Your mirror is probably stuck in the upward position. If so, your camera will need servicing.

Why doesn't my camera focus through the eyepiece, but the LCD screen is focused? whats wrong with they focus on my eye piece?


in the manual, page 24 you find the know, to adjust the focus of the viewfinder It is number 23 in the picture.
Use tarts to adjust the focus of the viewfinder, before you try to focus an object in the viewfinder 18582f94-6d15-4977-92a3-1d175dd53123.png

I have a newtonian telescope 76mm with SR4, H12.5 and H20. I have aligned the crosses up and can see through the viewfinder but nothing through the eye piece. Ive placed all the other lenses into the eye...


YOU MUST align the small finder scope with the main tube.

Point the scope at a distant object like the top of a telephone pole. GET the top in the center of the eyepiece in the main scope.

Then without moving the scope-- adjust the cross-hairs in the small finder scope so they line up on the same object.

See nothing through my brand new telescope


I suggest that you try the telescope first in daylight (NOT pointed at or near the Sun), using the least powerful eyepiece (the one with the largest number). Try it on objects on the horizon, remembering that they will appear upside down. This is a good time to get the accessory viewfinder scope lined up with the main scope, too. It is unlikely that the finder scope will be much use in pointing the telescope until you adjust it to precisely line up with the main scope.

When you have become familiar with the low power eyepiece, try a higher power, which will focus at a different point (and be harder to find objects with). Then try it out at night, on a bright, easily found object like the moon.

The higher the power of eyepiece on a telescope, the dimmer the image, the more difficult to aim it at any chosen object, and the more difficult to focus. Do not use the Barlow lens if one came with the scope. There is a very wide range of movement in the focus mechanism, because different eyepieces focus at different points, but the actual focus range for any eyepiece will be a small part of the overall range afforded by the focusing mount. You will also find the the object you are looking at swims out of the viewing field, and you must continually move the scope to follow it. This will be more pronounced at higher magnifications.

My father received a really nice Maede telescope, model 2114 I believe, a while ago, and I decided to take it out of it's attic resting place to actually get it working. However I believe it is missing the...


Most telescopes use a standard fitting eyepiece with a 1.25 inch outside diameter barrel. You can measure the mount where the eyepiece goes to make sure that yours is this size, then search on eBay or Amazon for "1.25 eyepiece" and you will find many available. Some of these will even be made by Meade, but any make will fit.

The other variable will be the focal length of the eyepiece, which is what determines it's power. The power of the scope will be the focal length of the main objective divided by the focal length of the eyepiece, so a 9mm eyepiece will give a higher magnification (and be dimmer and harder to focus and find objects) than a 20mm eyepiece. It is usual to have two or three different focal length eyepieces for viewing different objects.

You will find a large variation in prices, which is partly due to the difference in quality and type of construction of the eyepieces. Kellner eyepieces are simple and cheap, whereas Possl or orthoscopic ones are more complex and cost more. There are reasons why people will pay more for the better eyepieces.

Polaris by meade all set up but cant see anything but a white light.


Sounds like it is severely unfocussed. Finding the focus point on an astronomical telescope is often difficult until you have had experience with it, as the range of adjustment is very long to accommodate eyepieces of different focal lengths.

I suggest that you try the telescope first in daylight (NOT pointed at or near the Sun), using the least powerful eyepiece (the one with the largest number). Try it on objects on the horizon, remembering that they will appear upside down. This is a good time to get the accessory viewfinder scope lined up with the main scope, too. When you have become familiar with the low power eyepiece, try a higher power, which will focus at a different point (and be harder to find objects with). Then try it out at night, on a bright easily found object like the moon.

I can see the moon clearly through the viewfinder but when I look through the eye piece holder I cant see anything. only a dim white blur. I assume that the black felt on the front lense needs to stay...


I don't understand about looking through the eyepiece holder. Is there an eyepiece in the holder? Without it you won't see anything. With it, you will see fuzzy blobs if it isn't in focus. Try using the least powerful eyepiece that you have to start with. Finding focus with the more powerful ones takes practice.

I also don't understand what the black felt you refer to is. Telescopes normally have a protective cap over the front opening, which is removed for viewing, but I have never seen one made of felt.

Can see object through viewfinder, but no image when looking through eyepiece of optical tube


PUT the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

Completed setup, can't see anything through eyepiece.


I answered your question already-- TURN THE SCOPE around you have it mounted backwards! The eyepiece end is pointed UP. Like the picture above in your question.

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.
