Question about Bushnell 525x Deep Space Reflector Telescope
DID you mount the telescope BACKWARDS? The large mirror is on the bottom of the scope, the focuser on the side of the tube is on the UP end of the tube. I have seen many beginners mount these with the actual open end of the tube pointing at the ground!
Take the scope outside during the daytime and put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope. Practice focusing on a distant object.
At night the moon should be your first target. Remember that objects in the night sky are all smaller than the tip of your finger held at arms length. The scope must be pointed directly at them in order to see anything in the eyepiece.
