DID you mount the telescope BACKWARDS! This is a reflector style telescope. The mirror is on the BOTTOM of the telescope, the focuser is near the front UP end of the telescope.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Go outside during the daytime and practice focusing on a distant object.

Objects in the sky are VERY tiny you can be right next to them and not see anything.

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.

The eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it is your lowest magnification.

Put the eyepiece into the focuser and practice focusing on a distant object during the day time. The image will be upside down. NOTHING is wrong. All astronomical telescopes show upside down images.

I am having problems viewing


All astronomical telescopes show upside down images. There is no up or down in space. To ERECT the image would take additional GLASS lenses. MORE glass means less light pass-through for those dim sky objects.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT USE THE 2x or 3X barlow.

Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

Eye piece shows upside down


Its meant to be upside down its a newtonian reflector. If you want it to be right way up you will have to buy a diagonal eye piece or glue your shoes to the roof!
