Eypieces in telescopes usually come in two sizes .9" and 1.25" diameter. There are hundreds of scientific companies or telescope companies that can supply you with an inexpensive replacement. The eyepiece focal lengths, usually in millimeters, determines the magnification of the telescope. The focal length of the main lens divided by the focal length of the eyepiece is the magnification of the telescope. Usually two eyepieces are enough for your scope. Good luck

My daughter recieved a telescope 50x/100x w/ tripod for christmas and we are unable to see anything out of it? Not to mention that one of the focus lens did not come with a cap.


This is considered a toy telescope. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the focuser-- DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Practice focusing on a distant object during the day time.

We have a Vivitar 50x/100x Refractor Telescope. I can't find the eye pieces. Any ideas on where to find them online? Most of the comments/reivews I've read say it's not a good telescope...


Commonly available astronomical telescope eyepieces are 1.25 inches in outside diameter. If the eyepiece tube on your scope is that dimension (inside diameter) then you will have no trouble finding lots of them in various focal lengths on Amazon or eBay. However, there are lots of "toy" telescopes that use proprietary eyepieces of smaller sizes, and these would be harder to get hold of.

No replacement parts available for that telescope. Suggest you take the tripod to a well stocked hard ware store and see if they have any screws, bolts, or clamps that would repair the tripod.

You can buy another photo tripod of course.

You can buy an eyepiece from 1000 different retailers-- just get the correct SIZE usually 1.25 inch BUT many of these smaller scopes have .965 eyepieces-- MEASURE the hole. Here are two places that sell eyepieces--
