a 'spotting scope' adapter to right the image using a prism.
