Trouble focusing Vivtar telescope

I have pointed my telescope at the moon and the only way I can get it to focus (so that I can see the craters) is to focus it all the way out and then remove the lens and pull it back out a little farther. If I don't pull the lens out it is still not in focus.

Put the diagonal into the telescope, DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope and try again.

Do i need anything special at night table top telescope i can not see anything


All telescopes have very small fields of view-- it must be pointed directly at the object in the sky or you will not see anything. Simply put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser-- then during the day time practice focusing on a distant object like a building or telephone pole.

The moon should be your first target at night.

I have had this model for years and I had it focused on the moon once and have never been able to get any of the three viewers to see anything? Is there something I can do to ?


Objects in the sky are tiny-- smaller than the tip of your finger held at arms length. If you can focus on the moon and see the craters nothing is wrong except you do not know how to locate objects in the night sky.

I dontknow how to look through it andfocus on a star,or moon


Hi Joe, I'm Mark.
The small scope on top of your big scope is called the "finder" scope. Probably 2X or 4X. It should have cross hairs in the view. Find the moon with it. It will also require focusing but since the moon is bright, you can get an idea where it is in the lens by that.
Next. Find the LOWEST power eyepiece to insert into the lens holder. And rotate the focus knob.
Hopefully, you will see some bright blurry thing and then you can focus on it.
After you get it in focus, put on a more powerful lens and look at the craters on the moon.
Note: You will need to adjust your telescope to the earth's rotation. Your scope should have
instructions for accomplishing this.
Hope this helps,
Best, Mark

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.

Cant see any thing


Did you remove the lens cap? If the scope is like the picture in your question this is a REFLECTOR style telescope. It has a mirror in the bottom and a smaller secondary mirror under the focuser. The FOCUSER end is pointed UP. as in the picture above.

Can you focus on a distant object during the day time? Use the eyepiece with the largest number written on it and DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Try focusing during the day time. If this works your telescope is OK. Then try the moon at night as your first target.

If you can see the moon up close all is OK.

The telescope is designed to use the diagonal - it adds the necessary length to reach a focus point.

I am 9 can't see out of my galileo 700x60 telescope what do i need to do


there are 3 types of telescopes:
1)refractor, uses lenses
2)reflector, uses mirrors
3)catadioptric, uses both

try this and practice doing this during the day time, it's easier.

get your eyepiece, the one with the highest number on it (# mm); this is your lowest power eyepiece, always use this first (wider view and easier to see where you're pointing it), and place it in your telescope.

next, use the focusing knob to focus on a target (a faraway tree, lamp post, etc.). once you have it focused, and if you want to get a closer look, get the next highest number eyepiece and refocus on the target. this is how you change magnification.
if you have a barlow lens (2x or 3x) this will also change the magnification by 2x or 3x without having to buy other eyepieces, although you can still buy more.
put it together in this order:
eyepiece-->barlow lens-->telescope

use the star diagnal for land viewing.

if you have a reflector telescope,
the open part of the telescope tube next to the focuser points to your target. focus it the same as above.

oh, and sometimes, with refractors, you might have to use the
45 degree or 90 degree diagnal to focus the telescope.

and google how to use a telescope. there's nice observing tips :D

hope this helps :D

oh, and check out the moon at night. it's a very nice target.
best time to observe the moon is when it's not full.
you gotta check out the 'terminator' (area on the moon where the light and darkness is separated.

How do I focus on the moon. Model 1400150. I have been gifted this telescope. Tried to focus on moon. Dont know how. Took big cap off end. Looked throughscope on top of large cylinder. Tried to focus...


first, use the lowest power eyepiece, that's the one with the high number on it with 'mm' after the number.

for a refractor telescope (uses lenses), you might have to add a diagnal lens (either 45 degree or 90 degree, whichever one you have) to focus on an object.
attach it in this order:

low power eyepiece-->diagnal lens-->main telescope

for a reflector telescope (uses mirrors, a telescope with a big tube with a mirror at the bottom and a focusing knob on one side of the tube). the open part of the tube points to your target.

hope this helps :D
