First you realize that you bought a $50 telescope! These are really toy telescopes that are not suitable for Astronomy.

We really cannot teach you how to be an amateur astronomer. Objects in the night sky are very tiny, the scope must be pointed directly at them to see anything.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope focuser. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object. The moon should be your first target at night.

Manual for national geographic NG-76AZ telescope


The NG76AZ is made by Citiwell, but the only manual I can find is on retrevo for the 114 (the adjustments are the same, though). If you have a specific question about using the scope, post it here or go to cloudynights-dot-com, it's a forum & they have a beginners area that's really helpful!

NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC TELESCOPE NG76AZ where can i get a solar filter and additional lenses etc for above 76mm telescope


Do NOT attempt to look at the Sun through a solar filter! These can crack from the heat and you will be blinded instantly.

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. None of these will be made by National Geographic, 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. Avoid eyepieces marked with the letters "H" or "SR" before the focal length.

I got a ng76az telescope for christmas and idk how to put in the lens or where to put them in.


Nicole, I think I can help. I will post a URL below where you can download a user manual for your scope. It should have all the info you need. Also tonight at about 12:15 central time there is a complete lunar eclipse, visible in the US where I am.If you are in the US canada or mexice it will be visible. You might want to point your scope at that. Good luck with it.

Got a( model:NG76AZ Focal Length:700mm


Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one.

Try focusing on a distant object during the daytime.
