Question about Meade Polaris 60EQ-D (36 x 60mm) Telescope

1 Answer

I am a beginning amateur astronomer and received a Meade Polaris 60EQ-D as a gift for my hobby. I can't see anything. I have ensured that all the caps are off. I can see distant objects through the viewfinder but not through any of the eye pieces no matter how much focusing I do. I can't understand what I'm doing wrong and I am on the verge of calling it quits. Please help.

Put the eyepiece with the LARGEST number written on it into the focuser. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one. Try focusing on a distant object during the daytime--- again.

Have a meade 60eq, can not see anything through the eyepiece. No matter how much I focus there is no image have I done something wrong our is the eyepiece messed up ?


See the picture above? put the diagonal into the focuser and then put the eyepiece with the largest number written on it into the diagonal. DO NOT USE the 2x barlow if you have one.

Take the scope outside during the day time and practice focusing on a distant object------ make sure the lens cap on the front is OFF.

How do I change out the main lense in my Polaris 60EQ-D


Your scope only has ONE main LENS in the front. You change magnification using the eyepieces. If the main lens is broken you must contact Meade here:

A friend of mine just purchased a used Polaris 60EQ-D telescope and asked if it can be used for terrestrial viewing. Are there any types of lens adapters to flip the view to right side up?


Yes they are called "erecting diagonal" like this one:
