All eyepieces go into the FOCUSER end of the telescope. You never said if this is a REFRACTOR or a REFLECTOR style telescope.

On a refractor you have a lens in the front and the focuser in the back.

On a reflector the focuser is on the SIDE of the telescope near the front end.

The diagonal goes in first --- and the eyepiece goes into the diagonal -- if this is a refractor style telescope. Here is a picture of the DIAGONAL.

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.

It is NOT in focus.

Take the scope outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object. Turn the focusing knob until you get a sharp image in the eyepiece.

Where can I purchase eye piece rubbers for olive drab rubber coated 19x50 selsi?


Hi,

The eyepieces should be easily available through any good selsi agent. If they don't stock them they should be able to order them for you..

I cant see. am i putting it together wrong. the instructions


If your telescope looks like the picture, first put the "L" shaped diagonal into the telescope, and then the eyepiece with the LARGEST number on it.

Go outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object. Your first night time target should be the moon when it is less the 3/4 full.

This is a simple refractor telescope-- PUT the diagonal into the focuser and then put the eyepiece into the diagonal-- that's all there is too it! :)

Practice focusing during the day time on a distant object.
