Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time,. Also line-up the small finder scope with the main telescope.

The moon should be your first target at night.

Why is everything upside down and backwards, With my vivitar telescope


All astronomical telescope show upside down images. It's normal, nothing is wrong with your scope. You can buy an "erecting prism" diagonal for terrestrial viewing.

Viewfinder views things backwards


Yes, most finder scopes show upside down images, it's completely normal.

This is an astronomical telescope. Even the main tube shows upside down images unless you use what is called an "erecting prism" for terrestrial viewing.

Veiwing is like looking at a do-nut? nothing in center


The focuser and eyepiece are POINTED UP toward the sky -- the mirror is at the bottom of the tube.

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

Cannot see anything out of main telescope


Do NOT use the barlow lens-- put the lowest magnification eyepiece into the scope-- practice focusing on the moon -- turn the focus knob slowly in and out until you get a sharp image.

Telescopes only show an area of sky about 1 degree wide or LESS--- this is about the size of the TIP of your finger held at arms length................ your scope is best used at low magnification.
