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.

How can I use my telescope to safely view the solar eclipse?


Yes, you can, but with qualifications. You are evidently aware that you must never view the sun through the eyepiece of a scope without proper protective attachments being used. Blindness in that eye will be instant. Solar eclipse spectacles will not be sufficient protection as the light is focused powerfully at the eyepiece.

You can safely use a glass solar filter which attaches to the front of the scope. Tape it on for extra safety.

http://www.optcorp.com/astrozap-1506-glass-solar-filter-fa-73mm-79mm.html

You can attach a piece of solar-protective film to the front aperture of the scope. Do so securely.

http://www.optcorp.com/astrozap-solar-film-250mm-x-250mm-visual-az-1030.html

You should not ever use a solar viewing filter which attaches to the end of the eyepiece. There were a lot of these around until governments began banning them. The danger is that the concentrated heat of the solar image at that point will crack the filter, leaving your eye unprotected in an instant.

We just got our Bushnell Voyager 78-9945 Reflector Telescope. It comes with the poorest manual I have ever seen. How do you assemble the eye piece?, what is the little shiny metal triangle piece for? Does...


I think I already answered this question. Eyepieces are NOT assembled they are one piece like this picture:
http://www.amazon.com/Celestron-93342-17MM-Plossl-Eyepiece/dp/B000YKZKNI

They simply slip into the hole of the focuser -- straight in. The larger the number written on the eyepiece the LOWER the magnification.

In the picture above there is a metal triangle holding the tripod legs apart-- it is called a "tripod spreader" or a tripod "tray"-- used for holding eyepieces and other small pieces of equipment while you are using the scope.

Hope that helps you.

I bought a jason mercury model 407 which needs an eye piece.can some tell me where to order it and part number?


This scope has a ,965 in. diagonal (measure the diameter of the diagonal opening.) max power is about 120x
I would get a 20mm for low power e.g. http://cgi.ebay.com/Meade-Telescope-965-20mm-Eyepiece-New-Inexpensive-/270719705992?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item3f0826e388

and a 9mm for higher power http://cgi.ebay.com/9MM-965-inch-Meade-telescope-eyepiece-NEW-/230597193693?pt=LH_DefaultDomain_0&hash=item35b0a9efdd

These are cheap eyepieces but it is a cheap scope. I would not put a lot of money into it.

If you get interested in astronomy, purchase a quality Celestron, Meade or Orion (for example) reflector scope.

Hi glad to see this i found a looks like a 5 in celestron with a wood tripod most parts are there need eye piece and the mirror it looks in to


This is a reflector style telescope. Measure the hole in the focuser-- eyepieces come in 3 sizes-- .965, 1.25, and 2 inch sizes. Buy the correct size. These are sold by many on line retailers, here is one:

I was just given a telescope and I need a reliable place to purchase parts. The main piece i'm looking for is an adjustor ring on the aiming scope and some different eye pieces


Meade may have the part, but I doubt it. You can call them here:

http://www.meade.com/support/index.html

It might be easier just to replace the finder scope with one of these:

or this:

Eyepieces can be purchased at many on-line retailers. Here are two:

Can't see out of eye piece


This is a reflector style telescope. The MIRROR is in the base! Light enters the front near the focuser and goes down the tube and bounces off the mirror and back to the front and through the eyepiece. The EYEPIECE end is pointed up.

Your scope TUBE should look like the reflector telescope on this web page:

http://www.amazon.com/Edu-Science-Astro-Nova-102-Telescope/dp/B001NLOQN2

Wish you had NOT bought this telescope. For about the same price you could have bought this:
http://www.telescope.com/control/product/~category_id=classicdobs/~pcategory=dobsonians/~product_id=08942

The scope above has a 6 inch mirror which is almost twice the size of the scope you bought.

I cannot sight anything even the moon


The likely hood is, that the scope needs collimating.
If you don't have a collimator, you can easily purchase one, online.
I discovered the same problem with my scope, until I collimated it.
There are many different types available, 'Red Dot' lasers, or just simply a pin hole in a eye piece fitment.
The 'catseye', is the one I got.
It may seem a little complicated at first, but after you have figured it all out works, it will become clear, and once you've collimated for the first time, it takes no time at all to re-collimate.
There ya go, fixedYa!
P.s, don't forget to give a good thumbs up thankyou :)

Black spot in the center of the image viewed in telescope


If this is a Newtonian reflector or a catadioptric scope (Schmidt Cassegrain or Maksutov) you may be trying to use it at too low of a magnification. Your magnification needs to be high enough that the exit pupil is less than 5 mm; to figure this divide the focal length of the eyepiece by the f-ratio of the optical tube. If this quotient is 5 mm or more the black spot you are seeing is the shadow of the secondary mirror.
