Eyepieces ALWAYS go into the focuser. Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. Take it outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

The moon should be your first target at night. Read my TIPS on my profile page.

Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the scope and try again. Contact Bushnell directly for repairs:

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.

I dont know how to use the eye piece to get a view that i need. the scope is put together the end caps are off but nothing is coming into view through the yee piece


Put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the telescope. DO NOT use the 2x barlow if you have one. Go outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object.

If your scope is like the picture in your question, the focuser and eyepiece are on the UP end of the telescope. The mirror is the BOTTOM of the telescope, just like in the picture above.

When i look through th eye piece i dont see anything just black i dont know much about it except that i cant see anything out of it


If you have a refractor style telescope like the picture, put the diagonal into the scope, DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one.

Then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. Go outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object.

Sky objects are VERY small the scope must be pointed directly at them--- try for the moon first --- to learn how to focus properly. Just pointing it toward the sky will not do you any good.

I cant see. am i putting it together wrong. the instructions


If your telescope looks like the picture, first put the "L" shaped diagonal into the telescope, and then the eyepiece with the LARGEST number on it.

Go outside during the day and practice focusing on a distant object. Your first night time target should be the moon when it is less the 3/4 full.

I got a mead ds-114 telescope. & don't know how to use it!


the eye piece that came with your scope is too powerful... look on ebay or a site that sells telescopes. also look at the size of your eye piece holder... my ds-114 came with a 0.96 holder, these are an odd size.. the other size is 1.25 and the eye pieces are much easier to find. try looking at the moon when it is cresent shaped and start from there. if you have the autostar, you have to go through a set up sequence to start. then the scope will track the objects that you select on the goto function. don't give up!

CELESTRON 127EQ faulty magnification


It won't increase viewing power by hundreds of time but it should be able to show you a close up view of the moon and planets where they look closer (or with the moon, parts of it look closer). When you say it looks further away, something is quite wrong as you know. It sounds like the eye piece is backwards in the mount? Can't imagine what else would make it smaller. Also can't imagine you could even get it in backwards. I have a scope by Meade that is essentially the same Newtonian design. Best of luck.

Cannot see anything out of main telescope


Do NOT use the barlow lens-- put the lowest magnification eyepiece into the scope-- practice focusing on the moon -- turn the focus knob slowly in and out until you get a sharp image.

Telescopes only show an area of sky about 1 degree wide or LESS--- this is about the size of the TIP of your finger held at arms length................ your scope is best used at low magnification.
