Good news! You can fix this very easily! The threads for tripod to camera mounting have been standardized for decades!

What you require is a 1/4-20 bolt of any type. You can go to any hardware store and find a huge selection.....many will even have a knurled knob on the end for hand-tightening. Places like Home Depot have large bins with just about every type bolt imaginable.

THE most IMPORTANT thing is choosing the correct length. Too long, and overtightening can damage your camera. Along with your bolt purchase, get a matching 1/4-20 nut to act as a backstop so you do not screw it in too far. You only need to have the bolt screw into your camera about 1/4" to secure it. You can also add a 1/4 inch flat washer to keep the nut off your camera's finish. Your bolt needs to be long enough to go through your tripod mount and then into your camera.

FYI- The "1/4-20" designation means that the bolt is 1/4 inch in diameter, with a thread "pitch" of 20 threads per inch.

Good Luck, and Thank You for using FixYa!

Missing mount for camra to mount to tri pad 1'3/4 x 1'3/4


Take a look at www.tripodquickrelease.com, they have some in that size, look under Vanguard or Velbon, those are usually more generic and fit more tripods.

It probably just screws onto the tripod-- this is a very simple telescope. Read myu tips on my profile page-- take it back to Toys R Us if it will not attach-- and never buy that brand again. We receive the most complaints with that telescope.

You may be able to call Galileo telescopes and order the parts.

If not and if the eyepiece is a 1.25 inch (measure the hole in the focuser), then you can buy eyepieces and weights from several different retailers on-line:

The screw you can find at a well stocked hardware store.

Need a manual or directions to put telescope together


The eyepieces have numbers written on them-- the bigger the number the LOWER the magnification. Start with the eyepiece with the BIGGEST number-- practice focusing the scope during the daytime on a distant object..,..... once you do.. switch eyepieces .... and see how much closer everything looks.

Try for the moon as your first target at night--- you can download a free star chart at www.skymaps.com
